Broken nose pain can be very debilitating. It is at its worst immediately following the accident, and since it can take a week or so for the swelling to start going down, you may well feel some discomfort for that period, and possibly longer.
While this is a normal part of suffering this injury, it doesn’t make everyday life any easier to handle. You may find bending over is painful, and trying to pick something up could be uncomfortable for you as well. You may be unable to work for a time, and depending on the nature of the break and how bad it was, you may also need medical treatment.
Can you claim for broken nose pain?
You can if you weren’t the one responsible for causing the break. Broken noses usually occur if someone is struck on the face or if they fall and hit their nose. The nose can be broken quite easily, more easily than many other bones in the body. However, this doesn’t mean you have any less pain when it happens.
It’s possible you injured your nose in a slip, trip or fall. If so, why did this happen? If there was a hazard that should not have been present, someone may have been negligent in not dealing with it. Similarly, if someone crashed into you, either as a pedestrian, a driver or a cyclist, you might have broken your nose in the impact.
