A broken nose can happen to anyone who suffers a blow to this part of the face. Even a fall could result in this injury, especially if there is no time to put your hands out to break your fall before your face strikes the ground. While many broken noses do not require any real treatment, there are cases where broken nose reconstruction is required.
This normally occurs when the break puts the nose out of shape. When this happens, you will likely immediately notice there is a change to the way your face looks. If you have seen photos of other people with broken noses, you may see their nose slants in one direction instead of appearing central to their face.
A change in appearance might lead to a broken nose reconstruction
If the damage is severe, the only way to fix it is with reconstructive surgery. This is a significant process to undergo, and if you were injured through no fault of your own, it can be difficult to come to terms with the surgical procedure. Not only do you have the pain of the original injury, you must now undergo surgery as well. This takes time to get through, and you will need time off work as well.
If you are wondering whether you could make a claim following this procedure, it is best to get proper advice, just as you did with your injury when it first occurred. If this was within the last three years, you have time to make a claim.
