A blow to the face could cause an injury to your nose. Your nose may be damaged in an accident and you could claim compensation if you were not responsible. A nose injury is not usually life threatening, but it can cause a lot of emotional and physical distress. You should understand the symptoms of a nose injury so you know when to get help.
Make sure your symptoms aren’t serious
Any injury you receive as the result of an accident should receive medical treatment as soon as possible. This is not only so that you can provide medical evidence. It also means that hidden injuries are found and that you get the treatment you need to help you recover.
One symptom of a nose injury is bleeding, which should stop after a few minutes. One way to stop a nose bleeding is to tip your head back and pinch the bridge of your nose. Any bleeding which does not stop can indicate a more serious injury.
If your nose is broken you will feel tenderness, and there may be swelling around the nose and eyes. You may also find it difficult to breathe through your nose, which could look misshapen. If you have any of these symptoms, consult a doctor as soon as you can.
