The severity and cause of nose injuries vary greatly, but if your nose has been damaged due to somebody else’s negligence, you could be entitled to claim compensation for your suffering.

It is sometimes difficult to know how much money you could eventually receive when you start a claim. For example, you could suffer an injury that requires X-rays but then heals without the need for surgical intervention, or alternatively you could require surgery for a nose deformity or damage to the tear ducts or airwaves, which may lead to loss of earnings and the need for ongoing medical treatment.

Types of Nose Injuries

Nose injuries can occur in almost any type of accident, from road traffic collisions and accidents at work to slips, trips and falls to sporting incidents. If caused by somebody else’s negligence a nose injury means that the injured party is entitled to make a claim for compensation. Such injuries include a deviated septum and a fractured or broken nose.

A broken nose can be extremely painful, with a lot of swelling and bleeding. You visit a hospital should you be involved in an accident that results in trauma to your nose, so that your injury can be properly checked over and any serious damage attended to.

Injuries to the nose vary in severity. Some are easy to recover from, while others cause long-lasting problems, such as loss of smell. This can have an impact on the amount of compensation you are entitled to, as you can see from the estimations above. For a more accurate estimate of how much you could claim, please get in touch with our team.

How Compensation Can Help You

A final compensation amount is based on the severity of your nose injury and the financial losses you experience as a result of your accident. Compensation also provides support to cover the cost of medical treatment, rehabilitation and any loss, or potential loss, of earnings.

A settlement can also include compensation for psychological pain and suffering, a particularly important factor in nose injury claims, given that nose injuries can sometimes cause facial disfigurement. Compensation can cover the cost of any counselling or psychiatric assistance required, making sure that you are able to make a full physical and emotional recovery.
