A broken nose injury is the most common facial fracture and, apart from being swollen and painful to touch, can lead to far more serious health issues. For the nose to get broken there is usually considerable impact to the head – impact which can also cause the muscles of the neck being over-extended and result in whiplash-like injuries. A broken nose compensation claim could also become more complicated if the lining of the septal cartilage is damaged, leading to a permanent deformity which blocks the nasal passage and disables breathing through the nose.
Therefore, whenever you have sustained a broken nose you should visit the accident and emergency department of your local hospital or consult your family GP as soon as possible. Surgery may be required to correct any damage that has been caused by the accident, and sometimes even plastic surgery is needed to reshape the face. Thereafter, where the cause of your accident can be ascribed to the negligence of another person, you should consult with a solicitor about making a broken nose injury compensation claim.
Making a Broken Nose Injury Compensation Claim
Making a broken nose injury compensation claim is always best done with the assistance of an experienced personal injury solicitor. A solicitor will be able to advise you about claiming the full amount of broken nose injury compensation you are entitled to, plus any special damages in respect of out of pocket expenses or loss of earnings. Special damages could be vital if your face has been disfigured because of the broken nose injury, and you need plastic surgery to repair the damage.
Your claim for broken nose injury compensation is made to the Injuries Board Ireland, and it is always better to have your application form comprehensively completed by a legal professional in case there are any issues over liability, or the Injuries Board Ireland assesses your broken nose injury claim inadequately and leaves you undercompensated. It is better to have a solicitor involved from the very beginning when making a broken nose injury compensation claim so that, in any event where you may experienced difficulty claiming broken nose injury compensation, you do not have to start over again.
