After you have seen a medical practitioner and the extent of your nose injury is confirmed, it is possible to seek legal counsel. It is advisable that you consult a personal injury specialist solicitor in the first place since they will be able to better ascertain whether you have a claim for compensation or not. Although, there are no defined rules as to pursuing a claim following a broken or fractured nose, it should be proven that the fault was from another’s negligence and that they were in fact legally responsible for your injury and suffering sustained.
Scot Accident Claims Is Regarded At Scotland’s Leading Personal Injury Firm.
A nose can be either broken or fractured with swelling and blood common to both types of injury. However, if in doubt, it is always best to seek medical attention as a doctor will be able to determine whether a nose is broken or fractured through examination. Typical accidents which may result in a broken or fractured nose are that of road traffic accidents, accidents in the workplace or accidents caused through medical negligence on the part of a professional. As such, in many situations, a broken nose can occur through no fault of one’s own. Therefore, if you suffer a broken or fractured nose as a consequence of another’s carelessness especially where they are considered legally responsible for your injury then you may be able to claim for some compensation in respect of your suffering.
Our team of claim specialists are on hand throughout the working week to answer any questions or help you understand the claims process.
There is no specific figure as to the total compensation owed following a broken or fractured nose claim. The award of compensation is therefore reliant on the pain and suffering endured as well as the extent of your injuries accompanied by the duration of your symptoms. In all circumstances, an independent medical report would be sought by your legal representatives in order to ascertain your injuries and your probable compensation outcome. However, it should be acknowledged that a simple fracture without need to manipulate the bones to heal can welcome compensation from around £1,000 upwards whilst compensation for the total loss of your sense of smell can attract damages from around £16,000. Therefore, the total level of compensation is entirely dependent on the severity and duration of the broken nose or fracture in the first place. Further recovery of expenses that you have incurred would also be taken into consideration as well as travel costs and current and future loss of earnings.
You should consult a personal injury specialist as soon as is possible following your broken or fractured nose. A personal injury solicitor will be able to ascertain very quickly whether you have a case and if so the likely level of compensation that you can expect.
