What are Broken Nose Claims?
Broken nose injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have broken your nose in an accident for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a broken nose injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time of your accident, the effect that the broken nose injury has had on your quality of life and the financial consequences of a broken nose.
Making Broken Nose Claims for Compensation
Broken nose injury claims have to show that a nose injury has been sustained and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a broken nose can be proven by your medical records, but establishing that a third party caused your nose injury through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.
Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your broken nose injury claim. At a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from your nose injury, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do or should not be made a priority ahead of recovering from your broken nose.
Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making broken nose injury claims for compensation with a solicitor as soon as practically possible. A solicitor will assess your claim for a broken nose injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your nose injury claim and advise you whether you have a claim for broken nose compensation which is worth your while to pursue.
How Much Compensation for a Broken Nose Injury Will I Receive?
How much compensation for a broken nose you will be entitled to receive will depend on your own personal circumstances. A solicitor will calculate the value of your broken nose injury claim by considering the severity of your nose injury in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the accident which was responsible for breaking your nose.
As mentioned above, the effect that a broken nose makes to your quality of life will also be taken into account along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still suffering from a nose injury. Any quantifiable psychological consequences of your nose injury accident – for example any confidence issues you may suffer due to the nature of your accident – will also be integrated into your broken nose injury claim.
You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your nose injury when making a claim for broken nose compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention for your broken nose to additional transport costs because you are unable to drive while recovering from your broken nose. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for broken nose injury compensation including overtime and pension contributions.
How much do Broken Nose Injury Claims Cost?
Provided your solicitor considers that there is a strong likelihood of your claim for broken nose injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your broken nose injury claim on a “No Win, No Fee” basis. This usually means that should you lose you nose injury claim you will not owe your solicitor for their legal fees and, if you win your broken nose claim, you will receive 100 percent of your compensation settlement.
However, not all solicitors offer “No Win, No Fee” broken nose injury claims on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for broken nose injury compensation be unsuccessful. Your solicitor should explain the exact terms and conditions to you prior to accepting your claim for broken nose compensation.
