Get help for a broken nose after an accident

You were traveling to visit a friend when the unexpected happened; a vehicle that was traveling the opposite direction suddenly moved into your lane and hit you head on.

When you woke up, you found yourself in the hospital. On top of a head injury, you had broken your nose. You were fortunate not to be more seriously hurt, but the injuries you woke up with were significant enough to cause pain and dysfunction.

How serious is a broken nose?

Of the two issues, your brain injury and broken nose, your broken nose is less serious but has a direct impact on how people see you and the way you breathe.

Broken noses can lead to obstructions and blockages of the nasal passages. X-rays and computerized tomography (CT) scans may be used to see how significant the damage is. If it's significantly out of place, then your doctor may have to manually realign your nose, or you may have to have surgery. Certain injuries, such as damage to the nasal septum, may make it hard for you to breathe and require reconstructive surgery.

There can be complications that arise from broken noses, such as infection from the bacteria that usually lives in the nose and difficulty breathing. It's important to go through a medical exam if your nose has been struck and to go through with follow-up visits to make sure the nose is healing correctly. You can pursue a claim to make the person responsible for your accident cover the costs related to your care during your recovery.
