Connecticut Broken Nose Lawyers

A broken nose injury is one of the most commonly seen facial injury suffered following an accident or injury. Often referred to as a nose fracture, this type of injury can be incredibly painful for the accident victim. Typically, either the cartilage or bone that lies over the bridge of the nose is damaged when a fracture exists. In addition, the sidewall of the nose, also known as the septum, can be fractured or impaired in a broken nose injury.

Besides two tiny rectangular shaped bones that are the bridge of the nose, the rest of the nose is simply veins, nerves, and cartilage. The nose is vulnerable and any slight trauma of the face may lead to a fracture or damage to any of these components of the nose. Not only are broken noses painful, they often require surgery to repair the damage and ensure that the break heals correctly. Since the nose is such a focal point of the face, accident victims who suffer from a nose fracture will likely need medical care.

Broken Nose Causes

Broken noses are caused by a wide variety of sources, situations, and accidents. The National Institute of Health suggests that nose injury typically goes along with some sort of neck injury. The reasoning behind this connection comes from the force of a trauma. If the impact is great enough to break the nose, it usually indicates that the neck has been injured as well. While there are certainly countless situations that may result in a broken nose, the following are the most common:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Slip and Falls
  • Sports Injuries
  • Workplace Accidents
  • Motorcycle Crashes
  • Defective Products

While these are the most commonly seen causes of injury, accident victims can suffer from a fractured nose in a variety of capacities. Even something like a dog bite attack may cause a breakage in the nose. Regardless of the cause, if you or a loved one has suffered injury due to another person’s careless behavior, you may be entitled to compensation.

Symptoms & Treatments for Nose Fractures

The nose is one of the most sensitive areas of the body. As such, many accident victims will suffer from some sort of trauma and be unaware that a fracture has taken place. Those who neglect to seek medical care for their broken nose may be subject to a number of additional issues related to healing improperly and not addressing possible further injury. Therefore, it is imperative to seek medical attention immediately following any type of trauma.

The following are the most common signs of a fractured nose:

  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Tenderness
  • Discharge of mucus
  • Nose bleed
  • Block nasal passages
  • Difficulty breathing
  • A change is the shape of the nose
  • Continuous nose bleeds
  • A clear, watery discharge coming from the nose

Understanding these symptoms is important for those wondering whether or not they will require attention from a physician. As a general rule, if you feel even one of the above symptoms, it is a smart idea to seek medical care. A doctor will conduct a physical exam or x-ray to assess the damage. Then, the nose may require surgery or a “closed reduction”. Because a closed reduction must be completed within 14 days of the injury, it is imperative for injured accident victims to seek medical attention immediately.
