Car accidents can cause a variety of injuries including facial fractures. It is believed that nasal fractures account for more than 50 percent of all facial fractures. It is a painful injury and can permanently change the physical appearance of the victim. These injuries are commonly caused when a high impact force strikes the nose and breaks the bone. The nose is made up of two small rectangular bones that make the bridge of the nose. The rest of the nose contains cartilage, blood vessels, and nerves. Whenever any of these components get injured, it results in a nasal fracture as well.
Symptoms of Nasal Fracture
Nasal fractures are quite painful and it is usually not hard to find out that the person has suffered a nasal fracture. If you suspect that the victim of a car accident might have suffered an injury, seek emergency medical treatment. If the head was also impacted in the accident, then there are risks for a traumatic brain injury, hemorrhage, brain swelling, and other medical complications. In case the victim is experiencing severe headache, fluid drainage from the nose, or has trouble breathing, get him or her immediate medical treatment.
Nasal fracture can cause a variety of symptoms including:
- blockage in one or both nostrils
- clear fluid discharge
- deformity of the nose
- tilting of nose bridge towards one side
- difficulty breathing or smelling
- difficulty talking
- pain in neck, face, or nose
- grinding feeling or sound when the nose is touched
- bruising, swelling, bleeding or lacerations in the nose or around eyes
Effects of Nasal Fractures
A person may experience some or all of the symptoms depending on the severity of the fracture. The consequences or long-term effects of a nasal fracture may not be immediately evident. Just like the case of other facial fractures, a nasal fracture may require dental work, oral surgery, or multiple cosmetic surgeries. Even after completing the medical treatment, the victim of a nasal fracture may experience recurrent headaches and loss of hearing. The victim may also have problems with sight and balance. Considering the long-term effects that a nasal fracture could have on a victim, it is extremely important to seek damages covering all medical and other related expenses. While calculating the amount to be recovered, you must take into account both the current medical bills and the estimated future medical costs and surgeries.
