Your nose may not be the same after a car wreck

You may not realize how important your nose is to your everyday life. While you use your nose to pick up scents, the ability to smell also affects your enjoyment of food. Further, because your nose occupies prime real estate on your face, it is essential to your overall appearance. 

As you likely know, there are a variety of injuries you may sustain in a car accident. While a nose injury may not interfere with your ability to walk or see, it may cause you to experience other limitations. Therefore, if you have a nose injury after a collision, you may need to seek fair compensation from the negligent motorist who caused the crash. 

Nosebleeds 

If you hit your nose on your vehicle’s airbag, steering wheel or anything else during an automobile accident, you may have an immediate nosebleed. Unfortunately, you may also have long-term problems because of frequent nosebleeds. That is, an injury you sustain during a collision may alter the structure of your nose. Without surgery, you may have to deal with sudden nosebleeds for the rest of your life. 

Fractures 

Your nose consists of skin, cartilage, muscle tissue and bone. Like the other bones in your body, the hard structures inside your nose can break. Not only is a broken nose often painful, but it can alter your appearance. Even worse, repairing a broken nose is not always easy. 

Chemical irritation 

Vehicle airbags save lives. Still, to make airbags work, automobile manufacturers must use chemicals. They also lubricate airbags with non-toxic materials, such as talcum powder or cornstarch. As you may suspect, when an airbag deploys, you may breathe in chemicals, powders, dust or smoke. These may irritate your nasal cavity. 

While nose damage may seem minor compared to other types of injuries, you cannot ignore your nasal health. Therefore, following any car crash, you should seek emergency medical care to determine if you have sustained a serious injury.

  3. I cannot thank Brad and the entire Kammholz Rossi team enough. I am so glad that I made the decision to have Brad represent me. I received an injury at work that would be a life changing event for me and my family. I needed to find an attorney that would look out for me and my family. After meeting with a few law firms I chose Brad and his firm. Brad was truly concerned with my injury and what was best for me and my family. Too many of the law firms I met with were only concerned with what they could get from a settlement. Brad is truly concerned with what is best for you. He will listen to all of your thoughts and concerns, and advise you on what actions would be best. Trust is a very important part of a relationship in a legal action. I trusted Brad and his firm. I always knew that Brad truly was looking out for what was best for me and my family. You will not regret having Brad and his entire firm represent you. Everyone there is very pleasant, friendly, casual and yet professional. Their approach helps reduce the stress and tension that comes with a bad situation. Over the twenty two months that Brad represented me, we developed a friendship. I consider Brad a friend and look forward to continuing that friendship for a long time. On behalf of me and my family we cannot thank-you enough for everything that you and your firm have done for us. Truly the best decision made in a bad situation.
