Do I Have To Pay For a Broken Nose from a Car Accident?
You were probably surprised to find that your plastic surgeon wants you to pay $8,000-$10,000 upfront for your broken nose. You may also have a facial laceration or cut which may cause a scar and should also be treated by a plastic surgeon and can cost even more.
New York State no-fault insurance will pay for medical treatment but plastic surgeons don’t accept no-fault. That means your plastic surgeon will tell you that you have to pay upfront and then get reimbursed from no-fault. Don’t do it!
If your nose was broken in a car accident or even while getting in a car or getting out of a car, don’t pay your plastic surgeon because you will be reimbursed for thousands less than you paid.
What if you do not have the money to layout until you’re reimbursed a few months later by no-fault? Your personal injury lawyer may tell you to get a lawsuit cash advance “loan” to pay your plastic surgeon. Don’t do it! It can cost you 4 times more when your case settles.
If you pay in advance, No-Fault will reimburse you only a fraction of what you paid!
We can get your plastic surgeon to accept no-fault so you won’t have to pay any money! Just call 1-800-HURT-911 and we will arrange everything for you.

A broken nose is a fractured bone and is a serious injury which means that your car accident case cannot be dismissed pursuant to New York State no-fault law which requires a serious injury in a car accident case.
If you don’t get the treatment you need, you may be left with a disfiguring scar, a crooked nose, difficulty breathing, and other serious problems.
Do You Have a Broken Nose from an Accident Not Involving a Car?
If you were injured in another type of accident and do not have health insurance, we can usually arrange for a plastic surgeon to do the surgery on a lien against your case. The cost of the surgery will be added to the value of your case so you will get that back.
Facial Scars When You Have a Broken Nose
When you break your nose, you may also have a laceration that forms a scar on your nose or face.
This photo was taken of our client who broke her nose when she was hit in the face by a car door. She had a personal injury lawyer but he was unable to get her plastic surgeon to accept no-fault insurance. Her plastic surgeon wanted her to pay $8,000 upfront and she called us. We took her case and immediately got the plastic surgeon to accept her no-fault insurance.
