Broken Nose

Do I Have To Pay a Plastic Surgeon For a Broken Nose In a Car Accident?

No. When you break your nose in a car accident, you will probably be surprised to find that your plastic surgeon wants you to pay $8,000-$10,000 upfront for your broken nose. But you do not have to pay your plastic surgeon up-front.

You may also have a facial laceration or cut which may cause a scar and that should also be treated by a plastic surgeon which can cost even more.

Do Plastic Surgeons Accept No-Fault In a Car Accident?

Yes and no. 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! We can get your plastic surgeon to accept no-fault.

We represented many clients who had a broken nose in a car accident and their previous lawyer told them they had to pay the plastic surgeon. These people called us and in every case, we got their plastic surgeon to accept no-fault so our clients did not have to pay the plastic surgeon.

If I Broke My Nose Getting In a Parked Car or Getting Out Of a Parked Car, Will No-Fault Pay To Fix My Nose?

Yes. If your nose was broken while getting in a parked car or getting out of a parked car, No-Fault will pay your plastic surgeon.

We can get your plastic surgeon to accept no-fault so you don’t have to pay any money! Just call 1-800-HURT-911 | 1-800-487-8911 and we will arrange everything for you.

We had several clients who broke their nose when hit in the face by the car door or SUV hatch door. All of these clients received surgery from a plastic surgeon and none of our clients had to pay any money upfront.

What Will Happen If Pay a Plastic Surgeon For a Broken Nose In a Car Accident?

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 by no-fault thousands of dollars 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 a plastic surgeon in advance, No-Fault will reimburse you only a fraction of what you paid!

See more information about getting no-fault to pay for a plastic surgeon to repair your nose.

A broken nose is a fractured bone which is a serious injury so 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 so you don’t have to pay the plastic surgeon until your case settles. The cost of the surgery will be added to the value of your case so you will get that money 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.

This scar was treated by a plastic surgeon paid by no-fault. Our client did not have to pay the doctor anything.
