The car accident that led to the fracture could definitely have a lot to do with the migraines. If you fractured your nose, you may also have had a concussion at the same time, and that brain injury (even when minor) may worsen existing migraines, or possibly bring on new ones. The degree of actual physical damage may not match the degee of headache pain (i.e. you could have a huge headache problem with little structural damage, and vice versa.) Keep working with your doctor, and realize that this may take time to resolve.
