Botox Compensation Claims Solicitors
Injections of Botox (also known as botulinum toxin) relax the muscles in your face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines like crow's feet and frown lines. Patients can also have Botox injections on other parts of the body, such as their underarms.
This is a temporary procedure which only lasts for three to four months. Depending on the clinic and the area being treated, Botox injections can cost anywhere upwards of £100 in the UK.
For many people, Botox injections are a necessary form of treatment for a variety of different health conditions. But for many others, Botox is a cosmetic procedure that gives people a feeling of self-confidence they may otherwise lack.
So, when Botox patients fall victim to medical negligence, this can have particularly devastating consequences on the patient’s mental wellbeing.
If you, or someone close to you, have experienced avoidable harm after your Botox specialist acted inappropriately prior to, during or after your Botox injections procedure, then you could be entitled to compensation.
All patients are owed a duty of care from medical professionals. If you believe that you might have experienced mental, physical, emotional or financial harm as a result of Botox injection negligence, then you are not alone.
With the right solicitor on your side, you can begin to understand what your next steps should be.
