Cosmetic Surgery Negligence Solicitors Manchester
In the last decade, the popularity of cosmetic surgery in the UK has increased dramatically. With more and more people undergoing procedures, the incidences of bad practice have increased too.
Non-surgical treatments, such as botox injections, chemical peels and laser hair removal can be legally carried out by anyone without formal training or qualifications. Unfortunately though, if performed incorrectly, these treatments can result in a range of potentially serious complications.
If you have had cosmetic surgery that has gone wrong and you believe it was caused by mistakes or negligence on the part of the practioner, then you have the option to make a claim for compensation.
Negligence can occur when a clinical mistake or medical accident during your procedure has been caused by the incompetence of a doctor, cosmetic surgeon, cosmetic practitioner or cosmetic clinic.
Medical negligence can result in serious problems for patients, such as pain, permanent mutilation and, in some cases, the onset of wider health issues.
Sheldon Davidson Solicitors can help you claim compensation if you’ve suffered as a result of substandard treatment.
We will swiftly construct your claim and pursue it in court if necessary. Our aim is to secure a high amount of compensation for you as quickly as possible, in order for you to have corrective surgery if you wish.
What constitutes a cosmetic surgery negligence claim?
Poor or bungled cosmetic surgery is a form of medical negligence and, as such, compensation claims have to be made on the grounds of negligence.
You are not able to make a claim if the surgery was carried out properly but you are unhappy with the aesthetic result. In the vast majority of cases, there has to be an element of technical error – and this has to be confirmed by a qualified medical expert.
Mistakes made before and after the procedure can also have serious consequences. In some cases, you may be able entitled to compensation if the risks of the operation were not explained to you beforehand. If substandard aftercare hindered your recovery or negatively affected the results of the procedure, you can make a claim on those grounds.
What can I claim for?
The court takes your pain and suffering into account, but that is not all.
The cost of any corrective treatment you’ve had to undergo should be factored into your claim, and if you’ve had to take any time off work as a result of the negligent surgery, you should be fully reimbursed for your loss of earnings.
