Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim Solicitors
Our Cosmetic Surgery Claims Solicitors are available if you have recently suffered an injury relating to a cosmetic operation.
In the last decade, cosmetic surgery in the UK has increased dramatically in popularity. With more and more people undergoing operations, the incidences of medical malpractice 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 can result in a range of potentially serious complications.
If you have had cosmetic surgery that has gone wrong because of mistakes or negligence on the part of the practitioner or medical professional, then you have the option to make a Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim.
Medical negligence can result in serious problems for patients, such as pain, permanent mutilation and, in some cases, the onset of wider health issues.
Get in touch today, and our Cosmetic Surgery Claims Solicitors will help you claim compensation if you’ve suffered as a result of substandard care.
We will swiftly construct your claim, provide legal advice through your Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim process, 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 recover financial losses, or have a corrective procedure if you wish.
What constitutes cosmetic negligence?
Poor or bungled cosmetic surgery is a form of medical negligence and, as such, Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claims have to be made on those grounds.
You are not able to make a claim if the operation 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 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 Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim on those grounds. Contact our Cosmetic Surgery Claims Solicitors today for an assessment of your case.
Can I make a Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim against the NHS?
If it can be proven that your cosmetic professional has failed to adhere to a reasonable standard of quality of care you will be eligible to make a claim against them. This applies to both private practitioners and NHS medical staff and surgeons.
It is crucial that the medical practitioner you have chosen to perform the procedure has a valid insurance policy at the time of the operation. Should the professional you wish to claim against not be fully insured, your options for legal recourse may be limited. It is always advisable to research this beforehand.
What are some common surgeries that lead to cosmetic injuries?
Unfortunately, adverse consequences can come from all types of cosmetic procedures. Some of the most common operations that may result in injuries are:
- Breast Implant
- Rhinoplasty (Nose Surgery)
- Rhytidectomy (Face Surgery)
- Plastic Surgery
- Facial Scar Surgery
- Forehead Lift
- Laser Surgery
- Gastric Band Surgery
There are many issues that may derive from a cosmetic procedure, which do not exclusively include surgical errors. A patient may be erroneously recommended an unnecessary or inappropriate procedure. They may also not be clearly informed of the risks, or the alternative options available ahead of the operation.
What can I claim for in a Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim?
The court takes your pain and suffering into account, but that is not all.
The cost of any corrective operations you’ve had to undergo should be factored into your Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim. If you’ve had to take any time off work as a result of negligent care, you should be fully reimbursed for your loss of earnings.
