We represent victims for cosmetic surgery compensation claims, as they usually fall within the scope of the medical negligence work that we carry out.
And with cosmetic procedures growing in popularity in recent years, we have seen an increase in the numbers of claims for personal injury compensation that we’ve taken forward.
What may be understood to be a simple and straightforward procedure could leave a victim needing months – or even years – of corrective work. This can cost thousands of pounds and leave patients suffering with serious pain, suffering and loss of amenity, and this is something that we can help people with.
Representation for cosmetic surgery compensation claims
We can offer No Win, No Fee representation for cosmetic surgery compensation claims. Our medical negligence lawyers can help when it comes to NHS cases and cosmetic matters whereby procedures have been undertaken on a private basis.
The same duty of care is owed by surgeons and practitioners no matter the reasons for the treatment that’s administered. In terms of private matters that patients elect for, the advice that must be given should be robust, and patients must be able to fully understand the risks that they could face. There have been many instances where it’s the advice about what can go wrong that’s the issue, and this is something that people can make a claim for.
We assess potential claims on a case-by-case basis, and then we can confirm whether it’s something that we can take forward for you. Whether it’s a mistake, a lack of advice, a lack of aftercare, or the incorrect treatment at any stage of a cosmetic process, we may be able to help you.
The impact on victims
When it comes to how we assess and value cosmetic surgery compensation claims, we look carefully at how patients are affected by what has happened.
A simple ‘nose job’ as they’re often referred to could lead to multiple operations that could be spread over several years. Having more and more surgery in one area can also increase the chances of further complications and can only make matters worse in some cases. And whether it’s surgical technique or a lack of advice that has landed you here, compensation for the pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused can be significant.
Losses and expenses claims can be huge as well. We would expect that a cosmetic provider would meet the costs of any additional work that’s needed, but this isn’t always the case. You may also understandably lose faith in the original provider and decide to have revision procedures elsewhere.
The costs of additional surgery that’s required as a direct result of the negligence can form as part of a claim for compensation. We can also look at other losses and expenses, like lost earnings from time off work, or the costs of travel to and from appointments and even medication costs. It’s all about putting you back in the financial position you would have been in had the negligence have not occurred, and then recovering compensation for the pain and suffering as well.
Advice for cosmetic surgery compensation claims
We can represent victims who make cosmetic surgery compensation claims with us on a No Win, No Fee basis.
One thing we need to check, aside from the prospects of success, is whether the opponent has the insurance or funding to meet a claim. It’s always worth patients checking the insurance positions of cosmetic treatment providers they use prior to going ahead with anything, as it can become problematic where no insurance is in place.
