Have you suffered negligence at the hands of a medical professional while being assessed for cosmetic surgery, undergoing a procedure, or during the recovery process? You might be entitled to claim compensation.
By contacting the cosmetic surgery compensation solicitor team at Healys today you can find out whether you could take legal action. When these treatments and procedures go wrong, the consequences can be traumatic on both a physical and psychological level – don’t just accept it, contact us about it.
Around 30,000 cosmetic surgery procedures are carried out in the UK each year, with breast enlargement, uplift or reduction, tummy tucks, botox, liposuction, face lifts, and rhinoplasty among the most common.
Although the vast majority of procedures will be carried out without serious complication, when negligence occurs – whether as a result of surgical error or post-operative complication – claimants can suffer a range of symptoms, from excessive bleeding or infection to scarring or disfigurement.
Clinicians have a duty to inform patients of all the risks inherent in a procedure, while also allowing a two-week ‘cooling-off’ period before any operations are carried out. Any failures in this regard may constitute grounds for a cosmetic surgery claim.
Furthermore, if the procedure caused unnecessary pain or the results fell short of what had been promised, it may be worth speaking to a cosmetic surgery compensation solicitor about making a claim.
After suffering clinical negligence it is natural to feel distressed, angry, and vulnerable. These emotions might mean that the thought of taking legal action and having to talk about your case causes you stress.
However, if you have a valid and viable claim, we could help you receive compensation for the harm which has been caused to you. Moreover, the settlement could help you undergo corrective surgery to rectify this negligence.
You might also want to have therapy or counselling to help you manage the traumatic fallout, and the cost of this could be covered by the compensation you receive.
