Cosmetic surgery negligence claims come from substandard treatment by your doctor. Types of cosmetic surgery claims include scarring, nerve damage and poor outcomes to corrective procedures.

You undergo cosmetic surgery to improve your looks and self-confidence, not to suffer damage and embarrassment. Laser surgery can burn your skin, while Botox injections may lead to nerve damage, and liposuction to a perforated bowel.

There are plenty more examples of cosmetic surgery claims in medical negligence. If you suffered cosmetic surgery problems, you may be due compensation.

What types of cosmetic surgery negligence qualify you for compensation?

Other types of cosmetic surgery claims include:

  • Facelift problems
  • Eyelid surgery going wrong
  • Tummy tuck claims
  • Cosmetic dentistry negligence

Cosmetic surgery goes wrong, but you can claim compensation.

A cosmetic Procedure to improve your confidence

Cosmetic surgery can be an excellent way to boost your confidence. You are unhappy with some aspect of your body, and after years of hiding it, you decide to take action.

A body issue can result from an accident, be a problem since birth or of a long-term medical condition. A scar on your face, excess body fat you can’t lose or even premature balding are corrected by cosmetic surgery.

Other cosmetic surgery claims

Breast surgery, a neck lift, scar revision and reduction, and eye bag surgery are good examples of confidence-boosting cosmetic surgery. When your cosmetic surgeon, who is a medical professional after all, provides negligent treatment, they are responsible.

Whatever your cosmetic surgery needs, you should not suffer as a result. You should claim compensation to put the botched cosmetic surgery right.

Don’t suffer in silence

You should not suffer in silence. Cosmetic surgery claims give patients a voice to highlight was has happened.

If all you have after cosmetic surgery is pain and embarrassment, then you have a valid compensation claim. The medical negligence is not your fault. Seeking to claim compensation for cosmetic surgery is your right.

Suffering in silence for the rest of your life is not an option. If you are unhappy with the results of your cosmetic surgery, then you deserve redress.

Legal action is the next step when the cosmetic surgeon’s work leaves you in pain and discomfort.

Make a cosmetic surgery negligence claim

As in all medical negligence claims, it is up to you to take any legal action. The damage is done to you or a loved one, and the sooner you launch the cosmetic surgery claims process, the better.

By taking action you will receive the money you need to fix the cosmetic surgery error. You will also be helping to prevent it from happening to other people. Cosmetic surgery negligence can leave people scarred for life, but personal injury claims help fix that clinical negligence.

How personal injury claims work

When you make contact with The Medical Negligence Team, we will call you for a free consultation. At the meeting, our team will listen to your case and outline how the procedure works.

Medical records

The first step is to seek your permission for the solicitors to access your medical records. They will then go through the notes and see exactly what happened and when it happened to you.

Medical records do not lie, and often the cosmetic surgery claim becomes obvious very quickly.

Examination by an independent medical professional

Once the cosmetic surgery solicitors see where the medical negligence lies, they will usually ask you to see a trusted doctor or cosmetic surgeon. The independent medical expert will give you a full examination and confirm your medical negligence claim.

If the medical professional confirms clinical negligence with your cosmetic surgery, the claims process will begin in earnest.

The next steps in the claim compensation process

The next step is for your personal injury solicitors to make contact with the cosmetic surgeon, private clinic or hospital.

They will have a team of solicitors to deal with the compensation for cosmetic surgery. If they admit to your claims, then an agreement on compensation can happen quickly. If there is any dispute, the compensation for cosmetic surgery claim will head to court.

Claiming compensation for cosmetic surgery should not be difficult. The cosmetic surgery negligence is usually obvious, and your scars, medical evidence and expert advice, will support your compensation claims.

What to check before you commit to a cosmetic surgery claim

The first thing to check is that your legal team is approved by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Rogue companies are only in it to make money out of you, regardless of the outcome of the claim.

There are stories of people owing more money than they receive when they claim compensation.

How about the legal fees?

You should not have to pay legal fees when you win a case for cosmetic surgery negligence. Ask the company if they run a No Win No Fee policy? If they do not, you should walk away. A fee agreement should be obvious and not something to discuss later.

No Win No Fee Agreement

A No Win No Fee agreement protects you from exposure to crippling legal fees. Your personal injury solicitors should be confident in your case and advise you on how to win it.

Any fee agreement should include a complete schedule and outline the costs of the claim process from day one.

Financial risk should not be on your shoulders.

How much compensation can you claim?

A compensation claim can be for the £1,000s up to and including more than £1m. Any money won is to pay for fixing the negligent surgery, cover all expenses and any loss of earnings.

Maximum compensation gives you money for pain suffered, inconvenience and all further embarrassment. It will also cover you for treatment in the future and any other cosmetic procedure related to the negligence claim.

The amount of compensation you claim depends on how much is needed to fix the wrongs done to you.

Keep all Receipts

You should keep all receipts for costs in pursuing a cosmetic surgery negligence claim. Everything from doctors’ fees, travels cost, overnight stays, taxis and meals when away from home are included as out-of-pocket expenses.

The receipts are part of your compensation for cosmetic surgery. If you hadn’t suffered cosmetic surgery negligence, then you wouldn’t be out-of-pocket.

Ask your solicitor for advice on all costs.

Are there time limits to a cosmetic surgery claim?

Yes, and you have three years to claim compensation for cosmetic surgery. It is the same time limit for any medical negligence case.

The three years begin from the day you realise you suffered negligent cosmetic surgery. It could be more than three years since you had the medical procedure, but you claim from when the signs became apparent.

It is not unusual for symptoms of negligent medical treatment to come to light after three years. Do not be put off claiming compensation by time limits.
