Making a claim for cosmetic surgery compensation
Cosmetic surgery is growing ever popular in the UK, with more and more options becoming available to the general public. These range from Botox, to breast enlargements, tummy tucks, and liposuction.
However, not every procedure goes to plan and can result in complications, ranging from minor to extremely serious. Often an injury caused by botched surgery can severely impact on your quality of life and cause problems to your health, now and in the future. If you have suffered following cosmetic surgery, you could potentially be entitled to compensation for the distress and suffering it has caused you. Let us guide you through the process and help you claim the compensation you deserve.
Who can make a claim?
Cosmetic surgery is not as regulated as other forms of healthcare and some practitioners may be more skilled and/or competent than others. Whether you have had Botox, dental work or augmentation surgery if the procedure goes wrong, and it is a result of negligence on the surgeon’s part, you are entitled to claim for compensation.
What is meant by negligence?
When you undergo any kind of any medical procedure, the professional charged with your care is under a duty of care to provide you with a reasonable level of treatment. If they do not do this, resulting in an injury, they can be held to account for their negligence.
How to claim
To be successful in your claim, you’ll be required to prove two distinct elements:
It needs to be shown that the healthcare professional failed to carry out their responsibilities to you. This is referred to as breaching their duty of care.
The second element to prove is that the initial fault caused your injury and for you to be in the position you now find yourself.
