Cosmetic surgery can help improve self-esteem and confidence, and it has become an increasingly popular choice for many people over recent years. However, the cosmetic surgery industry is not as well regulated or carefully managed as the general surgical and medical fields, and while most people will have a trouble free experience every time, there are instances where negligence on the part of the surgeon, a nurse, a cosmetic implant manufacturer, or a cosmetic surgery clinic can make mistakes leading to injury or illness on the part of the patient.
Fortunately, it is possible to submit a compensation claim in those cases where negligence can be proven, and the courts will typically agree that any fair and reasonable financial losses, along with damages for the physical and mental injuries that are suffered, should be paid to the victim.
While it is rare, incorrect procedures may be carried out, and this can leave the victim in a worse condition than before they underwent the procedure. It is important that patients use reputable firms, and doctors with a strong reputation, but even then these mistakes can occur. What’s more, it isn’t always the fault of the surgeon or the doctor that is in charge of the procedure.
There have been well documented cases of implants that have been manufactured to lower than expected standards, and considering how these implants are used, this can lead to serious complications including major illness and injury. Although this might be considered a cosmetic surgery claim, it could also be considered a faulty or dangerous goods claim, and your solicitor will work with you to determine the best approach with the most likely incident of a positive outcome.
The compensation you are entitled to will depend on the error, the injury or illness that you suffer as a result, and any loss or costs that are incurred as a result of the botched work. If you are forced to miss work for any length of time then this compensation figure could total several thousands of pounds, and having an experienced personal injury solicitor on side will help ensure you have the best chance of a successful claim.
