Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claims

Have you experienced a plastic surgery injury that came as a result of your practitioner, doctor or surgeon being negligent? If so, it means that you’ve experienced a personal injury that wasn’t your fault so you have a right to claim compensation for the accident.

Here at 1Solicitors, we understand that an injury deriving from a cosmetic surgery procedure can not only affect your appearance but your self-confidence and long-term health, too.

That’s why we have an expert team of cosmetic surgery solicitors to provide 24/7 support throughout your case and fight for the compensation that you deserve.

Causes of plastic surgery negligence claims

Because there are so many forms of cosmetic surgery procedures, you may be confused as to whether or not you’re able to make a plastic negligence surgery claim.

Amongst some of the most common compensation claims include injuries from:

  • Breast enlargements or reductions
  • Botox and brow lifts
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Face or neck lifts
  • Gastric band surgery
  • Liposuction
  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty)

If you’re wondering about whether you’re eligible to make a claim, we recommend that you explore your options with one of our professional cosmetic surgery lawyers.

Who can make cosmetic surgery claims?

If you’ve undergone plastic surgery within the past three years which resulted in an injury, you are entitled to make a cosmetic surgery claim.

You’re also able to make a claim if you were not fully informed about the risks of the procedure you were having done, you didn’t get the appropriate aftercare or your procedure wasn’t carried-out to the highest standard.

Establishing liability for cosmetic negligence claims

All medical professionals have a duty to ensure that their clients are safe when completing a cosmetic surgery procedure as an accident could cause long-term damage to their health, appearance and well-being.

This means that if you’ve suffered with a cosmetic surgery injury that wasn’t your fault, it’ll be the person who carried out the procedure who is liable for the accident.

You’ll need these details when making a cosmetic surgery compensation claim as the individual or company involved will be required to take part in the case.

What do I need to start my cosmetic surgery compensation claim?

You will need photographic evidence of your injuries (if applicable), along with details of your treatment and the medical professional who performed it.

Can I claim compensation if I experience side-effects from the cosmetic surgery?

If the practitioner who performed the treatment didn’t inform you of the potential side-effects before carrying it out, this may mean that you’re eligible to claim.

How much can get for cosmetic surgery claims?

The amount that you can be awarded when proceeding with cosmetic surgery compensation claims depends on the severity of your injury and the financial impact that it’s had on your life.

There are three types of compensation that you may be eligible to claim for. These are:

  • Physical injuries: If a physical injury has been caused, such as scarring on the face or nerve damage, you may be entitled to claiming this type of compensation.
  • Psychological damage: Often the most traumatic things about a cosmetic surgery negligence claim, you may be able to claim for psychological damage that came as a result of the injury.
  • Expenses: If you’ve had to pay for corrective surgery or other treatment costs as a result of the surgeon’s negligence, you may be entitled to receiving compensation for your expenses.
