Victims of cosmetic surgery negligence can claim compensation for:-
- Physical and psychological injuries resulting from the negligent cosmetic surgery. Solicitors call this “pain, suffering and loss of amenity”.
- Medical expenses, including the cost of correcting the cosmetic surgery.
- Loss of earnings.
- The cost of care.
- Any other out of pocket expenses.
We will assess the level of compensation you will be entitled to receive and will do our utmost to get you the maximum award.
Compensation for physical and psychological injuries arising from the cosmetic surgery negligence will normally be based on medical evidence in the form of a doctor’s report. Compensation will be awarded for any expenses or financial losses that are incurred as a direct result of the negligent treatment. Victims of cosmetic surgery will often require extensive and expensive treatment to correct the negligent cosmetic surgery and the cost of that treatment on a private basis will be recoverable.
Compensation for the cost of care (or the value of any care provided by friends and family) can also be claimed. Full details do have to be provided together with supporting documents such as invoices and receipts, so it is important that you keep accurate records of your losses.
