    Claiming compensation for breast enlargement surgery error


    Claiming compensation for breast enlargement surgery error

    For many women, having a small bust can be something they cannot live with. It can make them feel inadequate and affect their levels of self-confidence. As a result, a number of women elect to have breast enlargement surgery each year. This involves increasing the size of the bust by one or more cup sizes, depending on how small the individual was to begin with and what size she would like to achieve.

    While the vast majority of these operations go smoothly, there is the potential for any surgical procedure to go wrong. Some women have suffered complications as a consequence of having breast enlargement surgery and in some of these cases there is evidence of negligence that could lead to a compensation claim. If you have evidence that the procedure itself was negligent in some way, or you experience problems with your implants, you may have cause to bring a no win, no fee* claim against the surgeon or others involved. Another example is not receiving enough information prior to the surgery taking place; for example you may not be made aware of any of the potential side effects or complications that could happen during or after the operation.

    Could you claim compensation if this surgery went wrong?

    If you have cause to believe your procedure went wrong or affected you in an adverse way, you can seek advice about compensation. This may not just cover medical and physical distress or problems – it can also cover mental ones as well. Suffering as a result of negligence in a procedure is just as harrowing as going through the physical changes and problems that can arise. Make sure you seek professional advice so you know whether you could bring such a claim. It will help you understand the situation you are in and what is possible in terms of compensation.
