Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong – Can I Make A Compensation Claim?
The main aim of cosmetic surgery is to satisfy our vanity and hopefully leave the surgery looking and feeling better than ever before. That is the plan anyway; however it can sometimes go drastically wrong. If you have gone in for a cosmetic procedure and it went wrong, there may be grounds to make a compensation claim in Symonds Yat. There are some criteria you will have to meet before you start your claim for compensation.
One of the main criteria of making any type of claim for compensation is that the injury occurred within the last three years. It is important to think back to your cosmetic surgery procedure and if it was longer than this, you won’t be entitled to make a claim. The quicker you take action therefore, the better!
It is imperative that the negative results of your cosmetic surgery were caused by the surgeon. You should think back to all of the information you were provided with during your consultation. Did the surgeon warn you of any potential risks? Or did he tell you there were not any? If it is the latter and the surgery went wrong, there are definitely grounds to make a compensation claim in Symonds Yat. As with any type of claim, it must have been caused by someone else to have any possible hope of success.
In addition, you will have to be able to provide evidence to support your claims as these are necessary in order for success. Evidence is required by the solicitor and this may come in the form of photographs and/or medical records. You may be able to call upon the assistance of other surgeons who were present at the time and can act as a witness. The more evidence the better and the sooner you can prepare this, the quicker the compensation claim in Symonds Yat will be able to be resolved.
