Cosmetic Surgery Injury Claims in Manchester
Cosmetic surgeons, like other medical professionals, have a duty of care towards the health and safety of their patients. They are meant to prevent cosmetic surgery injury at all costs. This means that if a patient is injured as a result of the cosmetic surgeon’s negligence, then the patient is entitled to make a claim for compensation. This should be done with the assistance of our medical negligence solicitors** for Manchester.
Cosmetic Surgery Negligence
As more and more people are partaking in such procedures, the number of cosmetic surgery claims has risen and may continue to do so until there is a change to the existing regulations. Some of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery include:
- breast augmentation
- skin tightening
- rhinoplasty (nose job)
- otoplasty (ear surgery)
- gynaecomastia (male breast reduction)
- body contouring
As cosmetic surgery has become quite a lucrative industry, there are some practitioners who are carrying out these procedures without the required care and skill. This can result in injuries to their patients (although that is not to say that the best practitioners cannot also be negligent).
Make a Claim for a Cosmetic Surgery Injury in Manchester
The amount of compensation you can claim following botched cosmetic surgery will depend on the seriousness of the injury and the impact it has had on your life, which, depending on the type of procedure, could be quite significant. In addition to compensation for your pain and suffering, you can also claim for any consequential losses such as subsequent medical bills, travel expenses, loss of income and so on.
The range of compensation awards is set down in government guidelines and will usually be paid out paid the negligent practitioner’s insurance company. This is why you should use our experienced personal injury claims solicitors** for Manchester to represent you. They will ensure that you are awarded the maximum entitlement, particularly as some insurance companies seek to limit the amount they have to pay out.
If you would like to make a claim for compensation following botched cosmetic surgery, then you should speak with Accident Claims Manchester as soon as possible. Within three years of the date of the injury. Any claim brought outside this time period may be time-barred under the Limitation Act 1980.
