cosmetic surgery claims

Cosmetic surgery procedures are becoming more common, so it is not surprising that the number of claims against cosmetic surgeons is increasing.

Lees Solicitors are experienced in successfully handling these claims, supporting patients throughout the process and working hard to ensure adequate compensation is awarded.

when can you claim?

There are two common complaints we hear from clients that may give rise to a cosmetic surgery claim.

The first is that they were not warned about the risks associated with the procedure before committing to it. A surgeon is duty bound to provide their patients with all the necessary information so that they can make informed decisions about whether or not to proceed.

If you were not given this opportunity and subsequently developed complications, you may be eligible for compensation.

The second problem patients encounter occurs when the results of their operation fall below the standard that could have been reasonably expected through poor surgical technique.

Before any cosmetic surgery procedure, the patient and surgeon should outline what the outcome of the work will be, and if this does not happen as promised then the patient may feel compelled to make a claim.

how lees can assist you

Whatever the circumstances, our experience tells us that many cosmetic surgery clients suffer serious emotional problems when a procedure does not go to plan, further eroding their self-perception. Our staff are able to discuss such sensitive issues with you in confidence.

In many cases, five-figure damages have been recovered for clients to compensate them both for the poor physical outcome and subsequent psychological issues caused.

Do you think it is a good case?

It is hard to assess the merits of a case fully before we have seen the relevant medical records and, if necessary, seen the reports from independent experts.  Our usual procedure is to consider the facts given to us by the client and then decide whether we are able to take the enquiry any further.  We would then review it again once the medical records and any other documents or reports are to hand, and indeed, will keep the merits of the case under review throughout the case.

How long will it take?

Investigation of a case usually takes between 18m-2yrs, although more complex cases can take longer. Much depends on how quickly the hospitals etc provide the medical records and then on what the waiting list of the experts are like, and whether you need to be seen by more than 1 expert.
