Comestic Surgery Compensation
Cosmetic surgery is big business, both in private clinics and the NHS, as people become more aware of what can be done to make them look and feel better about themselves. Unlike other areas of medical treatment, cosmetic surgery is not as tightly regulated and sometimes the drugs, procedures and implants used are not as rigorously tested as they should be.
Consequently, things can sometimes go wrong and leave patients unhappy with the results of their treatment. In the worst cases, patients even end up with permanent scarring, serious injuries or nasty infections.
If you have had cosmetic surgery that has gone wrong, you could be a victim of medical negligence. If so, you may be able to claim compensation for any physical and mental suffering and for any financial costs you have incurred as a result. The solicitors at BRR Law, in Scunthorpe, North Lincolnshire are experts in the law of medical negligence by cosmetic surgeons and can advise you on whether you have a valid claim as well as seeking compensation on your behalf.
