Will I have to pay to make a cosmetic surgery claim?
We believe in justice for all. That means we won't ever ask you to pay money out of your own pocket, and we will only get paid a fee if we win the compensation you deserve. Most customers tell us they prefer the peace of mind this gives them, which is why we handle around 98% of cases as No Win No Fee claims.
Will I have to have a medical for my cosmetic surgery claim?
That all depends on the type of problem you have been left with. If you wanted your nose reshaping, for example, and the new shape is not the one you agreed to, then a doctor's opinion might not be needed. On the other hand, if a cosmetic procedure has been botched, we might want you to see a doctor to get evidence of how much damage has been done, and whether or not it can be fixed.
Will I have to go to court for a cosmetic surgery claim?
In the vast majority of cases, we handle cosmetic surgery claims by dealing directly with the cosmetic surgery clinic and their insurers. In this case, you wouldn't need to go to court. In fact, in many cases you don't even have to come to a Claims Direct office, as we are happy to deal with many of our clients by phone, email and post.
What can I claim for?
If you have been left with cosmetic damage or physical injuries as a result of botched cosmetic surgery, your claim could include all of these things:
- Pain and suffering
- Psychological trauma
- Further cosmetic surgery
- Medical treatment
- Loss of earnings
We never underestimate the terrible effect that botched cosmetic surgery can have on your life. So if you have suffered pain, injury and embarrassment from a cosmetic procedure that went wrong – or even if you weren't properly warned about the after-effects of surgery – you may be entitled to claim compensation against the surgeon.
What sort of beauty cosmetic surgery errors can I claim for?
Most cosmetic surgeons are highly trained and highly skilled. Even so, everyone can make mistakes, and when that happens during cosmetic surgery or plastic surgery, the results can be devastating for the patient. We often see claims for mistakes during beauty treatments by unqualified therapists, but also for errors in these procedures by qualified cosmetic surgeons:
- Breast implants
- Penis enlargement
- Tummy tucks
- Gastric bands
- Nose reductions
When things go wrong with these and other cosmetic surgery treatments, the results can threaten your health as well as your looks. That's because in addition to unattractive results, you can also be left to deal with:
- Chronic pain
- Dangerous implants
- Serious infections
- Nerve damage
So if your cosmetic surgery doesn't look good, or has left you injured or unwell, you may be entitled to make a No Win No Fee claim for compensation. Talk to one of our friendly advisors now on 0800 175 7900.
