Cosmetic Surgery Negligence Claims
The public attitude towards cosmetic procedures, such as liposuction and nose reshaping, has changed dramatically over the last decade. Sadly, as the popularity of this type of procedure rises, so too does the number of negligence cases.
Those who carry out cosmetic procedures and beauty treatments have a duty of care to ensure your safety and well-being. This responsibility cannot be taken lightly, as ultimately, surgical errors can have long-lasting and traumatic effects.
Claims for Unsuccessful Procedures
Not only can claiming compensation for negligent treatment help you get your life back to normal as soon as possible, but successful claims can also draw attention to poorly skilled or unqualified organisations. This means your claim can prevent other people going through such an appalling experience.
Case Study: Look what he’s done to my face: Woman suing plastic surgeon for £54m tells court he ‘played God’ with her life. The claimant finally recieved a sum in the region of 6 million pounds!
In this case the patient had consulted the Defendant, Mr Fourie, about reshaping her nose and the dark circles under her eyes. Mr Fourie recommended radical surgery in the form of a face-lift which left her with severe nerve damage to the right hand side of her face.
Each case turns on its own facts, this award is not the norm for surgery gone wrong and was exceptionally high: £80,000 related to the pain and suffering both physically and psychologically caused by the injury, the remainder (significantly reduced from the initial amount of £66 million claimed) relates to a claim for loss of earnings from the Claimant’s business as the Claimant was an exceptionally high achiever running her own IT consultancy business prior to the botched surgery.
There are lessons to be learnt from this case which that surgeons should not play God and remember their duty of care to the patient. However, it is not necessarily a worry for surgeons who diligently follow the duty of care that is expected by this industry standard. (Source: Daily Mirror)
