Cosmetic Surgery Claims

There’s absolutely no risk involved in inquiring about your position, or your claim, so it pays to speak with an expert. Ultimately, the only time you’ll end up paying for legal costs is if your case is successful – and even then you will only ever pay an agreed percentage of damages as a contribution to costs.

There is a time limit to make a claim, however, so it’s best to act as quickly as possible. Normally you have three years from the date of your treatment or from the date you realised your condition was a result of your treatment. If you were under the age of 18 when you received the treatment, you’ll have three years from your 18th birthday to make a claim.

How much will my claim cost?

All cosmetic surgery cases taken on by Hudgell Solicitors are handled on a no win no fee basis. This means that you will not have to pay any money up front and there will be no financial risk if your case is unsuccessful.

If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will be agreed before your case is carried out.

    What can compensation pay for?

    Choose to make a cosmetic surgery claim with Hudgell Solicitors, and we can help you secure compensation that will make your ongoing recovery that bit easier. Depending on the severity of your pain, injuries or emotional trauma, you could be entitled to a substantial settlement sum that can help to cover the cost of loss of earnings, remedial and corrective treatment, and any other expenses which you’ve incurred as a direct result of negligence or error on behalf of your cosmetic surgeon.

    When you make a claim with us, we’ll carry out a complete assessment of your case on a no win no fee basis, so you won’t pay a penny upfront to begin the process. We’ll review the circumstances of your claim to decide on an appropriate settlement sum, and fight on your behalf to secure maximum compensation for any pain, injury or dissatisfaction you’ve suffered.

    Can I claim cosmetic surgery compensation for non-surgical treatments?

    Many of the most popular forms of cosmetic treatments are non-surgical, making it possible to change your appearance without a full surgical procedure. From Botox injections and chemical peels to laser treatments, microdermabrasion and dermal fillers; there are a growing number of readily available non-surgical procedures that can have a dramatic impact on your physical appearance, and these continue to prove very popular.

    Sadly, a lack of concrete regulation means that mistakes are much more common in non-surgical treatments, placing you at a greater risk of pain, injury or unsatisfactory results. Whether a procedure is carried out by an inexperienced consultant, faulty or unsterile equipment is used, or medical records aren’t reviewed prior to treatment; the complications of non-surgical treatment can be severe — so you’re entitled to make a claim if fault falls with the practitioner.

    To find out if you’re eligible to claim compensation for non-surgical cosmetic treatment, get in touch today for a free consultation.

    What are the risks of cosmetic surgery?

    Like any medical procedure, cosmetic surgery has many risks which can impact on your physical appearance and overall health, and your practitioner should make you aware of these potential complications before surgery.

    Depending on the type of procedure, it could take months for you to recover fully, and the exact rehabilitation period should be outlined by your doctor. During this period you should receive a high standard of aftercare and support, helping you to make a full recovery whilst limiting the risk of further complications like infections and scarring.

    In cases where complications arise and issues don’t heal naturally over time, you could be left with permanent health problems or unattractive results. If this is the case, it’s likely that your surgeon didn’t conduct the procedure with enough due care and diligence, or else failed to provide the appropriate aftercare needed to guarantee a successful recovery.
