Cosmetic Negligence

As procedures become more affordable, many more of us are electing to undergo cosmetic surgery and beauty treatments. Yet all cosmetic and beauty procedures come with risks, particularly surgeries, with common complications ranging from infections and scarring to implant failure or even nerve or organ damage. Unfortunately, these risks have only increased with the growth of the cosmetic treatments market, with serious concerns raised about industry standards and the dangers involved.

While little can make up for the distress caused if something does go wrong during a cosmetic treatment, we are entitled to claim compensation for the injuries and loss we suffer as a result of another person's negligence. Damages can be claimed for the physical and psychological injuries incurred, as well as associated losses and costs, such as for any corrective treatment or procedures we have to undergo and time taken off work to rehabilitate.

At Scotland Claims, our friendly and dedicated staff are recognised experts in personal injury claims. We always strive to exceed the expectations of our clients, providing an effective, professional and personal service. Known as leaders in our specialist practice areas, including cosmetic surgery and beauty treatment claims, our firm continues to grow its reputation and client-base, helping people get the compensation and justice they deserve.

How much compensation for a cosmetic surgery and beauty treatment injury?

How much compensation can be claimed for a cosmetic surgery or beauty treatment injury depends on the nature and severity of the injuries the error caused, as well as the particular circumstances and prevailing medical opinion surrounding the incident that caused it. For example, facial scarring can attract awards of between £1,300 and £74,000, depending on the severity of the injury and age of the injured person. Generally, financial awards seek to compensate the victim for their pain, suffering and the costs attributable to their injury, such as loss of earnings, loss of future earnings, travel costs and any other expenses incurred, such as corrective surgery, as a result of negligent cosmetic surgery or beauty treatment.

Making a cosmetic surgery and beauty treatment negligence claim in Scotland

To make a cosmetic surgery or beauty treatment claim, the injury must have been suffered within the last three years and the result of another person's negligence. Whether or not a mistake was negligent is a key matter when making a cosmetic surgery claim. If compensation is to be awarded, it must be clearer established that the mistake was avoidable (i.e. the treatment received was below the standard that could be reasonably expected of a professional in that area of medicine) and directly caused injury.

The specialist personal injury solicitors at Scotland Claims have vast experience helping clients secure compensation following a beauty treatment or cosmetic surgery mistake or error. We work tirelessly to build a strong claim, gathering evidence and liaising with medical experts on behalf of our clients. We also have excellent negotiating and advocacy skills that allow us to present our clients' claims in the strongest terms to secure them the maximum amount of compensation they are entitled to.

(*)100% Compensation. No Win No Fee

Example: For a Moderate Whiplash Injury compensation claim that was awarded £12,000 as settlement, using a (*)100% Compensation Solicitor like Scotland Claims, you would receive £12,000. Using some of the other big brand Solicitors that charge you 25% of your compensation on top of their success fee, you would receive just £8,400. That's £3,600 LESS!! That's a decent new used car you've just given away for absolutely no reason. (£12,000 - 25% = £3,000 * VAT = £3,600).
