How do I make a cosmetic surgery claim
A claim would usually be brought against an individual cosmetic surgeon when they have failed to perform their duties adequately however mistakes could also have also been made by the attending anaesthetist or nursing staff.
There is usually a three-year time limit after your operation within which you can make cosmetic surgery claims. They can be as complex and demanding as any medical negligence case. The first thing to do is to contact an expert law firm like Access Legal which specialises in these sort of cases.
It is important that your chosen law firm has relationships with the appropriate medical and other experts who can be instructed to assess the right amount of damages you should claim. Their evidence will be absolutely crucial to the success of your claim.
Ideally, you should pursue any complaints procedures before seeking to start legal action. An NHS trust or private hospital or clinic will have their internal process and a written complaint should always be made.
