Mistakes can be made even when you or your private health insurers are paying privately for your medical treatment and our specialist team of clinical negligence solicitors are experienced in handling claims against private consultants and hospitals.
Cosmetic treatment is an area of private treatment which has become increasingly popular in recent years; however negligence can still arise during procedures that are not necessarily undertaken to improve health. Although most people are happy with the results of their treatment, cosmetic surgery and treatments can go wrong and lead to complications. This can be due to the negligence of the surgeons or private clinics. We provide support to many clients undergoing this distressing and stressful experience.
Cosmetic surgery has become increasingly popular in recent years, with over 30,000 cosmetic surgery procedures now being carried out every year in the UK.
Unsurprisingly there has also been an increase in the number of claims being made against cosmetic surgeons and private healthcare clinics where the surgery has been carried out negligently.
Whilst most people are happy with the results of their surgery, cosmetic surgery can and does go wrong, and the affects of negligent cosmetic surgery can be very distressing and stressful. It affects your appearance, which in turn can affect your self-confidence and self-esteem, may lead to time off work, and can have a devastating effect on your personal life.
At OH Parsons our team of clinical negligence solicitors have experience of dealing with all sorts of cosmetic surgery claims including nose surgery, breast enlargement and reduction surgery, tummy tucks, liposuction, ear correction, female genital surgery, and cosmetic dentistry.
All surgery has recognised risks of complication, such as bleeding and infection, but if you have been the victim of cosmetic surgery that has gone wrong, or are concerned that the treatment or surgery you have received has been carried out negligently, our clinical negligence solicitors at O H Parsons & Partners will be able to advise you of your options, and we may be able to obtain compensation for you.
