Can I claim for laser skin resurfacing negligence?
All cosmetic procedures including laser skin resurfacing have an element of risk and these risks should be thoroughly explained to you before your laser skin resurfacing procedure.
However, there are occasions when mistakes can be made during the procedure which can cause pain and suffering and sometimes result in long lasting consequences.
As cosmetic laser treatments are largely unregulated many mistakes arise from poorly trained therapists misusing the laser equipment and/or not taking adequate care.
If you’ve received a poor standard of care which has caused you harm, you may be entitled to claim compensation for cosmetic negligence in regard to your laser skin resurfacing procedure.
The first step is to get in touch with us and one of our team of claim experts can conduct a free, confidential, no-obligation consultation with you.
How to Make a Claim
Our team of claim experts will talk with you about what happened and listen to your experience so they can see if a cosmetic surgery claim may be possible.
The information you share with us is always treated confidentially and would only be used by our solicitors in dealing with your enquiry, if your claim is pursued.
To evaluate your claim we will need to know:
- Which clinic/hospital you attended and what date you attended.
- What injuries, illness or harm you have suffered.
- How the clinic/hospital fell short of the expected standard of care.
- Whether you require ongoing treatment or rehabilitation
Once you have started the cosmetic surgery claim process by talking to our medical negligence solicitors and they have established that a potential claim exists, the next stage is for our panel of solicitors to start gathering the evidence needed for a successful claim.
This means gathering the evidence to assist in proving that medical negligence took place and that you have been harmed in some way as a direct result.
We will be with you every step of the way to guide you through the process.
