Cosmetic surgery is very common these days. Given the number of people who have gone under the knife, or wanted to do so, more doctors are motivated to specialise in this field. It pays well. Sadly, it could also go wrong. The results might not be similar to what patients expect.
There are various risks that accompany each surgical process. You might not get the results you have visualised with all the procedures available. However, there are problems that are extremely bad. You might end up with chemical burns, cuts and bleeding, or permanent scars.
There are several possible causes behind these problems. The surgeon might have been negligent when doing the procedure. Simpler procedures like laser hair removal don’t require a surgeon. The person who did the job might not have been competent or did not follow procedure correctly.
Don’t accept apologies
The first thing you will hear from the doctor or representative of the company is an apology. Don’t accept it. Don’t settle for a small amount to correct the problem. Better yet, never speak with anyone from the company until you are with your lawyer.
You should file a complaint, and ask for compensation. At this point, the best thing to do is gather evidence to strengthen your case if you decide to pursue it.
Don’t feel bad about what happened just because you were told it was an accident or they begged for your forgiveness. Accepting their apologies might be deemed as part of the settlement. They could tell the court that you have already accepted their apology. It could be used against you. Worse, if they ask you to sign any documents, don’t do it unless your lawyer is there and has approved it.
You will need the money
One of the reasons people make beauty injury claims is to allow them to move forward with their lives. Correcting botched surgery might cost a lot. For some people, this could even be a reason for them to lose their jobs, or end up with huge financial problems.
The good thing is that you can easily find a lawyer who is up to the job. They will give the services you need in order to get the compensation you deserve.
You can also use the money to start over again. You may not be as capable as you used to be because of the procedure. You should at least get financial compensation out of it. Ask your lawyer about the process and how much compensation you need to file for. Remember to ask for compensation for both the physical and emotional stress that this incident has caused you.
