How do I start a cosmetic surgery claim for compensation?
The first step if you feel that you have been harmed by negligence cosmetic surgery is to speak to our expert Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors Belfast
You are also advised to take photos early on showing what has happened and at stages throughout the healing process, as these may support your case.
You should also seek medical help from your doctor or hospital. Keep records of any expenses that are involved so that these can be included in your claim.
If you ask us to represent you, we will start by obtaining your medical records. We will advise the insurer for the organisation that performed the procedure that you intend to bring a claim, provide them with evidence of your injuries and ask them whether they will admit liability.
We will also ask a medical expert to examine you and provide a report on the extent of the harm that you have suffered. Where liability is admitted, we will use this as well as the amount of your financial losses to negotiate the amount of your compensation payment.
If liability is not admitted or the amount offered is too low, we will prepare the strongest possible case for court, ensuring you have our full support throughout.
