Breast surgery compensation lawyers

When cosmetic breast surgery goes wrong, the consequences can affect you both physically and emotionally. Rather than seeing the improvements you were expecting, you may be left in severe pain and with disfigurements such as scarring or a lack of symmetry.

Some of the circumstances that may provide grounds for a compensation claim include:

  • Capsular Contracture;

    This is where the layer of scar tissue that the body normally grows around the implant contracts, resulting in the implant being hard or a different shape. This can lead to pain and the implant may need removal/replacement

  • Bleeding into the breast tissue causing swollen, painful breasts

  • Infection which can lead to scarring

  • Visible implants

  • Reduction/loss of nipple sensation

FAQs

By making a cosmetic surgery claim, your settlement will take into account what is referred to as “pain, suffering and loss of amenity”, as well as the cost of any corrective treatment you need, loss of earnings and travel expenses, amongst others.

Where corrective or remedial treatment is necessary and appropriate this will be taken into account in your settlement.

This depends on a number of factors – for example whether the Defendant is denying there was negligence, whether you need remedial treatment, whether the case needs the input of medical experts and whether the case eventually ends up going to court. Your solicitor will be able to assess these factors and let you know roughly how long it will take.

Aside from the above, most simple cases should be dealt with within 18-24 months. Although complicated claims may take longer, it is very rare for any case to take more than three years.
