Grounds for a Plastic Surgery Malpractice Suit
Following through with your decision to have a facelift, nose job, tummy tuck or breast augmentation takes commitment, bravery and money. It isn’t a decision to be made lightly and, when conducted correctly, yield the results you were after to last a lifetime.
But when your cosmetic surgeon doesn’t complete cosmetic procedures correctly to achieve the results you desire, it could be very traumatic. The idea you just shelled out thousands of dollars to improve your appearance, but could be stuck with subpar results the rest of your life, is very stable ground for a lawsuit.
Plastic surgery medical malpractice can be based on issues of disfigurement, emotional distress, nerve damage, excessive scarring and even death. Before undergoing a procedure your surgeon should let you know what your realistic risks will be. If you experience something above and beyond the scope of what can be expected you may have a medical malpractice case.
Medical malpractice cases are extreme complicated and hinge on proving wrong doing or error on the part of the doctor. It is important to have a lawyer who will go the extra mile and who will fight for what you deserve. Make sure your doctor has reliable references and is very trustworthy. If it’s too late, you may be entitled to past and future pain and suffering, emotional suffering and medical expenses.
