Medical Malpractice and Plastic Surgery

Medical Malpractice and Plastic Surgery

faceliftChanging your appearance is not something you just decide to do one day, it takes a lot of thought and a lot of money. It is not a easy decision but when you do get to the point of saying yes and you trust the decision in the hands of your plastic surgeons. You expect them to take great care. But if that trust is broken you may be ready to take them to court and try to right what they have done wrong.
There are many different kinds of damages in a medical malpractice case that may have occurred including but not limited to 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.
What can you do to protect yourself?

1. Make sure you trust your doctor and they have reliable sources
2. Follow up with a 2nd opinion
3. Contact a lawyer as soon as possible
4. What could you potentially recover in a medical malpractice lawsuit?

1. Past and future pain and suffering
2. Mental/Emotional suffering
3. Future medical bills
4. Past medical bills

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.
