Claims for an infection after plastic surgery

In a world where we are constantly confronted with body image it’s not hard to see why many people look towards plastic surgery as a way of making changes to parts of their body that they might not be happy with. Plastic surgery is starting to become increasingly popular in the UK and as a result the techniques are becoming safer and increasingly efficient – meaning that you have a shorter rehabilitation time and can generally get back in action in next to no time.

Although the best precautions are always taken to ensure that you are treated well when you undergo plastic surgery, this is not always the case and if you find that you have been the victim of an infection after careless plastic surgery then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation to cover your costs.

What type of infection could I sustain?

In general you can sustain an infection in any area where you have undergone plastic surgery. You could end up dealing with a minor or major infection depending on the extent of your injury and this could be the case of a series of antibiotics, or unfortunately in more serious consequences further surgery and treatment. Regardless of the situation if this has been sustained through negligence then you could look to claim.

Where could I look to make a claim for compensation?

You can make a compensation claim in any situation where you feel that you have been the victim of negligence, some common situations where this might occur include:

·         Claims for mistakes during the surgical procedure

·         Claims for errors made during the rehabilitation process

·         Claims for a failure to provide adequate medication

·         Claims for a failure to identify infections or potential problems

·         Claims for mistakes made in the preliminary stages.
