Claims for Cosmetic Surgery—Focus on Healing and Recovery, We’ll Fight for Your Rightful Compensation

Cosmetic surgery whilst usually always planned, is not always a choice motivated by vanity. Sometimes cosmetic surgery can be offered on the NHS as a result of burns or as a result of an accident. Quite often though, patients do opt to have cosmetic surgery for purely cosmetic reasons. Regardless of the reasons for undergoing cosmetic surgery, it is your right to expect the highest standards of care and improvements as a result of cosmetic surgery.

Our team has a great deal of experience in dealing with negligence in cosmetic surgery. As such, they are able to use their experience to assist you in your claim for medical negligence. It is our aim to investigate claims of cosmetic surgical negligence to prevent further avoidable errors during this type of surgery.

Can I claim compensation for botched cosmetic surgery?

If you or a family member have undergone cosmetic surgery which has caused you unnecessary long-term health problems or trauma, then O’Hare Solicitors can help.

You expect when you have elective cosmetic surgery that such intervention will improve or restore your body. You do not expect to have further injury or trauma caused, or for that surgery to result in further scarring or degradation of your physical appearance.

If you or a family member have undergone cosmetic surgery which has left you with a permanent health issue or injury, O’Hare Solicitors can advise you about your next steps.

We use independent medical experts to review your case and determine whether or not you may have a case and if you are entitled to compensation.

What are the different types of cosmetic surgery negligence which can occur?

Cosmetic surgery by its very nature offers the possibility of hope and improvement. However, like any surgery, it carries risks and problems. Whilst this is the case, these risks are sometimes avoidable if correct procedures are followed. In the event where negligence occurs and medical staff act inappropriately.

Some of the following longterm problems can arise:

  • Scarring
  • Asymmetry
  • Numbness
  • Furtherrequirement for treatment

What about complications after cosmetic surgery?

To recognise if you have a case for medical negligence as a result of cosmetic surgery, it is useful to know what negligence looks like.

Cosmetic surgery negligence can result where you receive care which is below the standard which is expected by the medical profession which is caring for you. If such medical treatment worsens your medical condition causing injury or deterioration in your health, you may be entitled to compensation.

Complications which you suffer as a result of cosmetic surgery can cause longterm health problems and may result in the need for further corrective surgery which can cause you unnecessary physical and mental suffering. At O’Hare Solicitors we are here to help you not only receive compensation for your injury, but also that you get the opportunity to rectify the problems caused.

Our medical experts can investigate yourcircumstances and assist with putting together a strong case for cosmeticsurgery malpractice. Speak to our experienced lawyers today for advice onwhether you are entitled to compensation.

I couldn’t recommend Andrea Bell enough, as a first time house buyer I was pretty clueless to the whole process. Andrea guided me through, responded to my emails extremely quickly put my mind at ease and didn’t make me feel silly with all my questions. She made a process that could have been very stressful very easy. Thank you!

— Zara Millar

If I could rate Andrea any higher than 5 stars I would. Andrea Bell helped me with the sale and purchase of my new home. Andrea was fabulous to work with, she was never too busy to answer any questions I had and kept me up to date throughout. She went over and beyond working tirelessly to ensure I completed and get into my new home during these challenging times. I can't thank her enough for all of her help. I would have no hesitation in working with Andrea again in the future and would recommend her to everyone for any conveyancing needs!

— Robyn Atcheson

Myself and my young daughter were recently in a car accident and subsequently put in contact with O’Hare Solicitors. Naill O’Hare dealt with personal injury claims for both of us. Naill could not have made the process any easier, taking all the necessary steps and keeping in contact with me at every stage. Even during the recent lockdown situation Niall took the time to contact me with updates whilst working remotely. Naill was very helpful and professional throughout the entire process and negotiated great settlements for both of us in an extremely timely manner. I would have no hesitation in using Niall and O’Hare Solicitors again and would highly recommend to all.

I cannot recommend Andrea Bell and O'Hare Solicitors highly enough. My husband and I used Andrea for both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. Although our intended house purchase fell through, and we had to start again looking for a new home, Andrea pulled it all together for us and kept us focused through all the turmoil. Andrea is also the reason that today, coming out of lockdown we are in our new home 3 months. She worked tirelessly to get contracts signed, funds confirmed and keys exchanged while every company was shutting down and the country was going into lockdown. A true professional.

— Avril McDowell

Can't Thank Andrea Bell and Gemma White enough for the help and guidance they have given me during the purchase of my first home. Professional and quick to reply to messages and answer any questions, they made the process easy. Would recommend to anyone seeking a conveyancing service.

A professional team on top of their game who will take you by the hand and guide you through the legal system and achieve the best outcome for you the client. I have used many local law firms for various reasons and found Colm Owens and his colleagues to be leagues ahead, totally transparent easily contactable and always deal with you in a friendly down to earth manner but not afraid to show their teeth when the pressures on in a court of law. Would highly recommend if you want someone in your corner with both guts and integrity.

— Sam Davidson

Absolutely without doubt the best legal service I have received over the years. Andrea Bell provides a flawless guidance that will easily meet and exceed anyone’s expectations. Purchasing a property through the turbulent past few months, Andrea went above and beyond to steady the process. I can wholeheartedly recommend O’Hare and indeed Andrea.

Andrea Bell was our solicitor who dealt with both the sale of our old home and purchase of our new home.
