Expertise in Breast Surgery Compensation Claims
Breast surgery compensation claims are on the rise because breast augmentation has become increasingly popular.
In fact, the most common type of cosmetic surgery in the UK is breast augmentation. Today, around 30,000 people – mainly women, though a growing number of men are having pectoral implants to enlarge their chest. Whether you undergo breast surgery for medical or cosmetic reasons you should feel confident that the operation and post-care will go through at a high standard.
You certainly don’t expect to suffer medical negligence, nor do you go into surgery anticipating you will soon be contacting The Medical Claims Experts for help making an implant compensation claim.
What is Breast Surgery Negligence?
Surgical negligence can occur either before, during, or after a procedure. Pre-op mistakes can occur if a surgeon incorrectly assesses a patient’s suitability for surgery, or if they fail to take into account an existing physical or medical condition. Mistakes can be made by surgical staff or the anesthesiologist during an operation, while inadequate post-care can lead to infection, discomfort, and physical deformity.
A claim for breast implant surgery compensation can result from:
- Blood clotting and hematoma;
- Hardening of breast implants due to contracting scar tissue.
- Loss of nipple sensation;
- Excessive scarring;
- Ruptured implants;
- Post-surgery infection;
- Capsular contracture;
- Nerve damage.
What brings on breast surgery compensation claims
Despite seemingly successful surgery, it’s possible for implants to slip and cause breasts to look lopsided and uneven. Medical negligence can also cause breast implants to rupture. Broken saline implants “deflate” faster than silicone ones, meaning the damage is very obvious.
Implants become more prone to breaking as they age, though the majority of women can safely keep theirs in for 10 to 15 years before having them replaced. If yours ruptures within a few months it may be due to negligence.
Sometimes a compensation claim is raised because a client is unhappy with the results of their breast augmentation. But it might also come to be when they feel they were not sufficiently informed of the hazards associated with the procedure.
This can lead to a client requiring further surgery to obtain the results they want. This even amidst the breast surgery claims, they decide to rely on a medical professional again to perform more surgery, carrying its own potential danger whilst hoping they’ll live up to their duty of care.
The Medical Negligence Experts support both women and men subject to breast reductions as well as implants. All of whom feel the disappointment of those who were responsible for their treatment and care. And whose cosmetic surgery claims aim to cover what has been lost, from travel expenses to loss of earnings. These Britons are more than entitled to compensation for a rightful medical negligence claim process.
How Can We Help?
The Medical Negligence Experts feel that compensation claims are not about pointing the finger of blame for the sake of it. Rather, solicitors seek for the responsible party to acknowledge the pain and distress they caused their patient. Accordingly, they pay for any ongoing treatment or corrective surgery which may be necessary. As well as compensating for the loss of earnings and other expenses the patient would otherwise not have incurred.
