If you are a victim of plastic surgery gone wrong, you must know that there are legal rights that can assist in your pursuit of justice and compensation. Cosmetic surgeries aim to improve one’s appearance, but when they fail, the outcomes, both physical and emotional, can be severe. At Beregovich Law, we aim to help people impacted by careless cosmetic processes with our skilled legal advice and assistance.

Understanding Your Rights to Cosmetic Surgery Compensation

If cosmetic surgery goes wrong, you can seek compensation for the harm caused. In Florida, people may be able to claim money from a cosmetic surgeon if they experience these types of damages:

  • Medical Bills, Past and Future: Paying for extra treatments and operations needed to fix the procedure.
  • Lost Wages and Loss of Earning Capacity: Compensation for the time you’ve had to take off work to recover.
  • Pain and Suffering and Mental Anguish: This takes into account the unsuccessful surgery’s physical pain and mental anguish.

In order to successfully gain compensation, it is essential to show that the surgeon’s negligence was the main reason for your injury. Typically, this includes demonstrating that their level of care did not meet accepted medical standards.

Navigating Plastic Surgery Malpractice Settlements

When dealing with plastic surgery malpractice settlements, it is essential to understand the medical and legal intricacies that are part of these situations. The idea behind a settlement in such a case is to compensate for any harm caused by an incorrect procedure or action without requiring an extended court process. Significant aspects taken into account are:

  • Liability: establishing that the surgeon’s care and treatment fell below the standard of care
  • Extent of Injury: The extent of your injuries and whether they will last a long time can affect the amount of settlement.
  • Insurance Coverage: The amount of the surgeon’s malpractice insurance can limit the compensation available.

Beregovich Law fights hard to obtain a settlement that accurately shows the depth of your pain and losses.
