Plastic Surgery Mistakes Attorneys
There are many different reasons that people might choose to undergo plastic or cosmetic surgery. Some might want to improve their personal appearance. Others may find a cosmetic procedure helpful with relieving a health problem, such as getting a breast reduction to relieve back pain or rhinoplasty to help with a breathing problem.
While most procedures go well, complications have arisen in some cases that have led to catastrophic consequences. It is the surgeon’s responsibility to perform the procedures correctly and to ensure against any ill effects. If you or a loved one has suffered due to a plastic surgery error, you may have grounds for a malpractice claim.
Our lawyers obtained a $1 million award for the death of 25-year-old unmarried mother of two, who died as a result of a botched breast augmentation operation. The award was against the employer of the surgeon, who administered excessive amounts of a numbing agent (Xylocaine) during the operation.
