Most clinical negligence claims involve breast surgery, tummy tucks, face lifts, liposuction and reshaping. The amount of any claim will depend on several factors such as the type of surgery, the cost and the degree of correction required.
Usually when a problem occurs, a reputable surgery will offer to rectify the problem at no cost. However, patients have often lost confidence particularly if the original surgery is very badly performed. It's at this point that most people will start looking for a solicitor or compensation company to make a claim. If you need to make a claim for cosmetic surgery compensation in Swindon or other towns in Wiltshire read on.
Finding a good solicitor to take your claim forward can be difficult if you don't know what questions to ask. This article sets out to explore how to find a cosmetic surgery claim solicitor. Initially you will want to do a Google search for solicitors in your area that accept cosmetic surgery claims.
Once you have a short list of possible candidates it's time to narrow down your selection to two or three potential solicitors. The first thing I look for when evaluating any local service is their reviews. However, you need to be very cautious in reading reviews as some companies manipulate them by getting visitors to make positive reviews for them. It's usually possible to spot this if you read carefully looking for patterns and poor grammar which can be a signal that the review is written by someone in another country.
Use the reviews to remove the solicitors you are not interested in. Now move on to the next level of checks. Have a thorough read of their site and any case studies or examples they provide. Then compare their costs to see if there are any major differences. Once you have chosen two or three it's time to call them and ask some qualifying questions.
Here are some suggestions to start with. What happens if they do not win your claim? What happens if the surgery closes down or goes out of business during the claim? How many cases have they won and how many have they lost.
