Things You Need to Know About Plastic Surgery Malpractice

Plastic Surgery MalpracticeHow do you know if you have a valid ground for filing a plastic surgery malpractice claim? Can you sue your doctor for medical malpractice if the operation didn't turn out as well as you expected? To know what constitutes a plastic surgery malpractice and to know whether or not you have the right to file a case against your doctor, here are some things that you absolutely need to know.

While plastic surgery only carries a small amount of risk, there is still a slim chance that something can and may go wrong. Even the best plastic surgeons cannot guarantee that you'll get certain results or that the procedure will not have any complications. You can, however, expect that you will be given the highest standard of care before, during and after the procedure.

When to File a Claim for Medical Malpractice

When this standard of care is not met and you end up getting injured in the process, you may have the right to file a plastic surgery malpractice claim. To prove that you have a valid reason for filing a claim, you need to prove the following:

  • A doctor-patient relationship existed
  • The standards of care have not been successfully met
  • You were injured and/or suffered damages
  • Your injury directly resulted from said breach of duty of care

Some of the most common malpractice claims include complications from anaesthesia, errors arising from surgical procedures, errors in the administration of botox and collagen injections, any adverse reactions that resulted from such procedures and wrongful death, among others.

While not every mistake or unmet expectations can be considered as an eligible ground for filing a claim, your surgeon can be held liable for the injuries and damages you sustained if it can be proven that his or her actions deviated from what other surgeon under the same circumstances would have done.

If you sustained any such injuries, you should immediately seek medical attention to determine if the damages can be corrected, document the events, and seek the help of a qualified medical malpractice lawyer to help you build your case.

You have the right to expect a high standard of care and you also have the right to file a malpractice claim if that standards is breached – whether accidentally or intentionally. Fight for your rights.

If you sustained any plastic surgery-related damages and injuries and looking to sue your surgeon, please feel free to contact Remer & Georges-Pierre, PLLC at (305)416-5000 or visit http://www.miami-personalinjurylawyers.com for a free consultation.
