Can I Sue a Plastic Surgeon?

Millions of cosmetic surgery procedures are performed each year. Generally, these surgeries are performed for personal cosmetic reasons or reconstruction after an accident or injury. What happens if cosmetic surgery yields poor, or even disfiguring results? Many wonder if there are legal rights and laws protecting people in these instances. If you sustained an injury due to medical negligence during a cosmetic procedure, you might have a medical malpractice claim. At Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, our Florida cosmetic surgery medical malpractice attorneys will guide you through your legal options.

Defending Victims of Cosmetic Procedure Injury

How is fault established in a cosmetic surgery lawsuit? Sometimes claims involving elected cosmetic surgery can be difficult. Jurors are often hesitant to award large settlements in these cases when compared to other, non-elective medical procedures. Having an experienced attorney on your side can help override jury prejudice and get you fair compensation.

Do I have a medical malpractice claim? Despite jury bias, there are instances when a malpractice claim is valid. If the surgeon failed to provide you with full disclosure of risk, or if they provided you with inferior or substandard care, they are now guilty of medical malpractice, especially if you sustain an injury as a result.

Other reasons for a cosmetic surgery malpractice claim include:

  • Post-operative infections
  • Negligent injection of drugs
  • Complications from anesthesia
