Representing Victims of Surgery Malpractice in Florida
Injured During a Cosmetic Procedure?
In today’s day and age, countless individuals have gone under the knife for cosmetic purposes. Whether they are interested in enhancing their features or repairing the lasting damage of a traumatic accident, plastic surgery has become quite commonplace in the United States. However, just like any other form of major surgery, there is always the possibility that something could go wrong. Since most cosmetic procedures are not covered by health insurance, the victim may also suffer more significant damages when the surgery does not go as planned.
Not only could the patient be required to undergo additional surgery to fix and/or treat the complications from the first procedure, but they may even be left with permanent scarring, an infection or a particularly serious health condition. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you discuss your case with our Tampa medical malpractice lawyers at The Florida Law Group if you or someone you love was negligently injured during a cosmetic procedure. With millions of dollars in compensation recovered behind us, we will fight diligently to secure the level of compensation that you deserve.
Surgical Complications Caused by Negligence
Just like any other form of surgery, cosmetic procedures require extensive preparation, careful execution and adequate post-operative supervision. If an attending doctor, surgeon, nurse or anesthesiologist fails to provide a reasonable level of care, the consequences could be catastrophic.
In most cases of plastic surgery malpractice, the victim will experience:
- Excessive bleeding or fluid build-up
- Infection at the site of incision
- Permanent scarring/disfigurement
- Development of hematomas
- Heart attack, stroke or blood clots
- Adverse reaction to anesthesia
