Thankfully, most dermal procedures go smoothly, and the results are stunning. But when lip fillers go wrong, or an allergic reaction to the product results in having to hide away rather than increasing confidence, is it possible to claim compensation?
The answer, of course, is yes.
Dermal fillers restore volume that has been lost over the years to your face.
As we age, our bodies stop producing collagen and elastin – major components to the coveted youthful face.
Experts suggest that the body stops producing these substances from the mid-twenties, and by the end of that decade you will no longer be making new elastin or collagen.
Fillers have been used for decades to cover for nature’s cruel abandonment.
Some of the more famous dermal fillers, such as collagen, need so little introduction that the name itself has become synonymous with the procedure.
The breadth of dermal fillers is a little wider
Unfortunately, this does lead to a greater number of dermal fillers gone wrong, with over-filling and uneven lips being just two from a list of issues that can occur.
While the technology and safety around dermal filler procedures
Any practitioner you go to has a duty of care to you as their client. If you have a problem that has occurred due to negligence, then you will be entitled to make a dermal filler negligence claim and receive compensation for the damage that has been done.
Some of the issues that can happen include:
Whether it is a minor case of lumpy lip filler or something more serious that requires surgical corrective treatment or other reversal procedures, your beauty expert should have done everything possible to ensure a safe and problem-free process.
Any surgeon or other medical practitioner has a legal duty of care to their patients.
This includes making sure that any lip filler or other dermal filler procedure has been fully explained to the patient prior to anything taking place.
Allergies should be tested safely, and the risks involved in undertaking a procedure must be clearly outlined. Any potential side effects should be listed and any questions you have should be answered in full.
Remember, you also have an obligation to read or listen to any information presented and will not experience success for a dermal filler compensation claim purely because you were unhappy with the results of your surgery.
Any practitioner will also have indemnity insurance in place in case of any compensation claim. Remember that you are entitled to claim compensation for your dermal filler injury if it wasn’t your fault and you won’t be negatively affecting your practitioner or damaging their business by making a claim – at worst, you will make their annual insurance premium rise!
At Cute Injury, we have experts who have experience in the field of lip filler and dermal filler claims. We operate on a No Win No Fee basis which means that making a compensation claim will not cost you anything – there are no upfront charges or hidden fees.
A dermal filler compensation claim may include any associated costs – these might be a claim for having the filler dissolved, costs for emotional support, travel expenses and more.
It is important that you document as much as possible, taking photos to show evidence of any filler problems, as well as keeping invoices and receipts for any costs you wish to have taken into account.
