Clinical Negligence experts Forbes Solicitors were recently quoted in The Guardian. Sara Linford, clinical negligence solicitor was quoted by the leading national newspaper in the article, 'Cosmetic 'cowboys' face wave of lawsuits'.
The article was looking at the call for new rules and regulations as a boom in non-surgical beauty treatments brings complaints to Clinical Negligence Solicitors.
Sara was quoted as saying. "Complainants say they have been burned by laser treatment, that fillers have been injected into the wrong place, or that the skin has been left looking lumpy, or that they've had too much Botox put into the wrong place, which has left them looking rather strange. Increasingly, I have seen people suffering from botched treatments administered by insufficiently trained practitioners. More and more people each year are harmed or scarred, either temporarily or permanently."
Sara adds to this, "We have seen an increase in the number of enquiries recently from patients who have suffered as a result of cosmetic procedures and often it is not only the physical effects that are causing upset. Many people are left distressed as their appearance has been affeccted and they are left physhological scarred."
