‘A Practical Guide to Cosmetic Surgery Claims’ by Dr Victoria Handley
Cosmetic surgery litigation is not like other civil litigation. Your client is often scared, emotional, embarrassed, and fearful that the cosmetic enhancement that has gone wrong will be permanent or further surgery will be needed to correct it. The Defendant will be well versed, may not be employed by the clinic or may not have insurance.
An understanding of the requirements of consent, product liability, clinical negligence, who to sue, regulation of the defendant, causation, experts and heads of damage, resurrecting a company or suing out of the jurisdiction, all come into play.
This practical guide is an indispensable, complete guide for the busy practitioner. Its unique format, clear layout, and concise style allows the practitioner to find essential information quickly. It is a how-to guide with handy tips, tactics and checklists.
