Many women and men suffer from medical malpractice at the hands of medical spas that offer various cosmetic procedures such as injections of Botox, Juvederm, Restylane, and similar dermal fillers. Another frequently blundered cosmetic procedure is laser hair removal that has been incorrectly or unprofessionally performed, leaving people with long term scarring and discoloration all over their body. Also, recently we have seen a number of patients complaining about developing Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia (PAH) after undergoing CoolSculpting a “non-invasive” “fat reducing” procedure that claims to shrink fat by up to 20% with each procedure.
We represent clients and recover compensation for women and men who have been injured due to botched cosmetic procedures.
Cosmetic procedures performed by medical spas are subject to Florida medical malpractice laws, if a medical professional is administering the procedure. Medical malpractice occurs when medical personnel do not do what is expected of them by their professional standards. Although, some cosmetic procedure injuries result from non-medical persons performing them.
Medical malpractice cases are more complex and require a higher level of skill. Florida law allows persons to file lawsuits against their doctor, chiropractor, nurse, hospital, clinic, or medical spa if they have been injured due to the negligence of that healthcare provider. Not every injury resulting from contact with a doctor automatically qualifies as a medical malpractice case in Florida and each case must be assessed individually.
We have medical consultants that review each and every single one of our cosmetic procedure cases to determine the likelihood of success. Our attorney always confers with the medical consultant to ensure that no detail is overlooked. After careful consideration, our next step is hiring a medical expert that reviews the client’s entire medical file and renders a professional opinion on the case. Florida law requires a pre-suit investigation for each medical malpractice case, including cosmetic procedures, filed in the state.
