Can I make a cosmetic surgery compensation claim?

Cosmetic surgery is a very personal decision and is one you’ve likely chosen to have performed on your body to make improvements to the way you look or to improve a pre-existing condition. This means that when cosmetic surgery doesn’t go right, it can be incredibly traumatic.

Thousands of Australians have cosmetic surgery procedures performed every year; however it continues to be one of the most unregulated medical industries in the country.

You have may a cosmetic surgery compensation claim if:

  • It can be proved that the surgeon was inexperienced in the procedure and caused your harm
  • There was poor or insufficient preoperative or postoperative planning or communication as part of the procedure
  • The surgical technique was incorrect, and you were required to undergo corrective surgery to fix your surgeon’s mistakes
  • The treatment recommended was incorrectly performed or not appropriate for you and you sustained some harm.

My last stage of Workers compensation claim was managed by Emma Perkins, Natasha Stojanovic, Rebecca Dunshea and Kelli Robinson at Garling and Co. Lawyers who went the extra mile with their service... from the beginning to the end of 3 years of my case. I have become very anxious with almost everything after a workplace injury and a lot of times I probably ask more questions than I need to, but Emma Perkins always finds clear answers to my questions in a short time and explains to me patiently even using her mealtime or between her meeting and make me feel that I have been very well take care and supported. I am so grateful and extremely satisfied. The excellent service, attitude, and culture of Metthew Garling and his team are second to none with a very high success rate. If you going to battle with your workplace injury for a short or long period, you are better off with Garling and Co. lawyers who are able back you up every step of the way. I strongly recommend it to anybody who needs their service like me. Julieread more

Work cover fund is GOVT’S money but insurer think that it is from their 14th generation. So only they can have it. Not only that, people from the work, IME doctor from insurer, back to work... coordinator from work, Rehab provider from any side push the worker as hard as possible that the worker (doesn’t matter how the workers mental or psychical condition) either go back to his pre injury duty or leave the job.More over on that very bumpy any difficult journey some of them only treat the worker as a MONEY MAKING MECHINE .in some point worker feels like, no rooms to breath. On that moment need someone to support legally, someone to care, someone to relive.On my case I believe that, somehow, I manage to make my God happy. That’s why God sends me to Matthew Gerling and his team Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, and all of GARLING & co Lawyers.I am not good enough in English, can’t express my gratitude.Matthew, Allison, Rebecca and Nathan, please accept my appreciation and pass it to others.read more

Frequently Asked Questions

1. What types of negligent treatment can I make a cosmetic surgery compensation claim for?

When it comes to cosmetic surgery compensation claims, there are many different types of cosmetic surgery negligence that you may be able to claim for, including:
