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.

I would like to thank the entire team at Garling and Co for being in my corner throughout the worst years I've experienced in my life.I chose Garling and Co in the end after being seriously injured... at work and needing representation, something I should have done years prior.I met with over 12 other legal firms in Sydney. Large,medium, small and all in between. Some were friends, some family, some were sharks, many were pressuring, many promised the world, Matthew was not like that.Matthew was the benchmark as he was one of the first I spoke with and ultimately he stood out in the end as I felt he was the most genuine.From the outset to the conclusion, I found Matthew to be very polite, easy to communicate with and extremely down to earth.He explained everything simply, he had answers for any questions along the way. He told me it how it was, not just what I wanted to hear.Matthew is a genuine nice guy that runs a very efficient and professional law firm. I made the correct choice engaging him in my claims and would not hesitate in recommending him.Renee was also terrific in handling my TPD claim which was literally finalised faster then international postage.Allison, Rebecca and Kelli were all great, always.Thanks again Garling and Co.read more

When you work for an employer for a number of decades and suffer a debilitating injury, you expect compassion, support and belief that you are genuine. When you don’t get that and then also have to... deal with Workers Compensation Insurers it slowly breaks you.That's when you need amazing support like Matthew Garling and his team. From my first meeting with Matthew I was confident I was referred to the right guy. I couldn’t be more pleased with my outcome. Matthew is the Guru of workers compensation, he is professional, easy to work with, nothings a bother and most importantly he gets great results. Do not think twice about using Garling and Co Lawyers.Thank you Matthew, Renee, Allison and Kelli for your invaluable support.read more
