Recently, I had Botox done at a clinic that was offering a special deal, however the surgery has caused my eyelids to droop, am I eligible to claim for Botox injections gone wrong?
In order to determine if you are eligible to claim for Botox injections gone wrong, it must first be established beyond reasonable doubt that the Botox injections are causing your eyelids to droop.
Therefore, it is recommended that you seek immediate medical attention once you become aware of your condition. A doctor will be able to advise if the Botox is affecting your eyelids or if it is a different condition. Once it has been established that Botox is to blame for your condition, it will then have to be determined if the practitioner who administered the treatment was negligent.
A medical examination will determine if you are eligible to claim for Botox injections gone wrong as they will show whether too much Botox was administered or if it was injected into the wrong area of the forehead.
You are also advised to take photographs of your injury as they may be required as evidence later on. It is also recommended that you speak with a personal injury solicitor to determine the amount of compensation for Botox injections gone wrong that you may be entitled to claim.
As this is an injury that will affect your face, you may suffer emotional trauma and it is advised that you maintain a diary of events and activities you were unable to participate in due to your injury and also record how that made you feel. If you are feeling any embarrassment or anxiety as a result of your injury you should seek medical care from a psychologist who will verify the psychological pain, allowing you to include this in your compensation claim.
There are other factors which could alter the amount of compensation you are entitled to claim for Botox injections gone wrong, which is why you should contact a personal injury claims solicitor without delay to ensure you obtain the maximum amount of compensation you are eligible to receive.
