Many people across the state of Virginia turn to plastic surgery to correct an issue with their body or to enhance a certain feature and expect an excellent outcome that will improve their quality of life. However, in the hands of the wrong doctors, more and more people are finding themselves victims of botched plastic surgeries. While we expect skill and expertise from any medical provider, there are still under-qualified or careless doctors that make small but impactful mistakes and cause debilitating problems for patients.
When you pursue a plastic surgery injury case, you may help rid the community of negligent doctors and practices who otherwise would continue performing reckless procedures on more patients. If you suffered an injury, damage, or losses after going under the knife, the medical malpractice attorneys at Cannella & O’Neal will make sure that the doctor and/or practice is held legally accountable, and you get the compensation you need to get back on track.
Plastic Surgery MALPRACTICE – Proving SURGEON Negligence
While injury, loss, or damages from a plastic-surgery-gone-wrong may seem obvious, the more challenging part in building this type of case is proving that the doctor acted negligently. In the state of Virginia, a plastic surgeon must perform in the same manner that another surgeon of normal skill would act under the same circumstance. If it can be proved that your surgeon did not follow this, you may be able to prove negligence in a medical malpractice case.
