In order to obtain an expert medical opinion in relation to your cosmetic surgery claim we need to be provided with a full statement of the claim along with a copy of all relevant medical records. Once we are in receipt of such statement and medical records we will choose a suitable expert, usually in the UK, and request that they provide a report on causation and liability
There are two main facets to proving a claim for medical negligence and they will be dealt with in the expert report that highlights:
- if the medical practitioner was in fact negligent and the care that they provided fell below medically acceptable standards;
- if the negligence of the medical practitioner directly resulted in an injury to the patient. It must be noted that it is necessary to satisfy BOTH of these requirements.
