Have you suffered from Breast Augmentation Negligence?
Breast implant surgery is designed to help give a confidence boost to the person receiving it. If something goes wrong during surgery this can cause huge distress, long-term discomfort and complications that can have an impact on your entire life. Injuries caused during breast implant surgery can be very painful, distressing and very unsettling. Breast implant compensation can go some way to rectifying these issues, assisting you to correct any damage done, and to move forward with your life in an effective, and positive way.
At Hampson Hughes we have a team of friendly and experienced breast augmentation claims experts ready to help you find your way after suffering medical negligence during breast surgery. We will talk through your experience, gathering as much information as possible in order to evidence your breast implant claim, and ultimately recover the compensation you are entitled to.
If your surgeon has performed the procedure carelessly, or done anything incorrectly it can result in you suffering injury or illness. This can include the surgeon failing to describe in detail and at length all that will take place during surgery, prior to you making a decision on whether to go ahead with the surgery. It can also include an error during surgery itself.
Once you have had breast surgery you will feel tightness in the chest, bruising, swelling and pain that will disappear after a short time. If you suffer any of the following symptoms however, you could be entitled to seek breast implant compensation:
Leakages from the breast
Thick scarring that is obvious to the eye
Deflation of the breast
An infection post-op
The formation of a blood clot in the deep veins
The inability to breastfeed or to produce the same amount of breast milk as prior to the surgery
The rippling of the implant
Abnormality in the shape of your breasts
Creases or folds along the implant itself
Rupturing of the breast implants
Capsular contracture (where the breast tissue becomes hard after scar tissue has shrunk)
Poor pre-operative planning resulting in abnormal nipple position
When making breast augmentation claims we will look to acquire as much information as possible in order to secure maximum compensation to help you recover from your injuries. We can help you claim for general damages that cover the pain and distress you suffered due to the medical negligence. We can also claim compensation to cover the cost of care, helping you to secure assistance around the house during recovery, as well as any rehabilitation costs, medical costs, travel expenses linked with the breast implant claims and loss of earnings during the procedure, the recovery process and any future loss of earnings.
For a successful breast augmentation claims there is a range of compensation awards, depending on your specific situation and the extent of the injuries suffered. Every case is different to the next but once the severity of your injuries are taken into account and all evidence obtained we will then be able to provide you with a guide as to the figure you could expect to receive from your breast implant compensation claim. We will arrange any necessary medical examinations for you, as well as collecting and collating all medical records relating to your surgery and injuries.
Whenever you make a claim for medical negligence compensation you must ensure to start the proceedings within a certain time limit. As with all other claim types, breast implant claims have a time limit of three years in which to issue proceedings on a compensation claim. The three years begins on the date of the surgery itself, or from the date that you realised the injuries or illness you have suffered is linked to the breast implant surgery.

Kelly claimed £23,000 and changed her life. She started by taking our free 30 second claim test and found out how much compensation she was entitled to.
Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
