Medical Malpractice Attorney in NYC: Botched Plastic Surgery Claims
"In 2014, more than $12 billion were spent on surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASASPS). Although most plastic surgeries had been safe, there were victims of bad surgery who suffered botched results due to the provider’s negligence or inadequate training. As in any other kind of surgical operation, the patient virtually entrusts his/her life—and physical beauty—to the plastic surgeon and the latter has the obligation to deliver the desired outcome safely. If, for some reason, the surgeon fails to deliver as expected, resulting in injury to the patient, a medical malpractice claim is in order."
