The ABCs of Dealing With Domestic Violence

Domestic violence was a part of my family's life for years. When I made the decision to leave with my children, I had to rely on the law to provide the protection we needed. Sometimes, the system does not work as fast as we want. I soon learned that going at it alone without any guidance caused significant delays. I created this blog to help others who are seeking legal means to deal with an abusive ex. By making the right moves, it is possible to get the necessary protections in place so that you can also live a happier and healthier life.

Did You Have Facial Plastic Surgery Gone Wrong? Get A Medical Malpractice Lawyer Fast

by Gina Hill

If you went in to get some plastic surgery done on your face and you ended up with permanent damage and an altered appearance from bad surgery, you should call a medical malpractice attorney. You shouldn't have to pay for the surgeries you may need to repair the damage or live with a lifetime of unhappiness because of your appearance.

A medical malpractice lawyer can determine if what the surgeon did during the operation is what caused your disfiguration and if it is worth your efforts to move forward with the case. Here are some things that the lawyer will do.

Get an Expert Opinion of What Went Wrong

You will most likely have to see another plastic surgeon or possibly more than one to see what exactly went wrong with the surgery. The other surgeons may be able to look at the results and determine if the problem was:

  • Faulty methods and outdated medical tactics
  • Poor execution of the surgery
  • Missed underlying issues that would complicate the surgery
  • Problematic surgical equipment

When the cause of the poor results and possible disfiguration or permanent damage can be diagnosed and proven, it provides great evidence for your case.

Determine the Reconstruction Needed

Other surgeons can also explain the reconstruction needed. For your medical malpractice lawsuit, you want great details about:

  • Details of the surgery needed
  • Recovery time
  • Potential to regain a normal look or the desired look
  • Costs for the new surgery

The impact of the reconstructive surgeries will be an important factor in the case, and you want to get the financial compensation you deserve if you are the victim of a botched surgery.

Estimate All Financial Losses and Future Burdens

There are a lot of financial factors that will be involved in this type of case. Some of the following financial burdens will typically be included in the settlement:

  • Cost for the original surgery
  • Lost work wages
  • Mental anxiety
  • Permanent damages
  • Future surgery costs

Any direct or trickle-down effect of the financial issues, including your legal fees, will usually be included the settlement.

The lawyer will look at all of the details and evidence that prove there was medical negligence, and then work on presenting the case. The surgeon who did the work will determine if they want to fight the lawsuit or if they want to settle out of court. Don't waste any time and get yourself medical malpractice representation right away.
