Laser Surgery Injury Claims

Laser treatment has become increasingly popular over the last few years and now covers a wide variety of problems. You can have laser treatment on your hair, eyes, scars, and body to name a few places. A laser is a high powered beam of light and should only be used by an experienced or qualified professional (although legally, this treatment can be performed by anyone).

for no obligation advice on making a claim.

We deal with personal injury compensation claims under a no win no fee agreement.

Common laser surgery issues

Some laser treatments can leave the treated area sensitive or red for days after the treatment. There are different frequencies that each type of laser works best at, depending on the area it is being used on and the desired results. Your doctor should inform you of the risks before you have anything done. Some of the common issues that can arise are:

  • Blindness
  • Damaged cornea
  • Damage to the skin pigment
  • Scarring
  • Burns and blistering

Laser Eye Surgery Claims

Laser eye surgery is not always guaranteed to work and in some cases you can be left short-sighted. The procedure involves reshaping the cornea which corrects any focusing issues that you have. The cornea is like a transparent window at the front of your eye and can be easily damaged and scarred.

Laser Hair Removal Claims

High intense laser beams are aimed near the base of the hair follicle to prevent or slow down the growth. It is paramount that the correct type of laser be used on your skin with the correct frequency setting. A patch test is usually carried out around 6-8 weeks before any treatment takes place. This is not always the case as the procedure can be carried out anywhere, although some local authorities require that the premises have a license.

Can I claim for laser treatment compensation?

If you are in unnecessary pain or suffering as a result of your laser treatment then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation. You can also claim for any financial losses that you have incurred as a result of your pain and suffering.

No Win No Fee Claims

No Win No Fee

A No Win No Fee claim means just what it says: if we don't win your compensation claim we won't ask you to pay for our work.

Currently in the UK, there are no formal regulations on who can carry out non surgical laser treatments such as hair removal and wrinkle treatment. There are also no regulations as to where the laser treatment can be carried out. Some local authorities require that the premises must be licensed.

All doctors who perform laser eye surgery should be registered with the General Medical Council as a legal requirement.

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists recommends that doctors who carry out eye surgery should have undergone additional specialist training although, this is not a legal requirement.
