NO WIN NO FEE botched lip filler compensation claims near me.
With lip fillers becoming so popular in today’s world, it is unsurprising that they are also becoming an increasingly more common type of medical negligence claim.
As a part of this, our leading medical negligence solicitors are often contacted by clients who have been the victim of botched lip filler, or lip filler gone wrong.
If you have suffered an injury due to beauty negligence in the lip filler process, botched lip filler, or any kind of lip filler gone wrong you are able to make a personal injury compensation claim.
What can go wrong with lip filler?
Some of the most common injuries that our NO WIN NO FEE personal injury solicitors specialising in beauty treatment claims and cosmetic surgery claims see, on a regular basis, as a result of lip filler gone wrong, include:
Skin infections after botched lip filler
Allergic reactions to lip filler gone wrong
Excessive swelling after lip filler
Lip filler movement
Damaged skin tissue
It should be remembered that some degree of swelling, bruising, and itching is a normal part of the lip filler process, that most people who have dermal lip filler will experience. Still, our beauty treatment claims specialist solicitors would advise that if your injuries are beyond that of the normal healing process, then it could be an indication that the beauty practitioner injecting your dermal filler acted negligently.
Failure to make clients sign a consent form- before any kind of beauty treatment, the client should be made to read and sign a full consent form warning them of any possible side effects, advising as to how the end result will look, and asking them of any health conditions or allergies.
Untrained beauticians carrying out the procedure- in the UK, medical training for Botox and Dermal Fillers such as lip fillers are only open to those who are qualified medical professionals, such as doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and dental therapists. Health Education England also recommended that anyone delivering Botox and dermal fillers should be qualified to Level 7. This is not compulsory, but should be an aim for all aesthetic botox and dermal filler providers. Despite these regulations, our specialist beauty claims solicitors often see clients who have had botched botox, or dermal lip filler gone wrong, that has been administered by a professional who has not been properly trained, or who does have the correct medical training.
Can you sue for botched lip filler?
You can sue for lip filler gone wrong, as long as you are able to prove that the botched lip filler has caused you injuries, and that these injuries were a result of the negligence of the person carrying out the dermal filler. This could be one of two things-
A procedural mistake or error of any kind- this would mean that the treatment itself, or at least one aspect of the treatment, was done incorrectly, or a mistake was made. For example, too much filler causing injury, or lip filler in the wrong place causing injury
Incorrect advice- this could be one of two things. Either failure to provide a consent form warning of any potential risks, and the intended finished result, or a failure to provide adequate advice as to aftercare leading to botched lip filler
Have I had an allergic reaction to my dermal lip filler?
Allergic reactions to dermal filler and lip fillers are a fairly common occurrence. This is due to the procedure essentially injecting your body with a foreign substance. Some people’s bodies will reject this substance, causing an allergic reaction.
Still, if you suffer from an allergic reaction to your botched lip filler, this does not automatically make you eligible to claim financial compensation through a beauty treatment claim with a medical negligence solicitor.
You can claim financial compensation for your injuries in an allergic reaction to dermal lip filler, only if you were not properly warned of the risks of allergic reaction beforehand.
Can I get a refund for lip filler gone wrong?
If you have suffered injuries due to your dermal filler gone wrong, and are looking to seek compensation, there are a number of different things that you can claim for, this could include a refund for the negligence lip filler treatment.
On top of this, your claim for compensation will be split into two groups.
General damages- meaning financial compensation for the injuries sustained from the negligent lip filler gone wrong
Special damages- payment for any other costs such as loss of earnings, travel costs, and medical costs.

How long do I have to make a botched lip filler compensation claim?
The time limits imposed on beauty claims, botched filler claims or botched lip filler claims, are subject to the 1980 Limitation Act. This Act states that any personal injury claim for negligence must be carried out up to 3 years from the date of the injury.
This means that if you have been injured from lip filler gone wrong, you have 3 years from the date at which you recognise your injuries to make a beauty negligence claim for financial compensation.
Still, our leading medical negligence solicitors specialising in botched lip filler and other beauty claims would always advise you to get in touch with a specialist solicitor as soon as possible, and get the ball rolling on your claim. No two cases are the same, and there is no telling how long a claim for financial compensation may take.
How much is my botched lip filler claim worth?
It is impossible to predict the amount of money and financial compensation that a given claim is worth. Still, our specialist personal injury beauty claims experts can offer some guidance using the guidelines from the Judicial College as to the amounts that a specific injury alone could bring. This does not account for the special damages or any other extra costs, simply the injury itself.
Estimated financial compensation:
Very severe facial scarring- where the effect are disfiguring and subsequent psychological impact is large.
£27,940 to £91,350
Less severe facial scarring- the facial disfigurement is signficantly less, but it is still substantial.
£16,860 to £45,440
Less significant facial scarring- where all but one scar can be covered, or instead where there are a number of smaller scars that leave the overall effect on the appearance, and the psychological effects, to be less.
