Claiming Compensation For Varicose Vein Treatments

Case Study - Laser Varicose Vein Removal Burns

Mrs V underwent a course of endovenous laser treatment / ablation (ELA), to remove swollen and unsightly varicose veins on her legs. During her third session, Mrs V noticed that the laser was directed onto her legs for longer than previously, and commented on this to the laser operator, who told her that this was normal for a third treatment. Afterwards, Mrs V’s skin was red and painful. The clinic again told her this was normal, and recommended that she purchase some aloe vera gel from the chemist. The following day, the skin on Mrs V’s legs was swollen and began to blister. She was prescribed antibiotics and painkillers by her GP, and was forced to take 2 weeks off work due to the pain and discomfort. She cancelled her remaining ELA sessions after informing the clinic that she would be seeking legal advice.

Our Legal Advice

Bartletts Solicitors went on to represent Mrs V in her personal injury claim against the cosmetic / laser clinic where her ELA treatment was carried out. We argued that our client’s third session was botched, and that the laser had been beamed onto her skin for longer than was either safe or usual in the circumstances. It later emerged that the laser machine had been serviced a few days prior to Mrs V’s third laser varicose vein removal session, and that the laser operator had been told to direct the laser onto the skin for longer than normal, to compensate for a supposed loss of power. All of this was freely admitted by the owner of the cosmetic / laser clinic, and the laser operator who had carried out Mrs V’s treatment. Because of this, we were able to win an admission of liability swiftly from the clinic’s insurers, and our client subsequently received a cheque for £3,750 in personal injury compensation.
