We helped a client who suffered a severe reaction following laser surgery for removal of unwanted facial hair resulting in some pigmentation and hypersensitivity.

The client developed a psychological reaction and we had to call in expert evidence from a psychiatrist as well as a consultant plastic surgeon.

We included within the claim for future loss a suitable amount for cost of future make up including camouflage products.  The defendant’s insurers failed to respond to reasonable settlement proposals and proceedings were subsequently issued resulting in the defendants agreeing to pay settlement damages to the client of £30,000.
