After being a victim of laser burn, you shouldn’t just sit in the corner and cry. You also can’t hide for the rest of your life. You are a victim and you have the right to sue the company that has done it to you. It is important for you to have legal advice so you can carry on with the fight until the end. It might just be a simple laser burn, but the scar might affect you forever.
Imagine if you are a model or in a company where beauty is essential. You might no longer be able to retain the same job since you will most likely be disqualified for the post. This strengthens your claim for damages. Yes, it is embarrassing to come out because you have suffered from the burns. This is worsened if you have burns on your face. However, you should also bear in mind that you are fighting on behalf of other people who have also become victims, but are afraid to come forward. You can inspire them to get over their embarrassment and file for damages.
Don’t be intimidated
Some people might also be put off the idea of claiming compensation because they will have to fight against a huge company. They might also worry that the legal fees will be so big that they won’t be able to carry on until the end of the case. However, it is also important to remember that there are a lot of legal offices out there. You can even find some that specialise in cases related to laser burn or other botched surgery cases.
With the best legal advisers by your side, you won’t feel worried anymore. Don’t worry about the fees. Some of these companies have a no win, no pay policy. It means that unless you win the case, you don’t have to pay them for their services. You can carry on with the fight. If you don’t win, at least you have given it a shot, which is better than regretting not fighting for your rights.
If you are awarded a certain amount for damages that you have claimed, use the money wisely. Now that you no longer have a stable source of living, you have to be more creative in using what you have got. You should also learn to not trust any company out there even if they promise you heaven and earth just to make you feel pretty. To top it all, this should serve as a lesson to you – that beauty is not just on the outside. It is also satisfying if you think that because of your fight, others might have learned to fight too.
