What is a hair transplant claim?

Hair transplants are procedures designed to move hair to an area of the head that is bald or thinning. In most cases, the patient is able to return to work after three days. But there are times when things can go wrong.

If you were injured or suffered complications after a hair transplant, you could have grounds to make a hair transplant claim. This could apply if you’ve experienced:

  • Excessive scarring
  • Incorrectly administered anaesthetic
  • Infection
  • Nerve damage or loss of sensation

To find out if we could support you, get in touch with our friendly advisors. We offer a free consultation, so you’ll have nothing to lose by giving us a call.

Why should I make a hair transplant claim?

As with any surgery, there are risks associated with hair transplants. But your surgeon should explain these to you and make every effort to ensure your safety before, during and after the procedure. If this did not happen, and you suffered as a result, you could be entitled to compensation.

We understand that having a hair transplant go wrong can be incredibly disappointing. And making a claim might not be the first thing on your mind. But it’s only right that you pursue compensation and support for what you’ve been through.

Aside from the emotional impact of a botched hair transplant, you might also find yourself being affected financially. For example, if you need time to recover, you may have to take time off work. Or you could end up paying for corrective surgeries.

If your claim is successful, your compensation will take into account any lost or reduced earnings, as well as the cost of further treatment. This can help to provide some financial security as you recover from your injuries.

How can First4Lawyers help?

We work with reputable solicitors who specialise in cosmetic surgery negligence claims. They’ll work with you to build a case and secure the outcome you deserve.

You have the right to have what happened to you acknowledged. And making a claim could help to ensure changes are made, so no one else is subjected to the same negligence you were.

For these types of claims, we work on a No Win No Fee basis. So you won’t need to worry about paying us anything upfront and there will be no legal costs to cover if your case is unsuccessful.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Our No Win No Fee solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim in the form of a percentage of your damages. This could be up to 25% but it won't be more than that, except in cases of road traffic accidents and housing disrepair. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 35% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident and housing disrepair claims.

First4Lawyers are an award-winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

Hair transplant claim FAQs

How long do I have to make a hair transplant claim?

In most cases, you’ll have three years to make a hair transplant claim. This may sound like a long time, but we would always suggest speaking to a legal expert as soon as you’re able to.

Seeking legal advice early will help you to work out where you stand in relation to making a claim. It will also make it easier for your solicitor to access key evidence such as medical records and witness testimonies.

How much could my hair transplant claim be worth?

Hair transplant compensation can vary depending on the severity of your injuries and how they’ve affected your life. But if your case is successful, any settlement you receive will likely be split into general and special damages.

General damages will consider the pain and suffering caused by the negligence you experienced. This will include the psychological as well as the physical impact of your injuries.

Special damages are there to cover any financial losses related to your claim. This could range from lost earnings if you’ve had to take time off work, to the cost of travel to and from hospital.

Your solicitor will be able to give you a better idea of how much your claim could be worth after speaking to you. But for a rough estimate, try our free compensation calculator.

What can I do if I’m unhappy with my hair transplant?

If you’ve suffered complications after undergoing a hair transplant, the most important thing is to seek medical attention. Try to keep a note of any appointments you’ve attended – including the date, time and the doctor’s name. This could help you if you go on to make a claim.

After this, you could consider getting in touch with our legal services team. We’ll ask you a few straightforward questions about your case and let you know if you have a strong claim.

If we’re able to take on your case, we’ll ask if you’d like to be put in touch with one of our specialist solicitors. There will be no pressure on you to proceed at this point, and you can always call us back later if you need to.
