€25,000 Personal Injury Award
A lady who underwent treatment to have lip-line cosmetic surgery ended up with a tattoo in the wrong place over her lip has secured €25,000 damages/compensation at the High Court.
She took a personal injury claim against the Cosmetic Company, Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Limited as she had suffered a “botched job” leaving permanent disfigurement to the lower lip.
Damages were assessed at €25,000, including special damages to include the price of the original procedure at €254 and €700 for lip pencils and make-up used to disguise the tattooed line.
Mr Justice Éamon de Valera said it was clearly very traumatic for Ms McCaffrey at the time.
