However it is an unfortunate fact that things can go wrong leaving the patient with unnecessary pain, discomfort and even with the need for corrective surgery.

If you feel that your duty of care has been breached, you may be able to claim compensation for dental negligence.

Types of dental negligence cases

  • Unnecessary extraction of one or more teeth
  • Wrong tooth being extracted
  • Too little anaesthetic being administered resulting in unbearable pain and discomfort during treatment
  • Infection caused by lack of cleanliness or inadequate hygiene routines
  • Failure or incorrect diagnosis of dental conditions, often leading to complications
  • Treatment being carried out by unqualified staff
  • Patient allergies not being identified prior to surgery (e.g. latex allergies)

Medical Negligence Claims

Our experienced team of medical injury solicitors are among the best in the country and we've helped thousands of injuried clients in our 35 year history.

There are few people who relish the thought of visiting the dentist, although in reality the anxiety felt by many people before the event is often much worse than the actual appointment. But if things do go wrong all these fears appear to have been justified and seeking compensation may be your best course of action.

As well as claiming for the pain and suffering you have incurred as a result of the negligent dental treatment, you may also be able to claim for any out of pocket expenses you have incurred as a direct result of the malpractice. This may include items such as lost earnings (if you required unpaid time off work to recover from complications), the cost of travelling to additional dental appointments and the cost of painkillers and prescription charges.

The amount of compensation you are awarded will depend on how severely you have been affected by the negligent medical treatment and how long it is likely to take you to make a full recovery.

If you would like to pursue a claim, the first thing to do is contact us. Call us today on 08000 93 00 94 and remember, you're not committed to anything.
