In recent years there has been a surge in dental claims, with dentists 4 times more likely to be sued than other practitioners.
Sometimes a tooth may have been extracted without good reason. This can lead to expensive ongoing treatment such as implants, crowns or even dentures. This can also be very distressing particularly if it has an impact on your appearance and your day-to-day life.
At OH Parsons we also have experience of dealing with cases where dental files have fractured during root canal treatment and broken pieces of dental instruments have become embedded in the gums, resulting in our client’s having to undergo further surgery to rectify the mistake and remove the broken piece of file.
As with all clinical negligence claims we need to prove that the standard of care fell below a reasonable standard and caused the injury you are now suffering from. To prove this we instruct independent dental experts who we trust to review your dental records and advise us whether there is any evidence of negligence in your case.
There are very strict time limits for making clinical negligence claims. Legal action must be taken within 3 years of the negligent treatment, or within 3 years of when you first knew, or should have known, that you had suffered an injury as a result of the treatment. We will be able to advise you of the time limit specific to your case.
Our Clinical Negligence Team act for clients all over the country and we are happy to travel to you to discuss your claim face to face within 5 days of being instructed. Failings in your dental care can lead to costly dental treatment, time off work, and can have an impact on your appearance so please do not hesitate to telephone us on 0800 526 368 or click here to email us.
