Dental Negligence Claim
A visit to the dentist is never a pleasant experience for many people, even when the treatment goes according to plan. If things do go wrong however the results can be catastrophic.
Botched dental work can leave the sufferer in great pain and in certain circumstances can leave the patient with a serious disfigurement.
Dentists like most other health care professionals have a ‘duty of care’ to their patients, to ensure they receive the correct treatment in the proper manner and in the vast majority of dental procedures this is the case.
Unfortunately, like most things in life, things can and do go wrong. If you feel you have been the victim of sub-standard dental work, which caused you unnecessary expense or trauma, simply call the Bollin Legal Associates on 0800 988 2478 and speak to a friendly claims advisor, who will discuss your claim with you and advise on the best way to proceed.
Examples of Dental Negligence
Dental complications can, in our experience, come about in a variety of different ways, listed below are the most common causes that we have dealt with over recent years at Bollin Legal Associates:
• Lack of due care and attention - patients can and do get injured or perfectly healthy teeth are removed in error, when a dentist loses concentration, either through tiredness or overwork.
• Missed diagnosis – many medical conditions can be identified and diagnosed during a regular dental check-up, if you feel a dentist has caused unnecessary suffering by not spotting symptoms early enough, you may be entitled to make a claim.
• Medication mistakes – dentists often administer various drugs and anaesthetics to patients and occasionally mistakes occur that have a detrimental affect on the patient.
• Poor Hygiene – dental equipment and treatment must be carried out in a safe, clean and sterile environment. If there is any breakdown in cleanliness procedures serious complications can result.
