Dental Negligence Claims

Get in touch

Most dental professionals are skilled and dedicated, offering excellent treatment. However, when things go wrong the consequences can be devastating.

If you have suffered as a result of dental treatment, through mistakes or a lack of care, you could be eligible for compensation for dental negligence.

Even if any injuries are accidental, you should not have to suffer the consequences of negligence without some form of compensation.

That is what our dental malpractice lawyers can help you secure.

Choosing a dental negligence claims solicitor

Raising a medical negligence claim of any type can be a daunting prospect.

After all, dental treatment can be traumatic even when it goes well and may need extended recovery time. It is understandable that you would want to avoid the stress of making a claim when you are still recovering.

However, it makes sense to engage with dental malpractice lawyers as soon as possible, to begin the claim.

Most dental negligence claims have a three-year time limit. Also, the sooner the claim begins, the easier it is to gather evidence. If you are concerned about stress, that is where our dental negligence claims solicitors come in.

What is dental negligence?

Dental negligence occurs when a dental professional fails to provide the appropriate level of care, resulting in injury or harm. Instances of inadequate, delayed, or incorrect treatment can not only affect your physical health but also impact your financial and emotional well-being.

To help you understand dental negligence or dental malpractice, we’ve provided some common examples below. You may be eligible to pursue compensation if you’ve experienced any of the following:

  1. Delayed diagnosis: Timely identification of dental issues is crucial. If your dentist failed to detect a problem promptly, it could lead to delayed treatment and exacerbate the issue.
  2. Incorrect or careless treatment: This can include situations such as extracting the wrong tooth or using excessive force, causing further injury.
  3. Misdiagnosis: A misdiagnosed dental issue can result in unnecessary treatments and additional complications.
  4. Substandard treatment: If your dentist or orthodontist performed the treatment poorly, leading to further harm or injury.

If your experience doesn’t fall into one of the categories above, don’t worry. Our skilled dental negligence solicitors are here to discuss your unique situation and determine how we can help.
