Desmond D’Mello Compensation – Update from our Daybrook Dental Negligence Team

Our team who are leading the way in the fight for justice are not at all surprised that the Dental Defence Union (DDU) are refusing to cover disgraced Nottinghamshire dentist Desmond D’Mello for claims – in fact we expected it.

Having seen that this news has hit the press, we thought it best to publish an article on the subject to help those making claims, or thinking about a claim, understand the situation.

We are surprised that this news has been brought to the press though – it’s well known that any indemnity the Dental Defence Union may or may not provide is discretionary. In fact, other such ways that dentists will commonly cover themselves are very much the same. Given the volume of patients involved we are not at all surprised that the DDU has refused to cover Mr D’Mello.

In a statement from our team: “it’s been a factor since we initiated our campaign for justice for thousands of people affected. It’s a subject we have discussed at length with our barristers, and it comes as no surprise that the DDU have chosen to refuse indemnity for the people bringing claims against D’Mello.

The DDU has yet to respond to our attempts at communicating with them since we received notification that they won’t be covering D’Mello.

If you are a former patient who has been affected by this scandal don’t be put off – we’re still taking cases on and figures from news agencies and correspondence with other firms puts us as the law firm with the highest number of Claimants. We can help you on an entirely no win, no fee basis so you have nothing to lose in contacting us about your options for joining the claims.

The media has reported that the only option left is to pursue D’Mello personally, but there is a lot more to it than that. We have many years of experience in fighting for the rights of group action Claimants, dental claims, and psychological claims.

Call our helpline on 0800 634 7575 for advice today and join us as we lead the way in the battle for justice.
