Dental injury compensation claims

dental negligence

Over the course of our experience as specialist injury and medical negligence lawyers, we have represented many people for dental injury compensation claims. From incorrect extractions to misdiagnoses, dentists could make a variety of different mistakes when treating patients and, where they have caused you harm, you deserve to be fairly compensated for their mistakes.

All medical practitioners, including dentists, have a duty to try to eliminate all the possible risks of treatment and surgical procedures. As such, where they fail in this responsibility, it may constitute as medical or dental negligence.

As experts in injury claims, we know how to make sure that our clients receive the best compensation pay-out possible for the injuries they have suffered. Read on to find out if you could be eligible to make a dental injury compensation claim with our specialist lawyers.

Can I make a dental injury compensation claim?

When we assess whether you can make a dental injury compensation claim, we are looking to establish a link between your injury and the actions of your dentist. You could be eligible to claim if your dental injury was caused by any of the following forms of potential negligence:

  • surgical mistakes made by dentists or dental nurses (e.g. wrong tooth extracted);
  • incorrect diagnosis leading to the wrong treatment;
  • failure to diagnose where your symptoms gave evidence of your condition;
  • incorrect treatment;
  • delays to treatment;
  • poor advice.

It is important to highlight that many dental errors can be acceptable in situations where the dentist or dental nurse made every effort to ensure your treatment was appropriate and safe. However, if it is judged that the practitioner had every opportunity to make the correct diagnosis or choice of treatment but failed to do so, this can constitute dental negligence and could, therefore, allow you to make a claim.

How we value your claim

In order to prove that the injury you suffered was caused by negligence, we will normally need to hire a private expert to assess your case and the relevant evidence. Their expertise can also help us to determine the valuation of your claim.

In any personal injury claim, the compensation amount typically increases in line with the severity of the injury. This is the General Damages section of your claim, in which you can be compensated for the pain, suffering and inconvenience caused.

In addition, claimants could also obtain Special Damages in cases where financial losses and expenses are caused. For example, if you have had to pay for further reparative treatment, your dental injury compensation can reflect these additional costs.

Make your claim with specialist injury lawyers

With years of experience in personal injury claims, we have recovered significant compensation pay-outs for hundreds of claimants.

We believe that all victims of dental and medical negligence injuries should be able to access justice, which is why we offer No Win, No Fee representation to eligible clients. This means that there are no upfront costs for you to pay, and we can write off our legal fees in the event that your claim is unsuccessful, subject to the terms and conditions agreed.
