Occasionally, mistakes are made - and when they are, patients have a right to seek compensation.
Few of us enjoy visiting the dentist but patients are entitled to receive treatment that doesn’t cause them to suffer unnecessary pain or injury.
Dentists – both private and NHS practices – owe a duty of care to their patients. If they fail to reach those standards, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
A dental negligence claim can arise from:
– failure to diagnose a dental illness or a misdiagnosis
– failure to adequately perform dental surgery or other treatment
– causing an injury due to treatment
– carrying out unnecessary treatment
– failed dental implants
Regardless of the type of claim that you may have, our lawyers know that mistakes by dentists can have significant consequences.
The dentists who run the surgery are also responsible for all of the acts or omissions of the medical and non-medical staff working there such as nurses and hygienists.
Our lawyers are experienced in representing patients who have been injured as a result of negligent dental treatment and helping them to get compensation for their injuries and other financial losses.
