Dentists have a duty of care towards their patients, just like any other medical expert. While many of us find visiting their surgery to be a particularly stressful experience, we trust that a dental practitioner will be able to provide us with a standard level of care.If you have received treatment that you believe has been below par and suffered as a result, get in contact with Roberts Jackson. Our solicitors specialise in handling dental negligence claims and will make sure you are fully compensated for the unfortunate incident.
Common Dental Negligence Claims
Whether dental negligence occurs at the initial check-up or during surgery, it can cause a patient to suffer from unnecessary pain and injury. With plenty of experience managing dental negligence claims, we find that the most common cases arise from:
- Misdiagnosis – the delayed or wrong diagnosis of symptoms can prevent you from accessing the right treatment in a suitable time period, which would leave you entitled to misdiagnosis compensation.
- Administration errors – the failure to write, read or send accurate medical notes can lead to an incorrect prescription of medication, longer suffering and even mistakes in surgery.
- Substandard treatment – carelessness during a procedure can result in a patient suffering from unnecessary pain or requiring corrective treatment.
- Cosmetic errors – negligence during dental surgery or treatment can cause unnecessary scarring, loss of teeth or damage that needs to be repaired.
When suffering has been caused by the incompetence of a dental professional, and wouldn’t have taken place if you had received a standard level of care, you may be entitled to compensation for the impact it has had on your health and finances.
