Dental Negligence Compensation Claims
Poor dental treatment and mistakes made by a dentist can cause significant pain and discomfort for dental patients of private and NHS practices. Blackwater Law’s specialist team of solicitors have a wealth of experience in dental negligence claims, representing clients across the UK.
Blackwater Law offer no win no fee legal advice and representation relating to dental negligence claims.
Compensation claims against NHS and private dentists
Mistakes are made by dentists in both NHS and private dental practices. Negligence can arise from a medical professional’s failure to diagnose and treat conditions or also in their failing to gain consent from the patient under proper circumstances.
Typical dental error cases include:
- Failure to treat gum disease
- Root canal treatment errors
- Failed implants
- Extraction of the incorrect tooth or failed extractions
- Failing to manage and treat decay
- Inadequate fillings and crowns
- Failure to spot signs of cancer in the mouth
- Failed dental cosmetic procedures
Our team of compensation solicitors can work for you to compile information and evidence that demonstrates the treatment, or lack thereof, fell below the standard of treatment offered from any competent dentist/hospital. This will support grounds for a negligence compensation claim and assist in building the strongest dental negligence claim possible.
The negative consequences of a Dentist’s mistakes can involve a combination of suffering, pain, absence from work and emotional stress. Claiming compensation will not undo what has been done, but the money we may be able to claim for you can compensate you for the suffering, distress and any financial implications of not being able to work. Our work also helps to ensure that the same mistake will not occur to another individual.
