Our teeth are incredibly important. Regular dental treatment is essential.
However for many of us, visiting a dentist can be a daunting experience. From waiting to be seen by a dentist, to sitting in the dreaded chair itself can be enough to put many people off having a check-up for years.
Whether you’re having a routine filling, root canal or cosmetic dentistry, the treatment you receive should be second to none.
Nevertheless, mistakes can happen causing injuries. Any treatment required to rectify the mistake can be costly and cause further trauma.
No matter what dental procedure, it should be carried out correctly and you should be satisfied with the outcome.
If you have experienced any of the following, then you may have a case to make a claim:
- Misdiagnosis or failure/delayed diagnosis of a serious dental condition
- Physical or psychological Injury caused by a poorly performed dental procedures
- Financial loss from having to pay to correct a mistake made by a professional or loss of earnings suffered if you are unable to work as a result of the negligence
Should any of the above apply to you, then you’re on the right track.
It is also worth noting that the time limit for making a dental negligence claim is three years from the date it occurred or the date the negligence was discovered and you will need to provide evidence too.
Next you’ll need to speak to an experienced solicitor who will firstly let you know whether you have a strong case and then explain in detail how the process works.
Yes provided it fits the criteria stated above.
If your case fits our risk assessment criteria we will act for you under a “No Win No Fee” Conditional Fee Agreement basis and if applicable an After The Event Insurance Policy.
The claims process can sometimes be lengthy but your solicitor will undertake this for you. Just remember you need to give them as much information and evidence as possible in order to create a strong case!
A medical expert will be instructed to prepare a report on your behalf.
We work hard to achieve the best settlement figure for your claim. A lot of cases are resolved at an early stage and, therefore, going to court is usually avoidable.
Sometimes there may be a dispute with your case which may only be resolved by issuing Court proceedings.
