Dental negligence occurs when you experience substandard treatment from your dentist or associated dental professional, causing you unnecessary pain and suffering. This could involve inadequate fillings, the removal of an incorrect tooth, or anaesthetic not being administered correctly.
Whilst the majority of patients will make a full recovery, there are some patients whose injuries will be permanent and life changing. As such, it is important to us at Calio Claims that you are appropriately compensated for your injury, to allow you to move on with your life. We regularly help clients make claims for all kinds of dental negligence, including but not limited to:
- poor standard of treatment
- incorrect treatment
- delayed diagnosis
This list is not exhaustive, and if you believe that you have received treatment that was below the standard you would reasonably expect, which has resulted in injury, pain or suffering contact us today. We have assisted a number of clients with varying degrees of injury as a result of negligent dental treatment and can advise you on the strength of your case.
What to do if you have been affected by dental negligence
If you have suffered an injury as a result of dental negligence, you might be wondering what to do next, and how to give your claim the best chance of success. We recommend you diarise the events following the alleged negligence including any conversations with your dentist and it’s helpful if you keep a note of the dental practitioner whom you hold responsible for the negligence.
We can request copies of your dental and medical records on your behalf. There is a three-year time limit on personal injury claims, and for us to assess when this three-year period would have begun, you should get in touch us as soon as you suspect there may have been negligence.
