Undergoing dental treatment can be a very traumatic experience for any person. Unfortunately dentists like all Healthcare providers can be negligent. Within our Clinical Negligence Team we are proud to employ a full time dentist who is able to assess the validity of any dental negligence claim.
Whilst there are recognised complications that can occur when undergoing dental treatment our team can assess whether such complication has arisen as a result of negligence on the part of the dentist.
Such problems can be nerve damage, wrongful extraction, failure to diagnose gum disease, infection, incorrect placement of implants or indeed simply a poor quality of service.
Can I claim
As a result of our employment of a qualified dentist we will be able to assess immediately whether your claim has merit. We can evaluate your claim and consider for you various heads of damages as discussed in the following paragraphs and possibly a claim for restorative work.
What can I claim for
The amount of compensation (damages) you receive is made up of:-
- “General Damages” which compensate you for pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life(PSLA)
- “Special Damages” which consist of your quantifiable financial damages. They sometimes include medical expenses, transport cost, nursing or child care costs (in some cases) and a claim for loss of earnings if appropriate.
- “Smith and Manchester Award” This is where an award of damages is made for the weakening of the Claimants competitive position on the open labour market.
We would welcome the opportunity of discussing all aspects of your claim with you. We can discuss its merits free of charge. Please feel free to contact us on any of the modes of communication set out on our website. Not only can we discuss the merits of your claim but also methods of funding.
