Q. What is Dental negligence?
A. Dental negligence is when you have been the victim of a poor level of care from a dental professional be they in the private sector or the NHS.
Poor care and dental negligence are not necessarily the same thing and negligence is something that is very much defined in law. A key feature of a successful claim is being able to show that you suffered a loss or injury due to the treatment you received.
We have legal experts who are experienced in determining if a case has merit and we would be happy to talk to you to discuss if your individual circumstances may be suitable to make a claim.
Q. Should I contact you?
A. Too many people do not get the compensation they deserve because they do not realise that they have a case! We offer free advice on whether you may have a case and our legal experts will be happy to discuss your individual circumstances. Don’t miss out because you didn’t take appropriate professional advice!
Q. How long will a claim take?
A. This will depend very much on the individual circumstances of the case.
Q. Will I get all the compensation I am awarded?
A. If you have been the victim of a poor level of care from a dental professional then we can help you claim the compensation you deserve. In most suitable cases we will make a no-win, no-fee, 100% compensation claim for any injuries you suffered due to your injury as a result of poor dental treatment.
Q. How much compensation will I receive?
A. Each dental claim is different, and the compensation will vary depending on the severity of the injuries. We evaluate each case to determine the extent of the injuries, any long-lasting effects or impairment, lost time from work and any other related expenses resulting from the incident. In general, more serious or permanent injuries will result in a higher settlement.
Q. Can I make a claim on behalf of a loved one who is no longer with us due to dental negligence?
A. Yes, though this is quite a complicated area of the law. Please call us to discuss your individual circumstances and we will be able to advise you.
Q. Will I have to attend a medical examination?
A. This is a possibility, however we will endeavour to avoid this when ever possible.
Q. Will I have to appear in court?
A. If the defendant denies liability then this will be fairly likely. An independent dental expert will undertake any examination.
