The Claimant, a 52 year old man, received £5,000.00 in respect of injuries arising from the extraction of his UL6 root on 29 June 2016. It was his case that the technique used by the Defendant during the extraction was negligent and that as a result, he developed an oro-antral fistula. He suffered the discomfort and inconvenience of this for over 1 year. He subsequently had surgery under general anaesthetic to repair the oro-antral fistula on 10 July 2017. Following this, his symptoms resolved.
