At the Dental Law Partnership, we take every individual claim for dental negligence extremely seriously and believe that, if you have had the wrong tooth extracted or are suffering as a result of a negligent tooth extraction, that you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence.
Who was at fault for the wrong tooth extraction?
Firstly, we will help you to determine who caused the incident and who is at fault . In the case of wrong tooth extraction, the fault would generally lie with the dentist who removed the wrong tooth. It is the dentist’s responsibility to correctly identify your dental issues and treat you accordingly, delivering a good standard of care.
When did the wrong tooth extraction incident happen?
As with all claims, there is a time limit on when you can claim your compensation for wrong tooth extraction so it’s important to know exactly when the incident took place. The last thing you want to do is submit a strong claim, only to then realise that you were too late. The Dental Law Partnership are equipped with years of experience when it comes to dental negligence claims and so will be able to tell you whether you are still within the time constraints for claiming for a wrong tooth extraction. Simply get in touch, today.
What does my wrong tooth extraction compensation claim include?
A wrong tooth extraction compensation claim will cover both the physical and any serious mental impacts of your injury. As well as awarding you compensation for the long-term effects that you may suffer as a result of this dental negligence, your claim can also cover expenses associated with your injury. This can be anything from the costs of any additional dental treatment that you needed after the incident occurred, to counselling costs for helping you to deal with the trauma associated with a dental issue like this. You can also claim for travel expenses as well as loss of income if you have been out of work for a long period of time as a result of your injury, whether that’s due to your physical or mental health.
