Can I sue my dentist for not spotting symptoms of oral cancer?
If you have been unfortunate enough to suffer from oral cancer and you believe that your dentist failed to spot the symptoms early on, you may be entitled to compensation and be able to make a dental negligence claim. Some of the main reasons people make a claim against their dentist include:
For misdiagnosis, late diagnosis or a complete failure by the dental professional to diagnose oral cancer, which results in avoidable injury, pain or suffering
For financial loss as a result of having to seek further treatment for oral cancer due to mistakes made by a dental professional
For loss of earnings if unable to work as a result of dental negligence
For physical and psychological trauma suffered as a result of dental negligence
