Bitten by the dental negligence bug? Claim compensation now

September 3rd, 2013 by Andreas Xavier in Public records. Topics: , ,



When you visit the dentist for a check up or for treatment, your dentists owes you a service which involves providing the correct treatments and performing the correct procedures. If your dentist makes a mistake or causes damage which could have been avoided, you could be entitled to claim compensation.


A dental negligence claim is more complex than other types of claims, so it is important that you seek advice from a specialist solicitor. More insight can be seen by visiting the Axiclaim website. You need to be able to prove not only that the injury or damage was the fault of the dentist, but also that the mistake would not have been made by a competent dentist, which can be difficult if you are not knowledgeable about the dental industry.


Possible damage caused by dental negligence can include painful injuries to the mouth, a healthy tooth being unnecessarily removed, the wrong treatment being administered, and any psychological after-effects such as anxiety or even the development of a phobia. You may have been pressurised to undergo an expensive treatment which was not necessary, or a problem you have had may have been misdiagnosed and/or mistreated, resulting in further damage.


When your dentist is going to administer a treatment to you, it is highly important that they discuss it with you at length first. You should be given information on all the negative aspects as well as the positive so that you can make an informed decision on whether or not you want to go ahead with the treatment. Your dentist must inform you of all possible treatments before going ahead with anything. If you have undergone an unnecessary treatment when a simpler or more pleasant treatment was available, and you were not made aware of it, you may be able to claim compensation.


In order to be able to make a claim, you must have received dental treatment which is below the standard you would reasonably expect, and you must have suffered some sort of injury from it. This is because of the complex nature of dental negligence cases. However, any claim you do make will be treated with sensitivity, because poor dental care can result in many problems for patients, some of which can be psychological.


If you are going to make a claim, it is important to make it as quickly as possible whilst your injuries are still new and the details of the case are still fresh in your mind. You need to try to collect as much evidence as you can to back up your claim, so any photographs of your injuries and other types of helpful evidence you can get hold of are important. It can be difficult in some cases to have a successful claim because dentistry often involves a lot of delicate processes, and even the most talented dentists can make mistakes. If the injury you have suffered was unavoidable, then you may not be able to make a claim. However, if you think the injury could easily have been avoided, or you think your were misinformed about the treatments you were undergoing, you may well have a strong case which could gain you the compensation you need. This can cover any future medical costs to deal with your injury and more.
