Suffered injury due to dental negligence? If you have, you may be eligible to make dental negligence claims. When you visit your dentist for a treatment or check up, you trust that the dental care professional will carry out the procedure in an appropriate manner. In the vast majority of cases, dental treatments and procedures in the UK are carried out to a high standard. However, there are occasions when unfortunately dental care is not carried out to a suitable standard and patients suffer pain and losses as a result of dental negligence.
As with all other medical professionals, your dentist also owes you a duty of care and his duty includes carrying out dental procedures in the correct manner. If your dentist has failed in his duty of care and has provided dental care that has fallen below the standard that is reasonably expected, you may be eligible to make dental negligence compensation claims. The amount of compensation awarded for dental negligence claims varies depending on several factors. Usually, there are two elements to a dental negligence compensation award. Firstly, you may be entitled to receive compensation for the general damages that you have suffered which includes pain and suffering. Secondly, you may also receive compensation for the financial losses that you have suffered as a result of dental negligence.
Common types of dental negligence compensation claims include:
- dental negligence due to misdiagnosis
- dental negligence due to carelessness
- dental negligence due to inadequate treatment
