Dental Negligence Claims

Oral health is a pivotal component of overall wellness. When dental professionals falter in their duty of care, the repercussions can be more than just a compromised smile; they can lead to enduring pain and trauma.

At Anthony Joyce & Co Solicitors, we are committed to providing expert legal advice and representation to those who have suffered due to dental negligence. We guide our clients through the complexities of the claims process to secure the compensation they are due.

Dental negligence may present itself in various ways, each with its own set of challenges and potential for harm:

  • Infections because cleanliness wasn’t maintained or care after a procedure was poor.
  • Damage to nerves from common procedures that didn’t go as planned.
  • Not being happy with how treatments look afterwards.
  • Treatments like root canals, implants, or fillings not done right or not working.
  • Taking out the wrong tooth.
  • Pain from veneers that don’t fit right.
  • Hurting gums and lips because teeth-whitening products were used the wrong way.
  • Problems with braces or other teeth-straightening treatments.

What Compensation does a Dental Negligence Claim Cover?

Claims for negligent dental treatment primarily encompass two areas of loss:

  1. Pain and Suffering:

    • The physical pain and emotional distress resulting from negligent dental work are compensable. This includes consideration for the severity and duration of suffering, as well as its impact on your daily life.
  2. Specific Financial Costs:

    • Financial costs associated with the negligent dental treatment can be claimed, covering both past and future expenses. This may include:
      • Medical Expenses: Costs for corrective treatments, ongoing dental care, and any other related medical expenses incurred.
      • Transport and Accommodation: Costs incurred for traveling to and from medical appointments, and accommodation expenses if out-of-town medical care is needed.
      • Future Expenses: Anticipated costs for future dental care, therapies, and other related treatments required due to the negligence.

The extent of compensation is calibrated to reflect the specific harm suffered and the unique impact it has had on your life.
