How does dental negligence work?
A trip to the dentist is already nerve-wracking enough. Often, a majority of us feel overwhelmed with having to sit in the chair again to have our pearly whites checked out. But in some cases, these situations can become even more challenging when unnecessary negligence is involved on behalf of the dentist.
You should be able to place trust in your dentist – just like any other medical professional. But in all of these contexts, negligence can and does occur.
If your procedure resulted in an unnecessary or unexpected outcome, or you feel you were not satisfied with your experience, you may be entitled to make a compensation claim.
What you need to know
In order to make a claim of this type, you’ll need to prove that your dentist has breached their duty of care. The result must also have inflicted significant physical or financial harm. Unfortunately, proving grounds of medical negligence is difficult – this is where our experts come in.
The laws around this space are challenging to navigate. At Paramount Lawyers, we know all the ins and outs of how medical negligence claims operate, allowing you to place trust in a team that knows what they’re doing. We know your rights, the settings these outcomes often take place in, and the excuses that often arise as a result. So, let us get you the compensation you deserve.
Have you experienced any of these situations?
If you have undergone a dental procedure and walked out of the clinic with one or more of these circumstances, you may have grounds for compensation:
- Breaching duty of care: The dental staff did not provide good communication or diagnosis; they may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs; they did not follow the set rules for the field.
- Uninsured or unlicensed: If your dentist wasn’t accredited or legally fit to conduct the procedure at all, you may be able to make a claim.
- There was unreasonable damage: Be it injury or an unsuccessful outcome, you may be entitled to compensation. This often includes implants, cosmetic dentistry, restorative procedures, nerve damage and gum disease where your original issue was worsened, or new problems occurred as a result.
- Anaesthesia or prescribed medication was not administered correctly: If you received the improper dosage or entirely incorrect, you may be able to make a claim.
