Few of us enjoy visiting the dentist but patients are entitled to receive treatment that doesn’t cause them to suffer unnecessary pain or injury.
Dentists – both private and NHS practices – owe a duty of care to their patients. If they fail to reach those standards, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
A dental negligence claim can arise from:
– failure to diagnose a dental illness or a misdiagnosis
– failure to adequately perform dental surgery or other treatment
– causing an injury due to treatment
– carrying out unnecessary treatment
– failed dental implants
Regardless of the type of claim that you may have, our lawyers know that mistakes by dentists can have significant consequences.
The dentists who run the surgery are also responsible for all of the acts or omissions of the medical and non-medical staff working there such as nurses and hygienists.
Our lawyers are experienced in representing patients who have been injured as a result of negligent dental treatment and helping them to get compensation for their injuries and other financial losses.
I appreciated the down to earth/no jargon approach.
We can meet you at our offices, your home or wherever is most convenient for a free initial appointment.
Our lawyers, based in Ipswich, Felixstowe, Hadleigh or Woodbridge, will discuss the strengths and weaknesses of your case, and we will advise you whether you could be entitled to compensation and how to pay for our services. In most cases, we are able to offer clients an insurance protected No Win No Fee agreement.
