Personal Injury Claims
Receiving medical treatment can be a stressful enough experience without the added worries if something goes wrong.
When an injury or illness is worsened or a new one is sustained altogether, while undergoing medical treatment, it is only natural to feel aggrieved and seek compensation. After all, you went in to remove or reduce your ailment not increase or add to it. Dentists, dentistry technicians and other dental hygienist professionals have a duty of care to ensure that you receive the correct treatment in an appropriate manner. If professional standards were not met during your treatment, and you suffered because of this, then you may be entitled to compensation.
Most medical treatment carries some form of risk. However, with the amount of training that medical staff must undergo you should always be able to receive treatment without the worry of worsening your state of health. You could be effectively placing your life in the hands of another person when receiving treatment, so it is vitally important that they treat you in a correct manner and display no acts of carelessness.
Dental negligence can worsen the condition you are receiving treatment for or cause you to sustain a whole new one, which can result in illness, pain, injury, disability, mental health problems or even death. The consequences of dental malpractice can have devastating effects on the victim’s life. If you have sustained injuries due to dental negligence, whether it was while you were treated by NHS dental staff or private medical staff, you are entitled to make a claim.
The amount of compensation would depend of the severity of injury, the amount of earnings lost, any expenses incurred and the requirements of your financial dependents. Dental negligence cases can be tricky as it must be proven that your injury or illness was due to inadequate care or poor judgement. That is why it is essential that you contact a specialist lawyer as soon as you consider making a claim.
