Dental Claims And Orthodontic Claims

In order to successfully bring a dental negligence claim for compensation, you must be able to prove that your dental care has resulted in an injury that has been caused directly through substandard dental care or negligence.

The standards you can expect to receive are outlined in the General Dental Council’s guidance “Standards for Dental Professionals”, although they do not attempt to define what the acceptable standards are for each technical procedure.

The Judge in your case will be persuaded that without a reasonable explanation for a deviation, a breach of these standards which has led to pain and suffering on your part, will be evidence of negligence. An independent dental expert’s report on your current condition and future prognosis will then be used to ascertain the appropriate level of damages to be awarded to you in compensation.

We have helped many clients who have suffered a personal injury after visiting their dentist or orthodontist due to negligence in relation to the following conditions or procedures:-

  • Tooth decay
  • Failure to properly consent to treatment
  • Gum disease or periodontal difficulties
  • Root canal therapy or Endodontics
  • Orthodontics
  • Wisdom teeth
  • Cosmetic dentistry and restorative treatment
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Veneers
  • Implants
  • Caps

At Thomson & Bancks, you can be assured that our medical negligence specialists will deal sensitively and efficiently with your claim for compensation or that brought on behalf of a loved one’s Estate. The civil law attempts to place people back in the same place as they would have been had they not been injured by a medical mistake or left untreated so they have not fully recovered as they should have done.

Where that is not possible, an increasing amount of damages are payable for where the consequences have been more serious for you. Also, your expenses and financial losses caused by the injury or non-recovery of your condition are claimable, for instance, if you are not able to return to work or require extra services because of a resulting disability which would have been avoided had there been no negligence.

If you or your family have been affected by medical negligence, please call our specialist Solicitor, Lucy Sherry, on 01242 235250 to find out if you may have a claim. We will offer you a first free interview to learn about the next steps and our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements for funding your legal claim.
