    What is dental negligence?

    Dental negligence, which is also referred to as dental malpractice, is the term given when an avoidable injury was caused by a dental professional who did not provide proper care. Any case involving a poor standard of service on the part of a dentist, which has resulted in avoidable harm for a patient, can lead to a dental negligence compensation claim.

    Your dental negligence claim can be made if you have sustained any type of personal injury, which can include psychological suffering or financial loss, as well as physical injury as a result of a dentist’s negligent work.

    Is there a time limit for claiming dental negligence compensation?

    There are time limits for bringing a claim, usually within three years from the time at which you knew you had received negligent dental treatment. Once this three-year deadline has passed, you may no longer be able to claim compensation or sue your dentist.

    How do I prove dental negligence?

    Evidence will need to be collected to prove that your dentist was negligent. There are several factors that must be proven in order to successfully pursue a dental negligence claim.

    These are:

  • Breach of care: It must be proven that the dental professional has breached their duty by failing to deliver the acceptable standard of care
  • Causation: Demonstrating the dentist’s breach of duty
  • Damages: Proving that you have suffered an injury as a result of the dentist’s breach of care.
  • At Ramsdens Solicitors, we can help you to prove that the dental professional who administered your treatment was negligent.

    How much is my dental negligence claim worth?

    The amount of compensation you receive will depend on the complexity of your injuries and the circumstances of your case. We can help you every step of the way to build a strong case that is likely to secure the compensation amount you deserve.
