Filing Dental Malpractice Claims: Everything You Need to Know About It

Filing Dental Malpractice ClaimsA lot of people may not be aware of it but you can actually file a dental malpractice claim, provided that sufficient grounds have been established. So, what constitutes dental negligence and when should you file a claim? Here are some things you need to know.

Dental Malpractice Explained

Dental negligence can best be described as a significant injury resulting from:

  • Negligent or reckless actions while administering oral and/or dental treatments
  • Failure to diagnose and/or treat existing oral conditions
  • Any intentional misconduct that resulted in significant injury and/or damages
  • Incompetence of your dental health care provider

Considering this definition, some of the most common reasons why people file dental negligence claims and lawsuits include the following:

  • Accidentally extracting a good tooth
  • Permanent numbness resulting from root canal operation
  • Permanent nerve damage resulting from oral surgery
  • Injuries to the lip, tongue and jaw nerves
  • Failure to diagnose oral cancer and other oral diseases
  • Wrongful death

Filing a Dental Malpractice Claim

When do you need to file a malpractice claim against your dental health care provider? Well, you can consider filing a lawsuit if you have been injured while receiving dental treatment. Under the law, you may be entitled to receive monetary compensation for the pain and suffering the negligence caused you. If it can be proven that your dental health provider violated the treatment standards that should have been given to you, you may receive compensation for punitive damages as well.

In filing a claim, you will need to:

  • Ask your dentist for a copy of your records and the results of the tests performed on you.
  • Secure a written statement from another dentist regarding your condition.
  • Check your insurance policy if your injuries are covered under your policy.
  • Consult a competent medical malpractice lawyer to help you assess your case.

You deserve to receive due compensation for all the pain and suffering your dental health care provider put you through. Make sure you get it.

If you have reason to believe that you have been the victim of dental malpractice, please feel free to contact Remer & Georges-Pierre, PLLC at (305)416-5000 or visit www.miami-personalinjurylawyers.com for a free consultation.
