Rancho Santa Fe Dental Malpractice Lawyers
Get Recovery After a Botched Dental Procedure
Dentists deal with a very sensitive part of the body. Many people are intimidated at the thought of going to the dentist and having their teeth worked on. Dental professionals have a duty to uphold the high medical standards of their profession, and when that bar has not been met a Rancho Santa Fe dental malpractice attorney should be consulted.
If you believe your dentist has committed malpractice, call (858) 247-3828 to discuss your situation with our knowledgeable legal professionals.
Determining Dental Malpractice
It can, unfortunately, be difficult for a patient to determine when a dentist has committed malpractice. If the dental professional botched a surgery or caused an injury, they can claim the pain you experience is normal and attempt to fix the problem on your next visit. If you have experienced pain that seems beyond the norm after a dental procedure, consider visiting a different dentist and getting their take on the situation.
Dental malpractice can include:
- Errors administering anesthesia
- Failing to check for, or diagnose oral cancer
- Removing the wrong tooth during a tooth extraction
- Damaging a nerve
- Over-preparing for dental surgery, increasing the patient’s expenses
- Creating a fistula
Like other forms of medical malpractice, failing to inform patients of risks or not taking the proper steps to prevent problems down the road can also be grounds for a lawsuit. In these situations, an attorney should gather evidence, including expert witness testimony, in order to prove to a court that you were a victim of malpractice.
