Get Recovery After a Botched Dental Procedure
If you believe your dentist has committed malpractice, call 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.
