Compensation Claims in the UK

Dental Negligence Claim Solicitors – in the UK we are lucky enough to receive a high standard of dental care- but, unfortunately this standard is not always met. You always trust that your dentist (or any medical professional) will provide an excellent standard of care to perform procedures but if the professional fails to meet that standard a claim for dental negligence can and should be made.

Common Types of Negligence

There are unfortunately quite a few common types of dental negligence. Some examples include inadequate or unnecessary treatment, general carelessness (poor surgical procedures, causing injury with dental instruments, unsafe surgeries), failure to correctly diagnose (error in diagnosis leading to increased pain and suffering), failure to prescribe or improper prescriptions (the wrong prescription, or wrong quantity). These procedures are unacceptable and not only should it be brought to public attention so that there is general awareness but a victim does deserve compensation.

Developments in Dental Negligence

While dental surgery has drastically changed over the last few years, the competition has also increased radically. Due to all of this, access to dental records is much easier- therefore it is now easier to pursue a genuine dental negligence claim and get the help and expertise of other dentist who would have been more reluctant to “criticise” a colleague before. We all know that dental treatment is costly and the cost of fixing it can be even higher. Pain and suffering can also be excruciating and there is generally time lost from work (either recovering, or receiving treatment). Our Medical Negligence Lawyers can help you claim compensation for pain and suffering, costs of treatment, loss of earnings, and any anticipated expenses that are the direct result of dental negligence.

Why Hire Us?

Consulting our Medical Negligence Lawyers can make this process much easier for our clients. They know all of the proper protocol and procedures taking place within the legal system in order to make this simpler for their client. Hiring one of our Medical Negligence Lawyers will advise you and provide you with information and medical expertise that you would not have should you try to file the claim alone.

Your Medical Negligence Lawyer will ensure that you are falling within the statute of limitations and do extensive research to prove your case for you. While compensation claims do typically take place in front of a judge, your Medical Negligence Lawyer can help mediate with the party at fault, to make a settlement outside of the court. A medical professional (and their legal team) will typically prefer this, due to the fact that it will keep the case out of the public eye and perhaps not disgrace their name as badly.

There are time limits which must be followed.
