Dental Malpractice Attorney

Dental Malpractice occurs when the treatment provided by a dentist or dental assistant falls below the acceptable standard of care, causing serious personal injuries. Dentists and oral surgeons are considered health care professionals and must provide a certain standard of care when providing dental services to a patient. Just like medical doctors, dentists and oral surgeons have a duty to uphold that standard of care in his/her specialty. A breach of this duty, resulting in injury to a patient can result in what is generally referred to as dental malpractice or dental negligence.

What is a dental malpractice lawsuit?

As with any healthcare provider, dentists must follow a professional standard of care when working in and around a person's mouth. Dental malpractice, like other malpractice cases, involves negligence on the part of the dentist. In other words, the dentist must be responsible, either through careless action or careless inaction, for the injuries his or her patient received. The dentist must also be acting outside the normal professional standard of care. A dentist’s conduct is compared to the conduct of other dentists to determine if he or she was insufficiently incompetent. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of a dentist’s negligence, you should contact a dental malpractice lawyer to determine if you can file a dental malpractice lawsuit.

What are my options if my dentist was negligent?

You should contact a dental malpractice attorney to discuss your options and determine if you are able to file a dental malpractice claim.

What is necessary to review before it can be decided if there is cause for a dental malpractice lawsuit?

The records of the negligent dentist and all subsequent treating dentists must be received and reviewed. All x-rays before and after negligence need to be reviewed as well.

How much does a personal injury attorney charge for dental malpractice cases?

Personal injury lawyers' work on a contingency fee basis. This means that they only collect a fee if they are able to get money for you.

What should I be paid for when seeking compensation for dental malpractice?

Many victims of dental malpractice have been able to successfully receive compensation for their injuries and the costs of any future treatment associated with the malpractice incident. This compensation can be a great way to offset the costs of surgery, medication, treatment, or other measures necessary to recover from dental malpractice. With an attorney on your side, you may be able to get this type of financial support.
