Here at Gregory Abrams Davidson LLP, we have noticed an increase in claims concerning dental negligence.
Examples of dental negligence include a failure to treat tooth decay, nerve damage caused during dental treatment, a failure to properly undertake root canal treatment leading to the loss of the tooth, orthodontic errors, incorrectly fitting crowns / bridges or poorly designed implants.
At Gregory Abrams Davidson LLP, we have a specialist team of qualified Solicitors experienced in dealing with dental claims. Although all funding options will be considered, the majority of our cases are funded by way of a Conditional Fee Agreement (No Win No Fee).
If a case is accepted, the client’s dental records will be obtained and a dental expert instructed to prepare a medico-legal report. If this is supportive, then a Letter of Claim will be drafted and sent to the dentist.
The dentist (usually through his insurers) will then have 4 months within which to investigate the dental negligence claim and provide a Letter of Response. Under Court rules this Letter of Response must either admit or deny the claim giving specific reasons if there is a denial.
We will not only claim damages for injuries suffered as a result of the negligent dental treatment, but will also seek to recover any financial losses incurred, for example loss of earnings or travelling expenses. Importantly, we will also seek to include in the claim the cost of any restorative dental treatment (such as dental implants) which is required as a result of the negligence.
Therefore if you believe you have suffered an injury as a result of poor dental treatment, we would recommend that you contact us to arrange a free consultation with a specialist dental negligence Solicitor.
