Examples of Dental Negligence
The majority of dental negligence claims fall into three main categories. These are:
- Careless Work – When a dentist causes you an injury during the process of your treatment, you could make a claim for dental negligence compensation. Careless work could include cutting you with sharp tools, or removing the incorrect tooth during an extraction.
- Inadequate Treatment – Negligence can occur over a long period of treatment or even on a single visit to a surgery. Treatment that is inadequate is where the work carried out hasn’t been up to scratch and often causes further pain. The dentist may not have been trained to carry out the work or were unsure what they were doing. Treatment would only be considered inadequate if another dentist could have carried out the work to the required standard.
- Misdiagnosis – Is when a condition is diagnosed incorrectly and treatment is carried out on this judgement. This can result in further pain for the victim and more work needing to be done to resolve the current issues, as well as any new ones that have arisen.
