Claims for an infection after a poor dental procedure
Regardless of the type of surgery that you are performing, cleanliness and hygiene are two of the most important elements of any procedure, and if these important parts aren’t taken into consideration you can often find that you are left with far more serious injuries that you had even before the surgery started. Although in many situations dentists are incredibly careful, there are situations where negligence occurs and you can be left with injuries.
Whether it’s through the negligence of the dentist or the dental assistant, if you have been the victim of an infection as a result of negligence on behalf of a dentist, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.
IF I RECEIVE AN INFECTION AFTER A POOR DENTAL PROCEDURE WHO COULD I CONSIDER CLAIMING AGAINST?
If you are looking into a compensation claim then there are a number of different people who you may consider claiming against, but most likely it will be either your dental practitioner or dental assistant. In any event it is their responsibility to ensure that you receive the best possible dental treatment and that any utensils and instruments that are used are cleaned to the highest standards, if this fails to happen you could claim against them for negligence.
WHERE MIGHT I LOOK AT MAKING A CLAIM?
Some common situations where you could consider a compensation claim for a poor dental procedure include:
- Compensation for errors during dental surgery
- Compensation for a lack of hygiene during surgery
