Claims for an infection after a wisdom tooth removal

Having your wisdom teeth removed is never an easy or pleasant task. In many situations you will be having them removed because they are already causing you problems, and as such you may find that the extraction procedure is not always that easy. Although wisdom teeth removal is a common procedure, it’s also one that can be quite dangerous if the appropriate precautions aren’t taken, and in this situation you could be left with an injury.

If you do suffer from an injury as the result of the negligence of another person, then you could consider a compensation claim to cover any costs that you have incurred throughout the process.

WHO MIGHT HAVE MADE AN ERROR TO LEAD TO MY INJURIES?

In general the person who is responsible for a clean wisdom tooth removal will be either your doctor or dental surgeon, depending on your circumstances and the way that you are having your teeth removed. If you are having them removed through surgery then chances are that you are undergoing quite a serious operation and in this instance it’s crucial that the appropriate precautions are taken.

In the same situation even if you are having them taken out in the chair it’s crucial that hygienic equipment is used and that you are appropriately dealt with after the treatment to help reduce the risk of infection and any associated problems.

WHERE MIGHT I MAKE A CLAIM AS A RESULT OF THIS ERROR?

You could be eligible to claim in this situation for a number of different causes and these include:

  • Claims for a failed wisdom tooth removal
  • Claims for damage to surrounding tissue during a wisdom tooth removal
  • Claims for using unhygienic surgical equipment
  • Claims for failure to adequately clean the area
