Claims for anaesthetic error during dental treatment

Regardless of the type of dental treatment that you require, if you are looking to have serious dental work done then chances are that you will need to undergo anaesthetic at one point or another. Although in many cases this is an incredibly common and relatively safe procedure, unfortunately this is not always the case and when mistakes are made in this situation it can have a direct impact on the health of anyone involved.

If you feel that you have been the victim of an anaesthetic error which was caused through no fault of your own, then you could look to make a claim for compensation to cover any loss of income or medical costs that you have incurred.

WHO MIGHT HAVE MADE AN ERROR IN THESE CIRCUMSTANCES?

In any situation an anaesthetist is generally responsible for ensuring that you are given the right dosage of anaesthetic at the right time. In the case of a dentist, the dental practitioner themselves will often take on this role and as such they must ensure that you are given the right anaesthetic, for the right amount of time and that it is delivered to the right area. Any errors in this environment can have a major impact on you and could be the direct responsibility of your dentist.

WHAT ARE SOME COMMON EXAMPLES OF WHERE I COULD MAKE A CLAIM?

In general there are a number of different situations where you could consider making a claim and these include:

  • Claims for the wrong dosage of anaesthetic
  • Claims for the use of unhygienic equipment
  • Claims for an allergic reaction to anaesthetic
  • Claims for pain during an operation
  • Claims for failed administration of anaesthetic
