Claims for damage to a tooth during dental surgery

A visit to the dentist is not something that many people enjoy, but unfortunately it’s a fact of life and as such it’s a place that many people actually end up visiting quite regularly. Providing you keep six monthly check-ups, your teeth should be kept in a good healthy condition, but if you fail to do this then you may find that you require dental surgery to fix any problems that you are experiencing.

If you have recently undergone dental surgery and feel that you have been left with injuries or that your existing injuries have worsened as a result, you could look to make a claim for compensation.

WHO MIGHT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS TYPE OF DAMAGE?

In general if you have sustained an injury as the result of dental surgery then you will most likely look to make a compensation claim against your dentist or anyone who has actually performed the surgery. It’s the responsibility of your dentist to ensure that they perform any dental surgery to the best of their ability to ensure that you are left in the best possible condition, and if you feel that they have failed to do this you could look to make a compensation claim.

IF I AM INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT LIKE THIS, COULD I MAKE A CLAIM?

You are always eligible to make a compensation claim in a situation where you feel that you have been the victim of another person’s negligence, some examples of this include:

  • Claims for mistakes made during surgery
  • Claims for mistakes made during the anaesthetic
  • Claims for the incorrect dental surgery being performed
  • Claims for a mis-diagnosis
  • Claims for the use of improper equipment during surgery
