Compensation claims for a failed wisdom tooth removal

Dental care is something that many of us value with great importance and that’s why a regular trip to the dentist is something that’s on the cards for many of us. Although in general good dental care will ensure that we don’t need to have any serious work done, unfortunately this is not always the case and one situation where this is evident is when you take wisdom teeth into consideration.

Wisdom teeth are a problem for most individuals, mainly due to the fact that they don’t often grow properly and therefore can cause dental problems, especially on contact with other teeth. In this situation you may require wisdom teeth removal and this can be a dangerous operation. If you sustain injuries as a result, you may look to make a compensation claim.

WHO COULD HAVE BEEN AT FAULT OF MY INJURIES?

If you have sustained injuries during wisdom teeth removal then you will most likely look to claim against anyone whose negligence has led to your injuries. This could include a surgeon if you have undergone a serious medical procedure to remove your teeth, or perhaps a dentist if you have had your teeth taken out in the chair.

WHERE MIGHT I LOOK TO MAKE A CLAIM FOR COMPENSATION?

Compensation claims can be made in a wide range of different circumstances, but generally if you have been the victim of negligence then you could look to make a claim. Some common circumstances where this might occur include:

  • Removal of an incorrect tooth
  • Failure to apply appropriate anaesthetic
  • Failure to use steralised equipment
  • Failure to adequately examine a wisdom tooth
  • Claims for errors made during surgery
