Compensation for jaw damage after wisdom tooth removal
Wisdom teeth are a part of life, but unfortunately for some people, when they start coming through there simply isn’t enough room in their mouth to accommodate them. Wisdom teeth removal is not unusual, in fact in many situations it’s quite common – but that doesn’t mean it’s not without risk and potential problems that can occur if there are problems with the procedure.
The wisdom tooth removal process differs depending on how deeply embedded your teeth are and how your jaw is structured – for some people it’s a simple task done in the chair, for others it requires general anaesthetic and surgery – but regardless of the procedure that you need, if you have been left with jaw damage caused by negligent surgery, you could look to make a claim.
What are some common examples of jaw damage?
There are a number of situations where jaw damage can occur and these include:
· Situations where nerve damage has occurred from surgery
· Situations where an infection has occurred after surgery
· Injuries caused by negligent surgery
· Errors which have led to damage to the jaw bone
· Errors which have led to damage in and around the jaw area.
Who could have been responsible for an injury of this type?
If you have been the victim of a negligent wisdom tooth removal, chances are that you will look to make a claim against your surgeon who may have made an error during removal. If you feel that they haven’t taken the appropriate precautions, or that you have been a victim of their negligence, then you could consider a claim for compensation to cover any costs that you have incurred here.
