Have you suffered from Dental Negligence?

Claim MAXIMUM dental negligence compensation today…

Anyone who has had to have any dental procedure or surgery will know how important it is to find an expert dental professional who completes the procedure properly. Whilst dental treatment can involve some pain, negligent dental care can cause ongoing problems or permanent damage, including tooth loss.

When it comes to the dental care you receive in the UK, there is an accepted standard of care that all dentists should adhere to, so if any of their actions or inactions fall below that expected level, and it causes you pain, injury or damage as a result, you may well have a case for a dental negligence claim.

Here at Hampson Hughes Solicitors, we have an expert clinical negligence team who offer a wealth of experience in claims related to negligent dental professionals.

What can I make a Dental Negligence Claim for?

Many individuals find themselves unsure on whether the dental care they receive would be considered negligent. We understand that many of our clients may be new to the claims process and so we offer a free consultation to help you to get advice on the likelihood of a successful claim and to get a sense of your legal options going forward.
It is helpful if you can obtain as much documentation and other evidence as possible in order to help us assess your dental injury claim and the chances of a favourable outcome. That said, our dental negligence lawyers can help you with the gathering of evidence should we take on your claim, so the most important thing is to get in touch with us and get the benefit of our legal insight in this area.
For a level of initial insight, here are some of the most common dental negligence claim types:

  • Poorly fitted crowns and bridges
  • Errors with implants or veneers
  • Surgical error resulting in nerve damage
  • Delayed or missed diagnosis of gum disease
  • Incorrect tooth extractions
  • Poorly performed root canal procedures

This list is not exhaustive, so if your particular dental malpractice issue is not on the list, it does not mean that you cannot claim. The best thing to do would be to speak to one of our team of dental negligence lawyers to explore your claim, with our team vastly experienced in dental negligence claims both against NHS and private facilities.

Who can make a dental negligence claim?

Anyone who has experienced negligence at the hands of a dental professional which resulting in injury, dental complications or suffering can potentially make a dental negligence claim. As experienced dental negligence claims solicitors in Liverpool, operating nationally, Hampson Hughes can offer you a free consultation to determine whether you have a claim to make for compensation.

Are there time limits on a Dental Negligence Claim?

When it comes to making a dental negligence claim in the UK, the parameters are the same as any other medical negligence legal issue. The current limit for a claim is three years from the date you became aware of the negligence, with a special provision that if the dental malpractice happened before the claimant was 18 years old, there may be an extension of those limits to three years from their 18th birthday.

Of course, such is the nature of dental injuries that you will likely be aware of many problems within minutes rather than years, but there are certain dental issues such as the unchecked progression of gum disease which may date back years, so it is always worth getting in contact with a specialist dental negligence solicitor in your region to explore the possibility of a dental malpractice compensation claim.

How much does a Dental Negligence Claim cost?

We understand that a major consideration for many people who consider a dental negligence claim is what their legal costs will be. Many of these people have also heard of the No Win, No Fee Claim model, which in legal terms is known as a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA). Hampson Hughes Solicitors is ready to offer this payment type in any case where it fits the financial interests of a client.

Our team of helpful dental negligence solicitors can help you to explore your funding choices and select the best fit for you. There are cases where an individual or family may have a current insurance policy covering legal expenses, while some people have access to Legal Aid, but in many cases, utilising a No Win No Fee model is the best fit.

Should we take on your legal representation on a No Win No Fee model, we are able to recover most legal costs from the defendant, protecting your financial interests. With most claims, if that compensation claim isn’t successful, there are no costs for our client. This is how it’s come to be known as a No Win No Fee claim.

We would be happy to explore whether it is possible to offer our expert legal assistance for a dental negligence claim, with many clients in Liverpool, Manchester, London and across England and Wales having benefitted from our legal services in this area.

What evidence is needed for a dental negligence claim?

The evidence usually required to support a dental negligence claim will usually include:

• Your dental records, x-rays and details of the negligent treatment you received
• Images or other records of the damage caused by the negligence
• An assessment by a dental expert
• Receipts or proof of expenses or lost income as a result of the negligence

As experienced dental negligence solicitors in Liverpool, operating across England and Wales, we pride ourselves on offering a high level of service and seeking the MAXIMUM compensation amount for every client.

What is a dental negligence claim worth?

The amount of compensation that you will be awarded if your dental negligence claim is successful will depend on the circumstances of your case. The factors usually taken into account when deciding on a claim value amount can include:

• The physical severity of the injury or consequences caused by the negligence
• Any long-term impact of the negligence and the problems it caused for your health or daily life
• Any psychological issues caused by the negligence
• The cost of remedial dental work or other procedures needed to fix the issues caused by the negligence
• Any expenses for costs you have had to pay out due to the negligence e.g. missed time at work, specialist consultancy fees, travel costs for specialist care
