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.
Should you believe that you have suffered sub-standard dental care, you should contact our dental negligence solicitors to discuss the details of your case. 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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

• Receipts or proof of expenses or lost income as a result of the negligence
If you choose Hampson Hughes to represent you in your dental negligence claim, we can talk you through the entire process of making a claim, from the evidence needed, to the expected timescales and an estimate of the amount of compensation you could be awarded, if the claim is successful. 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.

• Any psychological issues caused by the negligence
