Claimant Awarded £3,500 in Dental Negligence Case

Our personal injury solicitors secured dental negligence compensation for a client who was the victim of dental negligence.

Incident

In January 2012, our client attended for appointment with his dentist (the defendant) complaining of swelling and pain to the left side of his mouth. He was advised that he had an abscess on his lower left molar (LL6) and the treatment options were root canal therapy or extraction. Our client elected to have root canal therapy, which was commenced that day.

Our client returned a week later for his dentist to complete the root canal therapy.

In March 2012 our client returned following a prolonged period of pain in his LL6. His treatment was taken over by another dentist. Our client was informed the root canal therapy had not been sufficiently completed. Although the second dentist attempted to rectify this, regrettably this attempt was unsuccessful and the tooth was extracted in June 2013.

Successful outcome

The claimant was awarded £3,500 in dental negligence compensation.
