Dental Negligence Claims

Dentist & assistant

Has a treatment session with your dentist not produced the results you expected or has it gone badly wrong?

For most of us a trip to the dentist is a daunting prospect and we are hoping it won’t be a painful experience. Dentistry is a precision skill and if it goes wrong it can leave lasting effects. If you have experienced negligent care we can help, we have years of experience dealing with dental negligence claims, and have experts who can provide you with the best advice.

If you are unhappy with the treatment you have received from your dentist, please contact one of our dental negligence claims advisers to discuss this further.

What can we do to help with your dental claim?

It is important you seek advice as soon as possible as legal action must be taken within three years (in rare cases you can exceed this) of the date you first knew, or could reasonably have been expected to know, that you have suffered an injury caused by someone else’s fault. If the case involved a child, the three years begins to run from their 18th birthday. Whilst the Court has discretion to allow cases to go ahead out of time, this is rarely exercised. You should always seek legal advice as soon as possible there, particularly as there is a vast amount of work to be done before bringing a claim for medical negligence.
