Dental Malpractice occurs when a dentist or other dentist office staff member performs a negligent or reckless act that results in an injury to the patient. If during the course of a dental exam, procedure, or surgery you experienced a significant injury that would not have otherwise resulted if the examiner or dentist had done his or her job properly, you may be able to sue the dentist and/or dental office. Additionally, if a dentist or dental examiner failed to diagnose or treat a medical issue that would have been found or treated by a dentist or examiner exercising a high level of medical proficiency, and you suffered an injury as a result of this failure, you may also have a case.
Dental malpractice attorneys work with patients who have been injured as a result of a dentist of dental office's staff member's negligence or recklessness. Dental malpractice attorneys assist patients who have suffered traumatic injuries and don't know where else to torn. These attorneys help their clients find alternative medical treatments if necessary, and may file a complaint against the dental office responsible for your injuries. First and foremost, they will work to make sure you are made whole after your injuries. Secondly, they will work to make sure the types of injuries you suffered at the hands of the dental office and staff will never be repeated.
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury in a dental office a dental malpractice lawyer can provide significant help. For example, your dental malpractice lawyer will help you get better treatment from an alternative dentist. Next, your attorney will make sure you don't have to pay for the negligent dental work you endured, and can further stop additional bill collectors that may attempt to collect from you while your lawsuit is pending. Finally, your dental malpractice lawyer will negotiate a settlement with the dentist or dentist office that caused your injuries. If a favorable settlement is unattainable, your dental malpractice lawyer will file a lawsuit and fight your case in court.
