Filing a Dental Malpractice Lawsuit

In order to pursue a dental malpractice claim, your dental malpractice lawyer will have to prove medical malpractice occurred.

The first step in proving malpractice occurred is demonstrating that your dentist breached his or her duty of care. Duty of care is a legal obligation to perform within accepted standards in the dental community.

Your dental malpractice lawyer must also show that the breach of the duty of care was the primary cause of your injuries and your injuries resulted in physical, financial or emotional damages.

Our lawyers have the experience you need to have a good chance to recover fair compensation in a malpractice case.

We know how to analyze dental records and collect other evidence to build a compelling case in your favor. We also have access to medical experts who can help determine how malpractice contributed to your injuries.

Dental Malpractice Compensation

Dental malpractice can cause severe injuries that could affect you for months, years and possibly the rest of your life. These injuries could require further dental work and ongoing treatment to have any chance of healing or at the very least, getting better.

That is why the law allows victims of dental malpractice to file a legal claim to recover compensation for the physical, financial and emotional effects of their injuries, including:

  • Past, current and future medical bills
  • Current and future lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Diminished quality of life
  • Disfigurement
  • Current or future lost wages

If a loved one died due to dental malpractice our dental malpractice lawyers may be able to recover wrongful death compensation, such as loss of companionship, lost financial support, loss of insurance and retirement benefits, and funeral expenses.
