Claiming for dental negligence

It’s pretty safe to assume that nobody likes going to the dentist. In fact, many of us actively dread the prospect. For the most part, that dread stems from an irrational fear of a procedure that will usually only cause minor discomfort, if any at all. An unlucky few, however, will experience serious illness or painful injury as a direct result of dental malpractice. This can include anything from improper administration of anaesthetic to injury sustained during routine dental procedures like tooth extraction or root canal treatment. Failure to diagnose or treat conditions such as gum disease and oral cancer is also common.


If you have suffered an illness or injury because of medical negligence during a dental procedure, then it’s time to give Your Legal Friend a call. We have years of experience working on medical negligence cases, many of which have involved dental claims. From a legal point of view, we know how complicated these cases can be. More importantly, we understand that they can leave the victim feeling incredibly vulnerable, even embarrassed. The psychological and emotional effects of medical negligence are often just as damaging as the physical impact.

That’s why we are committed to guiding you through every step of the process. We will ensure that your claim is handled carefully and professionally by specialist solicitors, while working alongside medical experts in the dental field, to guarantee the best results for you.

We strongly believe in the value of meeting our clients face-to-face, so that we can make sure all of your individual needs are being met. Because of the personal nature of medical negligence cases, we are happy to visit clients at home if appropriate. That way, you can discuss your claim in the privacy and safety of familiar surroundings, with the support of friends and family. Your Legal Friend will do whatever it takes to make the process of claiming as easy as possible. With no upfront fees or payments necessary, get in touch today to find out more.
