Sue the dentist

Dental services must be safe and of high quality. Unfortunately, there are cases when dentists neglect their professional duties, which leads to harm to the health of patients. In such situations, you have the right to seek protection of your rights in court.

In what cases can a dentist be sued?

There are many grounds for filing a claim against your dentist. Here are some of the most common:

  1. Inadequate provision of medical care:
  • This may include errors in diagnosis, treatment, prosthetics, surgery, etc.
  • For example, if your dentist misdiagnosed you and resulted in improper treatment, you may be able to sue him or her.
  • Or, if the dentist damaged a nerve while extracting a tooth, resulting in ongoing pain, this may also be grounds for a claim.
  1. Poor quality materials:
  • Using low-quality or expired materials can lead to serious health problems.
  • For example, if you were given a filling made of poor-quality material, which later fell out or led to the development of caries, you can sue the dentist.
  1. Failure to comply with sanitary standards:
  • This may lead to infection of the patient.
  • For example, if you contracted hepatitis C from a dentist’s unsterile instruments, you may be able to sue the dentist.
  1. Unreasonably high prices:
  • If you think you have been overcharged for dental services, you can appeal it in court.
  • Make sure you receive a clear estimate and understand all prices before starting treatment.
  1. Rough attitude:
  • The dentist has no right to insult, humiliate or cause physical pain to the patient.
  • If your dentist treats you harshly or cruelly, you may be able to sue him or her for emotional damages.

These are just some of the most common grounds for filing a dental claim. Contact a qualified healthcare law attorney for advice regarding your specific situation and to determine whether you have grounds to file a claim.

Why do you need to sue your dentist?

Filing a claim against a dentist can have several purposes:

  1. Receive compensation for damage caused to your health: this may include medical expenses, lost wages, moral damages, etc.
  2. Hold the dentist accountable: punish him for unprofessional behavior and prevent similar cases in the future.
  3. Warn other patients: Warn other people about the possible risks associated with treatment from this dentist.

Can you sue a dentist without a lawyer?

Theoretically, you can sue a dentist without a lawyer. However, this is a very complex process that requires knowledge of the law, the ability to collect evidence, and correctly draw up documents.

If you have been harmed by negligent or improper dental care, it is important to contact a qualified health law attorney as soon as possible.

A health care lawyer will help you:

  • Understand your rights and legal options: A lawyer will explain to you exactly what rights you have as a patient and what legal actions you can take against the dentist.
  • Evaluate your case: A lawyer will carefully review your case to determine whether you have sufficient grounds to file a claim.
  • Gather evidence: A lawyer will help you gather all the necessary evidence, such as medical records, x-rays, photographs, and eyewitness statements.
  • Draw up a statement of claim: a lawyer will draw up a clear and detailed statement of claim for you, which will be filed with the court.
  • Represent you in court: A lawyer will represent you in court, negotiate with the dentist’s representatives, and protect your rights at every stage of the legal process.

It is important to know that:

  • There is a clearly defined period within which you can file a claim against a dentist. Contacting a lawyer as soon as possible will give you the best chance of success.
  • The legal process can be emotionally draining. A health law attorney can provide you with emotional support and help you cope with stress.
