Dental Law Partnership Win £10,000 Dental Compensation for South West Man
A man from the South West who suffered 4 years of dental negligence has won £10,000 compensation thanks to the work of the Dental Law Partnership, a UK based law firm specialising in dental compensation claims.
The specialist dental compensation solicitors were presented with evidence which proved that the client had suffered as a result of the original dentist’s treatment.
The sum was awarded in an out of court settlement after years of inadequate dental care left the claimant with infected teeth, requiring extensive corrective treatment.
A series of root canal treatments and crowns which were provided by the dentist were found to be substandard and required the patient to endure a hospital stay. In addition, the man must now undergo further root canal treatment and have crowns fitted to two of his teeth. Another two teeth will have to be removed and replaced with dental implants.
The client said: “I had a car accident in December 2006 which affected some of my teeth. Several were left loose or fractured so in January I first went to see my dentist
“She said I needed to have four root canal treatments and fillings in my teeth.”
This treatment plan was carried out over the course of three weeks and seven separate appointments.
He continued: “I was back at the practice just six days after that period of treatment finished when another tooth broke. Dr R told me I’d need to have a root canal treatment and a crown placed on it, which she did over three appointments in February.”
Only four months later the patient was back to complain about severe swelling on the upper right side of his mouth. A series of X-Rays revealed an infection in one tooth and a poor root filling in another. While the dentist did provide antibiotics to treat the infection, they did not address the substandard root filling.
After still more procedures, the patient visited another dentist with complaints of pain in the upper right side of his mouth, then again just three months later because of the tenderness and pain on the other side of his mouth.
Further X-Rays revealed root decay on treated teeth.
“I went back again in September 2011 because I had a really bad toothache” he said. “I saw a different dentist again who told me my root filling and crown would need to be replaced as they were so poor. I didn’t understand how Dr R could have made such a mess of so many treatments, so knew it was time to get a second opinion from another dentist at a different practice.
“My new dentist confirmed that things were not right and immediately fixed another crown that had come loose.”
Even more teeth would become infected before the patient was referred to a specialist dental hospital the following year. Incredibly, the specialist recommended that all root canal treatments be redone.
After contacting the Dental Law Partnership, the specialist dental compensation solicitors were presented with evidence which proved that the client had suffered as a result of the original dentist’s treatment.
They admitted no liability, but the firm were still able to obtain £10,000 for their client in an out of court settlement.
