The short answer is yes, you can. But what type of information do you need to prove your case? Below are the basics of what you’ll need:
Proof of the negligence: This might be photos, witness statements, testimony from family members who saw or knew about the incident, a diary etc.
Proof that you suffered as a result of poor dental services: This can include testimony from another dentist, your own sworn testimony, dental records etc.
There are many stories of someone being injured by a negligent dentist or dental assistant. For instance, one woman reported that during her cleaning, the dental tech accidentally stabbed her in the chin with some sort of tool. Though the injury was painful at the time and of course, should never have happened, it healed up with a week and there was no permanent damage.
Patients commonly report that during cleanings and other procedures, the dentist accidentally causes painful damage to gums. Again, this usually heals up within a week or so. In order to sue for dental malpractice, an injury must be more severe than this with ongoing pain.
If you think you may have grounds for a lawsuit, then it’s best to discuss your case with an OC dental malpractice lawyer. You can often get a free 30-minute consultation. This gives you the opportunity to discuss what happened and find out for sure if you should move forward with a lawsuit.
These are simple basic guidelines. For more info, contact an oc dental malpractice lawyer.
