The majority of dental patients treated in Ireland are treated successfully. However, errors can occur and when they do, they can have adverse consequences to a patient. Dental negligence claims arise when a person suffers a personal injury due to incorrect dental treatment.
We have seen several types of injury due to dental malpractice or dental negligence. such injuries include: –
– Injury as a result of poor standard of dental work
– Misdiagnosis or a delay in diagnosis of gum disease or oral cancer
– Incorrect tooth extraction
– Severed nerve claim
– Performance of unnecessary dental procedures
Dental mistakes can psychologically affect a patient depending on their age, gender and the permanency of the injury. From our experience, dental injuries are usually very personal to the individual. They are often very embarrassed by their altered appearance and tend to refrain from social activities, work events, photographs etc. We at Berwick Solicitors, Galway understand that this type of injury can be devastating.
