Injured by a Negligent Dentist? We Can Help You.
Whether it is for a cleaning, a filling, or a routine procedure, most people see their dentists at least once or twice each year and without complications. But when a dentist makes a mistake while treating you, it can lead to serious injuries and long-term health problems.
At John Bales Attorneys, our dental malpractice lawyers know that dentists are held to the same standards for patient care as other doctors. And when they do not uphold that standard, they should be held accountable. If you were injured because of a dentist’s negligence—or carelessness—we want to help you. Call us at (800) 225-5564 or fill out a free initial consultation form.
Types of Dental Malpractice
The dental malpractice lawyers at our law firm handle a variety of dental malpractice claims, including:
- Surgical Mistakes
Dentists use sharp instruments, which means mistakes during oral surgery or even cleanings can lead to bleeding, swelling, and nerve damage that may affect your ability to taste or talk.
- Anesthesia Complications
Many dental procedures are performed with anesthesia, and if the right amount is not used, you could experience severe pain, illness, coma, or death.
Dentists have a responsibility to detect oral diseases, and a misdiagnosis can lead to health problems and worsening of conditions such as oral cancer and periodontal disease.
Dental malpractice also can result in infections from contaminated dental instruments, wrong-site surgeries, failure to obtain your consent before a procedure, and more. When you call us, our dental malpractice lawyers can investigate your injury and determine if dental malpractice may have occurred.
