Dental Negligence and Malpractice

Many people are nervous about seeing a dentist, and dentists often try their best to make their patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their visit. In most cases, even complicated dental procedures go smoothly, with little discomfort or pain experienced by the patient. Sometimes, however, a dentist may cause damage during a procedure, causing injury to the patient.

Personal injury caused by a dentist, dental hygienist, or other dental assistant falls under the legal category of dental malpractice. If you have experienced pain or injury from a dental visit, consider consulting an experienced personal injury lawyer immediately. The Waukesha personal injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.® can help you with your case and fight to get you the compensation that you deserve. Contact us today at (800) 242-2874.

Common Symptoms of Dental Malpractice

Poor quality dental care can cause long term injury to the patient. If you or a loved one has experienced any of the following problems, you may be a victim of dental malpractice:

  • Nerve or tissue damage
  • Damage to the oral structure, such as to the teeth, jaws, or tongue
  • Illness or injury from failing to detect an oral disease or from a wrongful diagnosis
  • Wrongful death from improper administration of anesthetic

Why You May Need a Lawyer

If you have received improper dental treatment resulting in injury, a personal injury lawyer can help you gather the necessary evidence to hold your dentist or dental assistant responsible. A good lawyer can gather testimony from expert witnesses who can help to support your case. This kind of testimony can help to show that a dental professional is liable for your injury and can help to secure the compensation to which you may be entitled.
