Frequently Asked Questions
What counts as a cosmetic dentistry claim?
Cosmetic dentistry is normally done to improve the physical features of a patient’s teeth. Patients can opt for a crown or brace to create the ideal smile. However, sometimes these procedures can cause harsh damage and soreness if the crowns or braces aren’t fitted properly.
If this has happened to you then do not hesitate to contact us today to speak to one of our experts.
What counts as a oral cancer claim?
A diagnosis needs to be made as soon as possible when it comes to oral cancer. If you have visited your dentist with ulcers, lumps, or red and white patches in the mouth and weren’t diagnosed efficiently or referred for assessment, this could be a huge risk to your health. A dentist should be qualified to see the signs of oral cancer and carry out assessments properly.
If you have suffered a delay in oral cancer diagnosis, contact our expert team today for advice or to begin your claim.
What counts as a nerve injury claim?
Nerve injuries occur after faults during oral surgery. The most common mistakes take place during a tooth extraction treatment. If you experience symptoms such as loss of feeling, a tingling and burning sensation in the mouth, or uncontrollable saliva then you may have been the victim of medical negligence.
If you have suffered nerve injury at hands of your dental healthcare professional, then get in contact with Claims24 for support and advice on making a claim
What counts as a periodontal claim?
Alternatively known as gingivitis and gum disease, if periodontal disease isn’t treated with intense care immediately it could result in major pain leaving you with unpleasant symptoms such as bleeding inflammatory gums. If you have visited your doctor and your symptoms have been left untreated or unidentified, a periodontal disease could develop and cause tooth loss.
Contact our expert solicitors today for support on naming a claim and getting the financial support you need to recover from dental negligence.
How long do I have to make a claim?
You typically have around 3 years from the date the negligence occurred or from the date you were first aware that you had suffered a significant injury or illness due to misdiagnosis to start your dental negligence claim.
There are exceptions to the three-year rule in some cases, so if you think you might have a claim we advise you to contact us as soon as possible so we can determine your chances for successful compensation.
How much compensation could I receive?
The amount of compensation varies depending on the severity of the accident, injuries, and individual situation as each person can be affected differently.
As the amount varies case to case, our personal injury solicitors can assess your situation and provide you with a more accurate quote. For a quick estimate on how much you could be entitled to, why not visit our claims calculator?
