Dental Negligence Lawyers Glasgow, Dundee, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Perth, Stirling & Inverness

The vast majority of dental professionals do a fantastic job looking after our oral health. Unfortunately, the unthinkable can and does happen. Any form of medical negligence is unacceptable and can lead to serious repercussions for the victim, such as ongoing care, support and rehabilitation. Even if an injury is unintentional or accidental, you should not have to suffer the consequences without some form of compensation.

While the law doesn’t step in simply because we suffer pain at the dentists, it does offer us protection if something goes wrong because of a clinical error or some form of malpractice. If you or a loved one has suffered an injury because your dental practitioner was negligent, our specialist dental negligence solicitors can help.

At Jones Whyte Law, we understand that our clients want to avoid a long and drawn-out claims process. That’s why we pride ourselves on using our technical knowledge and expertise in the law of negligence to help our clients achieve the maximum possible settlement in the minimum amount of time.

Dental Negligence Claims in Scotland - Making a Claim Against Your Dentist

While the majority of dentists will carry out procedures to a high standard, if they provide treatment that falls below that standard and causes you an injury, the law entitles you to hold them to account by granting you the right to claim compensation. By bringing a dental negligence claim, whether you were the victim of a misdiagnosis, careless practices or inadequate treatment, not only are you holding a dentist responsible for the harm they have caused you, you are also helping to protect against the same mistakes happening again.

Making a dental negligence claim in Scotland can be complex. As well as navigating personal injury law and the claims process, it is also vital to have an understanding of accepted dental practice. This is because whether or not a dental professional acted negligently and therefore caused you to suffer an injury must be clearly established, which requires an understanding of the professional medical standards dentists must uphold. Only then, if you have a convincing argument and supporting evidence, will you be entitled to compensation.

How much compensation you are entitled to for suffering dental negligence depends on the particular circumstances, such as the severity of your injuries, your scope for recovery and the impact your injuries have had, and will have, on you. As well as for the pain and suffering of the injury itself, it is also possible to claim for future care, loss of earnings and delays in treatment.  

Our team of experts has experience in dealing with all manner of medical and clinical negligence claims, including dental negligence cases. It’s this expertise that can help you get your desired results and compensation. Please contact us to discuss your options, free of charge, and find out what we can do to help.
