Customer Question

I received a dislocated jaw following a dental extraction in September last year. I did not receive sufficient anaesthetic and I was in agony throughout the extraction.
Do you think a compensation claim would be appropriate?

Thank you for your question.
Assuming no other dentist of ordinary commence would have done what yours did, then yes you have a compensation claim based on negligence. An expert report on the dentists conduct and an expert report on your injuries and prognosis will be required so you should see a solicitor to help you with this.
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
