How do I make a dental negligence claim


How do I make a dental negligence claim

Dental negligence claims usually must be issued in court within the three years of the date of the negligent treatment or the date the injured person became aware of their injuries or that their injuries may have been caused by negligent treatment. Adverse dental symptoms sometimes don’t occur immediately after treatment and can take some weeks or months to become evident.

It is important that you contact us quickly if you consider you may have a potential claim. If you fail to issue the claim in court within three years it is very likely that you will be barred from bringing the claim. Occasionally there are exceptions to the three year time limit so it is worth seeking advice about this.

Dental negligence claims can be as complex and demanding as any medical negligence case. The first thing to do is to contact an expert law firm like Access Legal which specialises in this work. It is important that your chosen law firm has relationships with the appropriate experts whose evidence will be crucial to your claim.
