Does My Situation Qualify for a Dental Malpractice Case?
Dental malpractice is, in basic terms, any dental treatment that is administered beneath the standard of care that leads to an injury. The types of injuries that can constitute malpractice include, but are not limited to:
- Improper root canal treatment or root canal overfill
- Improper removal of teeth or wisdom tooth extraction injury
- Failure to diagnose diseases or dental tumors
- Improper placement of implants (implants placed into nerve canal)
- Improper use of anesthetics
- Open margins or poor bridgework or ill-fitting crowns
- Fractured or damaged jaw
- Numb lip, chin or tongue resulting from dental activities
- Improperly performed dental surgery
- Lingual nerve or mental nerve injury
- Loss of teeth through neglect or improperly performed procedures
It’s also important to remember that there are some strict time limitations on malpractice cases – in New York, you generally only have 2.5 years from the date of treatment to file your case. So if you think you’re a victim of dental malpractice, please contact us as soon as possible.
