If you’re uncertain what to do, then just call Clearwater Solicitors on 08000 430 430 for free, confidential advice. The following advice could help you support your claim and recover the compensation you deserve:
Make A Written Complaint
Making a written complaint can support your clinical negligence claim. If you make a written complaint before making a dental negligence compensation claim, your problems will be investigated and you will be able to find out what went wrong to lead to your mistreatment.
You should inform the General Dental Council (GDC) if you are concerned about a dentist’s fitness to practice. The GDC should hear about cases of very poor treatment, theft, fraud, intoxication while working, infection risks and any failure for dentists to hold professional indemnity insurance. In serious cases, the GDC can sanction dentists and prevent them from working in the UK. If your case is not serious enough for the GDC to investigate, they will be able to put you in touch with other organisations that can help you.
Keep A Record Of Any Expenses You Face
You may have had to take time off work or missed out on any wages due to your dental treatment, you can recover these expenses in your dental negligence claim. Keep a hold of any wage slips and appointment cards that can support your claim and hand these to your medical negligence solicitors.
The cost of reparative treatment can also be excessively high, but you shouldn’t worry about the cost of this, as you will be able to recover it as part of your dental negligence compensation claim.
