File Dental Malpractice Claim  

In the United States, dental malpractice laws differ from state to state. However, some of the common rules apply to all the states and while you can file dental malpractice claim, there are some basic details you need to know.

A plaintiff can file a dental malpractice lawsuit:

  • If an injury is caused due to the negligence of the dentist
  • In case the dentist did not identify an ongoing problem that resulted in a dangerous oral condition like cancer for example.
  • Any act that has been done deliberately to inflict harm on the patient

In dental practice besides being responsible for giving care to the patient, the dentist has to ensure that no adverse reaction occurs due to the care. If there is a possibility of an adverse reaction, the dentist has to inform the patient before the procedure so that the patient can decide whether to proceed further. If such a thing does not happen, the patient can file a dental malpractice lawsuit.

If a patient wants to pursue a lawsuit for dental malpractice, then he or she should establish that the dentist or the dental care provider has behaved in such a way that no other dental professional would have behaved under normal circumstances and as a result, the behavior caused injury to the patient. This is very important for any case to be validated in the medical industry.

The injury caused should also be serious in nature and only if there has been a considerable damage along with an equal amount of recovery period. will the case be validated. Every dentist other than rendering their services to the patient by performing dental procedures also needs to take the written consent of the patient to perform certain procedure. In case the written consent has not been taken, the patient can sue the dentist for performing a procedure against his or her wishes.
