Dentists Can Be Held Liable For Malpractice Too
Physicians and surgeons may be considered negligent whenever an injury or untoward incidents occur during the course or as a result of a medical or surgical procedure. Patients are entitled to assume that they will receive the treatment and care consistent with the standard of care expected from medical professionals.
Aggrieved patients may invoke their fundamental rights not only against medical doctors but also against dentists and oral surgeons. When you are faced with situations involving errors in treatment and care by your dentist, maxillofacial surgeon or your dental hygienist which cause severe or irreversible dental and other health complications to you or your family, Akers Law Offices is here to help and assist you.
JB Akers Has Helped Our Clients Achieve A Successful Outcome
Your claims for malpractice damages against dentists, oral surgeons, orthodontists and other dental practitioners for severe or irreversible dental complications brought about by professional negligence or inadequate treatment will be pursued by our lawyer at Akers Law Offices.
Among the injuries our clients have suffered due to errors in dental care are the following:
- Permanent nerve damage
- Brain damage due to anesthesia malpractice
- Failure to spot the signs of oral cancer in time for effective treatment
- Errors involving crowns and bridgework
- Osteoradionecrosis requiring jaw replacement surgery
- Failure to prevent or treat serious infections
- Cosmetic oral surgery errors resulting in severe pain or injury
Not only do we pursue claims concerning severe or irreversible damages, but we also assist and handle cases for wrongful death damages suffered by dental patients brought about by negligence or improper treatment which oftentimes involve failure to observe proper techniques in administering anesthesia.
There are also cases where we find that the cause of the problem does not necessarily involve the dentist’s or the dental practitioner’s negligence or failure to observe the standard of care but in their failure to obtain the patient’s informed consent to perform a particular procedure which is a very important requirement before the conduct of every medical procedure.
