The dental claims process
If you ask us to represent you, we will notify your dentist’s insurance company, which is the body that will be responsible for paying you. We routinely deal with large insurers and their legal teams and you can be sure that we will put your case to them in the strongest possible terms.
We have a number of dental experts whom we can call on to prepare a report on your injuries. We will ask them to examine you and use their evidence to support our request for compensation. The report will also help us calculate how much you should be entitled to receive.
Your dentist and their insurer may admit liability for what has happened and agree to pay your claim. If this is the case, you will receive an offer of settlement. We will work out how much you ought to be paid and negotiate with the insurance company to try and secure this on your behalf.
If liability is not admitted or the amount offered is not enough to fully compensate you for your injuries, your case can be taken to court.
We will explain the process to you fully and talk through the strengths and weaknesses of your case so that you can make an informed decision about how to proceed. Even if you decide to go to court, your case could still be settled at any time before the hearing, for example, you could receive an improved offer just days before the court date.
How much is dental compensation?
The amount you will receive will depend on how severe your injuries are, how much it will cost to have remedial treatment and how big your financial losses are.
You are entitled to be compensated for the pain and suffering you have experienced as well as for any lasting psychological issues that you can demonstrate have been caused by your dentist. If you have been left with lasting damage that means you are no longer able to eat certain foods, known as loss of amenity, you can also expect to be compensated for this.
In addition, you should be paid for any financial losses you have incurred. This could be the cost of extra treatment, travel expenses to any dental appointments you have needed and loss of earnings if you have had to miss work.
