Like many personal injury firms, we practice in the area of medical malpractice. But unlike some others, we have also enjoyed success in the representation of clients with injuries or damages resulting from dental malpractice.
Our firm is fortunate in having a consulting dentist available, which has enabled us to successfully assess and evaluate cases of dental malpractice–a problem which unfortunately happens all too frequently.
SIX-FIGURE SETTLEMENT FOR DENTAL MALPRACTICE VICTIM
In one case, our client, a lovely lady in her mid-60's, needed a tooth extracted. She had a history of rheumatic fever. This means that she was especially vulnerable to dangers from infection, and under applicable dental protocol in effect at the time, the dentist was to administer extra doses of antibiotics before removing the tooth, not just afterwards. Unfortunately, our client’s dentist failed to follow this procedure, and as a result, our client developed an infection in her system that attacked her rheumatic heart valve, necessitating open heart surgery.
We successfully negotiated a six-figure settlement that enabled our client to purchase an annuity providing her ongoing comfort and security.
