Medical Negligence at the Dentists
Posted on 5th December 2018
In a world where social media filters are used on a daily basis to hide how we really look, and HD TV shows all our wrinkles and defects, many of us don’t feel too comfortable out there in the real world, and we decided to have a nip or a tuck, botox fillers, or even dental braces, to give us the perfect smile.
And when implemented properly, I’m sure that most people look perfectly fine, and are happy with the surgeon’s efforts. But what if all didn’t go to plan? Our medical negligence solicitors in Lancaster, Longridge and Garstang, have seen some real horror stories. Things that go bump in the night? How about things that become infected in the night, or even fall off in the night? Our personal injury solicitors in Lancaster, Garstang and Longridge have seen the lot.
On a less scary note, imagine going to your trusted family dentist, and spending your hard- earned money on a pair of dental braces, that your dentist then fails to fit properly. Now due to client confidentiallity, we can't tell you about the medical negligence claims settled by our offices, but that doesn't stop us telling you about a case involving a young lady called Daniella Riches. By the time her case settled, Danielle was 18 years old, and a student at university, but she was only 12 when, in 2012, her dentist, fitted her with braces that were, arguably, fitted incorrectly, so as to leave her, as the years progressed (these things take time) with ‘wonky’ teeth, and severe jaw pain.
After 4 years’ of wearing the braces, and, rather unfortunately, being ridiculed by her peers, Miss Riches thought a second opinion was in order and went to another dentist. Even the best medical negligence solicitors would have been shocked to find that Miss Riches’ braces had actually made her teeth more crooked than they were when she was 12 years old. New braces were fitted and Miss Riches’ teeth were all nice and straight 18 months later… some 6 years after braces being fitted. Solicitors in Preston, Lancashire, MG Legal, will add, however that Dr Waldron, the original dentist, did not at any point admit liability for what appears to be a rather clear cut case of medical negligence, at the hands of a medical practitioner.
Miss Riches received £10,500.00 in settlement of her medical negligence claim, and the matter is now settled.
