Dental Malpractice Attorneys Chicago

Shea Law Group Has Been a Family Owned Practice Since 1997

While a visit to the dentist may not be the most enjoyable experience, most of the time the professional performs checkups and any other procedure effectively and competently However, at times, he or she can make a mistake that may have serious consequences for you, the patient.

Have You Been Injured Due to Dental Malpractice?

Dentists and their staff go through extensive education and training in order to stay abreast of the latest treatments and procedures for dental and oral diseases. In addition, they are required by law to meet a certain standard of care, one in which patients also expect them to meet.

Unfortunately, negligence can and does occur in a dentist’s office that breaches the standard of care, as well as a patient’s trust. Such negligence can result in various mistakes made during an otherwise routine procedure, including:

• Failure to diagnose an oral disease
• Anesthesia errors
Errors in interpreting X-rays or other tests
• Injury to nerves in the mouth
• Procedure complications
• Infections

Such mistakes can result in minor health issues like broken teeth, or more serious problems, like the development of oral cancer or even death. Other effects include:

• Nerve damage
• Disfigurement or scarring in or outside of the mouth
• Unnecessary loss of teeth
• Loss of taste or sensation in the mouth
• Financial strain (medical bills, loss in wages)

Hold the Right People Accountable

When you have faced physical, emotional and financial suffering due to an error made during a dental treatment, you should not be held accountable. Dentists and dental staff are expected to work in order to uphold the standard of care and provide effective treatment for all patients, and should take responsibility when they fail to do so. You may be eligible for compensation for your injuries — an attorney will assist you in a dental malpractice lawsuit.
