Why You Need a Dental Malpractice Lawyer

Having an experienced dental malpractice lawyer on your side when filing an injury claim provides a number of significant benefits. Your legal rights will be protected as you fight to recover maximum compensation for your losses.

An attorney will build the strongest possible case on your behalf and file the claim with the dentist’s malpractice insurance carrier for you. Ideally, they will be able to successfully negotiate an acceptable settlement with the insurer. However, if the insurance company refuses to provide a reasonable settlement offer, your Milford dental malpractice attorney may pursue your claim in court.

Injuries From Dental Malpractice

Dental negligence can cause a variety of health problems, including:

  • Tooth loss
  • Cracked teeth
  • Gum disease
  • Infection
  • Nerve damage
  • Permanent paralysis in the tongue, jaw or lips
  • Jawbone fractures
  • Structural damage to the gums
  • Maxillary sinus exposure
  • Blood poisoning
  • Lost sense of taste
  • Oral cancer
  • Heart attack or brain damage (anesthesia errors), which can lead to wrongful death

Some of these injuries can affect a victim for years or even the rest of their lives.

How Much Time Do I Have To File A Dental Malpractice Claim?

There is a limited amount of time to file a dental malpractice lawsuit, due to Connecticut’s statute of limitations. This law (CGS § 52-584), requires a lawsuit to be initiated within two years from either the date of the injury or when it should have reasonably been discovered. However, regardless of when you discover the injury, there is the statute of repose, which sets an absolute deadline of three years from the incident of dental negligence to bring a claim. As with any law, there may be exceptions depending on your specific circumstances.

Our team has in-depth knowledge of these statutes and how they apply to your claim. This will ensure your lawsuit is filed within the applicable statute of limitations.
