Dental Malpractice

 
At Carroll, Kelly, Trotter, Franzen, McBride & Peabody, we provide the highest quality counsel and advocacy when a malpractice suit is brought to a dentist or dentistry.

MANY PATIENTS FILE DENTAL MALPRACTICE SUITS WITHOUT FULLY UNDERSTANDING THE LAW.

Dental malpractice occurs when a dentist fails to properly treat or diagnose an oral health condition, and the patient suffers from a serious, lasting injury or death.
TO PROVE MALPRACTICE, THE FOLLOWING PILLARS MUST OCCUR:
  • A relationship between the dental professional and patient existed
  • The professional was negligent in his/her duties and administered care that a competent dental professional would not have
  • The negligent actions caused an injury
  • The injury led to damages
Oftentimes patients misinterpret malpractice law because they do not have a clear understanding of the four pillars that must occur to prove malpractice. Due to misinterpretation of the law, the damages requirement is often embellished to include short-term pain or injuries that were unrelated to the dental procedure that occurred. Thus, it is imperative that dental providers analyze and clearly communicate the fact patterns to substantiate a strong defense.
