Dental Malpractice Lawyers Florida
A trip to the dentist is not most people’s idea of a good time. Still, we grin and bear it because our health is important and because we trust that the dentist or orthodontist will take care of us (ideally precluding future appointments). Unfortunately, that trust is often misplaced. Like any other kinds of doctors, dentists and orthodontists sometimes make mistakes. When their negligence harms you or a loved one, you may not know where to turn.
Morgan & Morgan’s dental malpractice attorneys are here for you. Our firm works tirelessly on behalf of dental malpractice victims as well as people hurt in car crashes, truck crashes, slip-and-falls, and other incidents. With our help, you may be able to recover significant financial compensation for medical costs, lost wages, and other damages.
What Are Some Examples of Dental Malpractice?
You may be thinking to yourself, “Going to the dentist always hurts. Since when is that grounds for a lawsuit?” But pain is not the same as harm, and procedures must not cause more damage than necessary. Here are some common problems that might constitute dental malpractice:
- Complications related to anesthesia
- Wrong procedure or operation performed
- Failure to diagnose oral disease such as cancer
- Infection caused by procedure
- Object mistakenly left in patient’s mouth
- Wrongful death
Why Hire a Florida Dental Malpractice Lawyer?
If you’ve been injured by dental malpractice, you may be tempted to resolve the case as quickly as possible (which is what the insurance company wants). But by doing so, you could cost yourself tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. A dental malpractice lawyer can make sure you receive full and fair compensation. The attorneys at Morgan & Morgan can also:
- Determine if or how your dentist breached their duty of care
- Enlist expert witnesses to establish how care was breached
- Show that the breach of care directly caused you harm
- Gather and present evidence to bolster your claim
- Gauge the strength of your case as well as its value
- Guide you through the process from start to finish
Best of all, there is no risk to you: We operate on a contingency fee basis, which means there’s no cost to get started, and we get paid only if you win.
