Dental Malpractice Lawyers in Michigan
A trip to the mouth doctor is not most people’s idea of a good time. Still, we grin and bear it because dental wellness is an important facet of our health and because we trust that the dentist or orthodontist will take care of us (ideally precluding future appointments). Unfortunately, that trust can be misplaced. Dentists are no more infallible than any other kind of doctor. When they make a mistake that harms you or a loved one, it may not be clear where to turn.
Morgan & Morgan’s dental malpractice attorneys are here to help. Our firm works tirelessly on behalf of dental malpractice victims as well as people hurt in car crashes, slip-and-falls, and other personal injury cases. With our assistance, you may be able to recover significant financial compensation for your medical costs, lost wages, and other damages.
What Are Some Examples of Dental Malpractice?
You may be thinking to yourself, “Going to the dentist is supposed to hurt. Since when is that grounds for a lawsuit?” But pain is not the same as harm. Here are some common scenarios that can constitute dental malpractice:
- Complications related to anesthesia (e.g., too much, too little, or the wrong drug)
- Wrong procedure performed
- Infection caused or worsened by a procedure
- Failure to diagnose oral disease such as cancer
- Object mistakenly left in patient’s mouth
- Wrongful death
Why Hire a Michigan Dental Malpractice Lawyer?
If you’ve been injured due to medical malpractice on the part of a dentist, orthodontist, or oral surgeon, it may be tempting to accept the first settlement offer you receive — but doing so will rarely lead to the best outcome. A dental malpractice lawyer can make sure you receive full and fair compensation. The dental malpractice attorneys at Morgan & Morgan can also:
- Determine if you have a case, i.e., whether your dentist breached their duty of care
- Enlist expert witnesses to establish and explain how care was breached
- Show that the breach of care directly caused you harm
- Gather and present evidence to bolster your claim
- Guide you through the process from start to finish
Best of all, there’s no risk to you: We work on a contingency fee basis, meaning there’s no cost to get started, and we get paid only if you win.
