The principles associated with dental negligence are the same as the area of law associated with medical negligence.
Key criteria when looking at all the facts provided by a client about potential medical negligence would cover the following issues:
Obviously you need an expert lawyer who will engage highly specialised medicolegal dental specialists to comment on the particular facts of a case to assist with investigations regarding the liability of the dentist. At Gerard Malouf and Partners we have run hundreds of cases successfully against dentists over many years and have found significant support being provided by responsible members of the dental profession who are prepared to go up against other defendants and major insurance companies notwithstanding that they are colleagues of the dentists.
You might find it rather strange but based on statistics that have been compiled by the HCCC known as the Health Care Complaints Commission, there are far more claims generally of a minor nature against dentists as compared to medical practitioners.
Unfortunately we often can’t help a lot of people with genuine cases against dentists because of the extensive costs associated with litigation however we will endeavor to do our best every time by giving complimentary advice to a new client about the best avenue to take whether it be trying to negotiate a result directly with the dentist in question, or initiate formal legal proceedings where the claim is sufficiently large or refer the matter to the health care complaints commission for investigation.
All dentists must have up-to-date professional indemnity insurance and accordingly can be sued even if the dentist has no personal assets or becomes bankrupt.
