Have you ever broken a tooth? It can happen in all kinds of ways. Sometimes a tooth can be saved if you can take the tooth to a dentist in good time. In some instances you might be able to pop a clean tooth back in (although you should never do anything other than rinsing it in water for a few short seconds). If this isn’t possible, popping it in some milk and getting an emergency appointment is the best option.
There are times when you may not be able to get a tooth put back into your gum. Perhaps it has been out for too long; in other cases it may simply refuse to take. If this should occur you might end up with a gap for a time while a false tooth or implant is made to take its place.
What might this cost you?
As you can imagine, breaking one or more teeth can be an expensive situation to fix. You can end up with a big gap, especially if you have lost teeth in the front of your mouth. This can make you very self-conscious as well, which won’t do your self-esteem much good.
Now imagine you have lost one or more teeth as a result of an accident of some kind. Sometimes things happen that are no one’s fault. However, in other cases someone else may have done something that resulted in your tooth loss – a loss you now have to pay to fix. You may have been hit by a car, or hurt by something at work if you were working with machinery and something flew up and hit you in the mouth. There are all kinds of possibilities here.
Does this mean you could get broken teeth compensation?
Some people certainly have managed to win broken teeth compensation but in every case they have been able to prove that negligence was involved. This means their lawyer was able to provide enough evidence to support the fact that someone else was to blame for the tooth loss.
If you believe this might work in your case as well, you should call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500. This is the best way to make sure you get the no-obligation advice you could really benefit from in this particular situation. Don’t let the chance to claim pass you by.
