    Dental nurse accident claim


    If you are making a dental nurse accident claim, then it can help if you have some evidence to support your claim. Evidence can take many different forms. Here are some things that can help support your claim.

    Photographs or documented evidence

    It can help enormously if you have any photos of your accident or the area where it happened. Even a photo taken on a mobile phone can be of use.

    If you don’t have any photos of the scene, photos of your injury can also be used to support your dental nurse accident claim, as they can show the extent of your injury and how you have recovered.

    If your accident took place at a public venue, then you may be able to get a copy of the accident report or incident log completed by venue staff at the time. This should include details of your accident and possibly sketches or a map showing the area.

    Witnesses

    If you don’t have any physical evidence, then witnesses we can ask about your accident could help your case. These may be friends you were with at the time, someone who gave you medical treatment, or even a member of staff who was on hand to deal with the incident.

    If you have contact details for the witnesses, we can speak to them on your behalf to get their information.

    Medical records

    Your medical records will provide an important insight regarding the seriousness of your injury and how long it has taken you to recover. Medical records may come from the hospital or local doctor’s surgery where you were first treated, from your own doctor or from other specialists such as physiotherapists or counsellors.

    Other documents that could help your dental nurse accident claim

    Other things that can help support your dental nurse accident claim can include wage slips documenting loss of earnings during your recovery, receipts for the cost of travelling to medical appointments, or other costs incurred due to your injury such as childcare or home help services.

    These can all help us determine how much compensation we could fairly claim on your behalf.

    Claims can usually be made any time up to three years after the incident happened, so we appreciate that you may not always have witnesses available, or have kept receipts for that amount of time.

    Making a claim

    If you think you have a valid claim for compensation because you were injured and someone else was at fault, then it is worth contacting Accident Advice Helpline to see if we can help you.

    There is no obligation to proceed with a dental nurse accident claim, even after speaking to one of our advisors, so you have nothing to lose. You can contact our 24-hour helpline by dialling 0800 689 0500 from your home phone or calling 0333 500 0993 from your mobile phone.
