Dentists may require up-to-date orthodontist injury advice if they have been injured while at work. If someone you work with was negligent or if your employer breached employment and health and safety laws then you could be able to make a no win, no fee* claim for compensation. Accident Advice Helpline is here for you if that is the case. We are a legal firm, and specialise in providing the best legal representation to clients across the UK.
Orthodontists prevent and treat dental abnormalities, working with both children and adults on a daily basis. The profession is highly skilled and requires a working environment that is clean and well lit. There are often instruments and other tech located in the room you work in. It is the responsibility of your employer to ensure everything is safe to use and that any dental nurses or other fellow employees are properly trained. You could claim if an apprentice left an object out and you fell over it and broke a leg. A third party could be liable if they contributed in any way to your orthodontist injuries. Call us for the latest orthodontist injury advice.
Orthodontists often work long hours. This can leave them long-term injuries such as back pains and spasms or any other related ailment brought about by standing or crouching for too long or sitting with poor posture. We might be able to claim if your employer gave you a chair that was not suitable for your needs or if you fell from a faulty piece of furniture and suffered severe bruising or other injuries. If you have been injured at work, make sure to update the ‘accident work book’ with details about your accident as soon as possible.
Orthodontist injury advice
The National Health Service (NHS) or the private practice you work for will be liable if they failed in their duty of care. We will make a claim against that third party for a sum of money to cover damages. These damages can cover any out-of-pocket expenses, such as commuting to and from a private centre for treatment or other losses if you have had to take a leave of absence from work. We urge you to make a claim if an accident that was not your fault has put added financial and psychological pressures on you and your family. To register your interest, and to receive further orthodontist injury advice, text “claim365” to 88010.
Am I eligible for a claim?
There is a 3-year deadline for the majority of personal injury claims. Act now so you start proceedings before the deadline passes. It has never been easier to get started.
- A third party must have been at fault. We need to prove that you did not contribute to your injuries and that your employer was negligent. We will do this using important documents and witness accounts.
- We will need a medical record of the injuries you sustained. This will have been completed if you were treated by medical professionals following the accident.
