    A lot of people think about medical doctors when it comes to suing for medical negligence and having to get an injury lawyer in Thames Ditton. Another type of medical professional that may cause injuries to patients are dentists. There are plenty of people who have been injured by their dentist and therefore have to make a claim against them  Below are some of the things that you will need to do to prove that your dentist harmed you and make a claim.

    Existence of duty by a dentist needs to be proven to your injury lawyer in Thames Ditton

    You have to prove the dentist has a duty to your care. It is implied by the relationship between the dentist and patient. You need to show that the dentist was treating you at the time that you were injured.

    Care standard breached needs to be proven to your injury lawyer in Thames Ditton

    The next thing you have to do is prove that the care standard was breached by your dentist. This is defined roughly as what is clinically recommended and acceptable, based on the circumstances.  If the dentist was doing something that they should not have been doing, that is something that could be a reason to sue your dentist.

    Next you have to prove that you were injured by your dentist. This is not really very hard to prove since most people choose to sue a dentist due to an injury. But if you were not taking care of your teeth, it could be hard to prove that they caused your injury rather than the fact that you were negligent in your own care.

    You will need to prove the injury that sustained happened because of the negligence of the dentist. If you have many cavities and you don’t brush very often, and you are injured during your treatment, you may have a hard time proving that it was the dentist’s fault because you didn’t take care of your teeth and gums.
