    The fear of going to the dentist

    Going to the dentist, even for a check-up, is for many people something of a harrowing experience. They feel very vulnerable, and having their teeth and gums poked and prodded is not something they relish. Having an actual procedure done (for example, a filling, root canal or extraction) is something to be dreaded.

    When the thought of using a personal injury lawyer in North Tawton for dentistry claims is a nightmare

    Dentistry has of course come an awful long way over recent decades, and treatments are so much better today than they were 40 or 50 years ago; but even so, that fear, which for some is almost a phobia, doesn’t go away. There are several names for this condition: dental phobia, odontophobia and dentophobia are some.

    But whatever name you give it, it all boils down to the same thing: people who suffer from this phobia literally dread going to see their dentist. For them, even the notion of having to use a personal injury lawyer in North Tawton to make a claim for dental medical negligence doesn’t bear thinking about.

    If you have been injured during a dental procedure, and you are considering launching an injury claim, here are some important points you will have to consider:

    Open Claim Calculator

    • The cause of any injury must be down to a third party;
    • The injury needs to be of a reasonably serious nature;
    • The injury must have been sustained in the last three years; and
    • Proof will be needed of the injury itself.

    Appoint a personal injury claim lawyer of your own choosing

    All dentists are covered with liability insurance, but we would always recommend that you should appoint your own injury claim lawyer. That way, you can ensure that whoever is processing your claim will pursue the maximum amount of compensation available.

    How much is your claim worth?

    To establish how much compensation you may be due, you can use the compensation calculator we have on our website. It will give you an estimate within just 30 seconds.
