Attorneys For Dental Malpractice In New Orleans
Legal Assistance When Errors By A Dentist Lead To Serious Injury
Several times a month, we hear from New Orleans area residents who have obtained care from a dental professional that they allege was negligent. And in many instances, this care can be referred to as Dental Malpractice.
Dental malpractice occurs when there is a failure on the part of a dental professional to accurately identify and correct difficulties relating to oral well being, or where that same professional injures a patient during a dental procedure.
Dental professionals have a responsibility to impart a level of care to the patient, in addition to acquiring informed consent from a patient. If one or both of these aspects of care are missing, then there is the possibility that the patient has been exposed to substandard care.
This substandard care may include deferring proper treatment, making errors during surgery, making inaccurate diagnoses, and, in some cases, not making a diagnosis when one was obvious.
In order for a dental malpractice case to proceed and be successful, the dental practitioner must have behaved in a fashion in which a practical and prudent practitioner would not have. Not only that, but there must have been noteworthy damage or injury to the patient during this process.
These types of cases can frequently be very confusing to the average person, because they involve a complicated presentation of facts that require certain relationships to be established between the negligent act and the harm inflicted.
We seek to streamline and facilitate this process for the client so that these connections can be made without any undue stress on the part of the patient.
An important aspect of this process is the documentation kept by the patient. Like personal injury litigation, the better the evidence, the easier it is to establish cause. That is why as a patient, you should keep a clear record of all dental services you have received, and note any resulting negative symptoms as a result of those services.
