Dental Malpractice Lawsuits Lawyer
Maintaining your oral health is important. You trust your dentist to ensure you get the dental care you need to prevent health issues. However, in some cases, the dentist or dental team can be the cause of dental or medical problems. When errors or negligence occur at the dentist that cause you or your family members injuries or health issues, our team at Moriarty Injury Lawyer will be on your side to fight for your rights through a dental malpractice lawsuit.
Many dental procedures are routine, and most people undergo them as part of their oral health care without any ill effects. Tooth extractions, dental implants, root canals and anesthesia are commonly performed at dental offices without unnecessary harm to patients. However, when the standard procedures for preventing injury are not followed, patients can be seriously injured. They may need to undergo months of additional medical and dental care, causing them pain, illness, lost time from work and many additional expenses.
