Miss I needed dental treatment involving the extraction of several teeth and their replacement with partial dentures. Before any procedure had taken place, Miss I had signed a consent form agreeing to the treatment. However, a mistake was made with the form which resulted in the incorrect tooth being extracted without Miss I’s consent.
As well as suffering the unnecessary removal of a tooth which needn’t have been extracted, Miss I then also needed the correct tooth removed, causing further inconvenience and costs. We were successfully able to recover £13,750 for Miss I.
