Dental Negligence

Mr J attended his dentist for the removal of his lower right tooth. After the extraction, the dentist made Mr J aware that he had accidentally cut his lip, which he immediately treated with numerous stitches. For a number of days, Mr J was in serious pain and could not work or eat anything.

Mr J also struggled to speak for many weeks, which was particularly demeaning as he was employed at a call centre and therefore had to be taken off the phones and given desk duties. Mr J was then informed that he would be left with a permanent scar on his lip. People would constantly ask him what had happened, making Mr J very self-conscious. We were successfully able to recover £3,750 for Mr J.
