What could I claim for?

When it comes to dental negligence compensation claims, there are generally two ways we value your claim. First, we have General Damages that can cover any injury, suffering and loss of amenity caused as a result of the negligence. This can also include any impact on your social and domestic life, and any psychological and cosmetic issues as well.

Secondly, we can look at Special Damages which can cover any losses or expenses incurred as a result of the dental negligence. If you have had to take time off work, lost your job, needed further treatment, or incurred any care costs, you could be eligible to claim these expenses back.

Dental negligence compensation claims will need to have evidence of the negligence and, in most cases, victims will need to be independently assessed by an expert to create a statement to aid your claim.
