Dental Negligence

Claiming Compensation

If you have received treatment which has resulted in injury within the last 3 years, you may be entitled to claim compensation. You are only entitled to claim compensation up to 3 years from the date of your treatment or from the date you become aware you have suffered a loss.

The majority of us might hate going to the dentist, but we all know that it is necessary to keep our teeth clean and healthy. However, when things go wrong it can really affect us.
