New York Dental Malpractice Attorney
Like medical malpractice, dental malpractice is a case against a dental professional who acted in a careless, negligent or reckless way, and caused injury to the patient. Negligence may be defined as the failure to use that degree of care that a reasonable person would have used under the same circumstances and dental professionals have the duty to not only protect you, but also to provide the level of care their position demands.
The Law Offices of Kenneth A. Wilhelm is familiar with the many mistakes dental professionals can make and we know that injuries can cause significant harm. We will do everything we can to help you get the maximum amount of money you deserve. We can even come to you at your home, hospital or on the job. If you don’t have a doctor to treat you for your injury, we may well be able to find doctors that can treat you without you paying them until the end of the case, and we can keep insurance adjusters from calling you.
Cases that have been won involve the following:
- Nerve injuries that affect patient’s ability to taste
- Nerve injuries that cause permanent numbness in the tongue (in part or in whole)
- Complications arising from carelessly completed crowns and bridges
- Failure to consider patient’s medical history prior to acting
- Failure to detect serious disease such as cancer
- Complications from anesthesia
- Unnecessary extraction of teeth
- Extraction of incorrect teeth
