Compensation for failures in root canal treatment

Undertaking any type of dental work is never a pleasant experience, but with careful and regular dental care we can always hope to avoid a trip to the dentist. There are different types of dental treatment that you might have to undertake if you are the victim of dental health issues, and if the situation with your teeth becomes very severe then you may find that you need to undergo a root canal treatment which involves a complicated surgical procedure.

Root canal treatments can be incredibly painful and they also involve quite a serious operation - this means that they need to be undertaken with great care by a fully qualified medical practitioner. If you feel that you have been the victim of negligence in this instance, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

Who might I look at claiming against in this instance?

In general any mistakes which are made during dental surgery are either the direct responsibility of the dental surgeon or perhaps the dental assistant, depending on your circumstances. If your injuries have been sustained during surgery through a surgical error then your compensation claim could focus on the surgeon. Alternately if you have sustained an infection through poor hygiene or poorly maintained utensils then you could be eligible to claim directly against the dental assistant for negligence. 

What are some examples of compensation claims of this type?

You could make a number of different compensation claims for root canal treatment depending on any injuries that you sustain. Some common examples of claims that you can make include:

  • Injuries sustained during negligent surgery
  • Injuries sustained through failed anaesthetic
  • Injuries sustained through improper examination of x-rays
  • Injuries sustained through surgery performed on the wrong tooth.
