Michigan Dental Malpractice Attorney

Dental malpractice often has serious consequences. It can take the form of negligent dental work, failure to treat or diagnose a dental condition, delayed treatment or diagnosis of dental disease, or intentional misconduct. Dental professionals owe a duty of care to their patients, requiring them to conform their conduct to leading professional standards. Failure to meet the standard of care constitutes a breach and can give rise to legal liability

Patients who believe they suffered an injury due to dental malpractice may file a civil action for compensation. However, the burden of proof is on the patient to demonstrate the dental malpractice of the dentist, oral surgeon, or another dental professional. To have a successful claim, the patient must show:

  • A dentist/patient relationship existed
  • The dental professional breached the standard of care
  • Because of this failure, the patient suffered an injury or harm
  • Specific damages resulted from the malpractice

Compensation in Dental Malpractice Cases

When the patient demonstrates that the dental professional committed malpractice, they may seek compensation for their injuries in the form of economic and non-economic damages. 

Economic damages or special damages are easily determined. Examples of economic damages include:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Past and future time off of work

Non-economic damages, also known as general damages, are harder to quantify. Examples of non-economic damages include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Physical disfigurement
  • Emotional and mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
