How to Make A Claim For Dental Negligence in Northern Ireland

Professional Support

If you ask us to represent you in bringing a claim for compensation for dental negligence, we will stay by your side every step of the way to make sure you have the support you need.

Letter of Claim

We will start by advising your dental practice and their insurer that you intend to make a dental negligence claim.  They may admit liability straightaway, in which case, your claim will be about exactly how much compensation you will receive.

Consultation with Dental Experts

We can arrange for you to be examined by dental experts who will be able to prepare a report setting out what has happened, what treatment you might need and what your prognosis is.

Evaluating Dental Negligence Compensation

This will form the basis of your claim, and you can expect to be compensated for the pain and suffering you have undergone as well as for any financial losses, such as the cost of treatment to rectify problems, loss of earnings if you have had to miss work and expenses such as travel costs.

We are often able to reach an agreement by way of negotiation so that you will not have to go to court. If we do not think that you have been offered enough money or the other side does not admit liability, we will prepare a strong case on your behalf for court and instruct an advocate with expertise in dental negligence claims to represent you at the hearing.

The court will start by setting a timetable for what will happen in the run-up to a final hearing. This will include swapping evidence such as medical reports and witness statements. It is a requirement that you attempt to resolve matters during this pre-trial period wherever possible.

How long will dental negligence claim solicitors take to settle my compensation claim?

If it is possible to negotiate a settlement, then your claim could be dealt with within a year or less. However, if your claim is complex, if liability is not admitted or if the other side does not offer a high enough sum in compensation and a trial is needed, then it could take longer. We can give you a rough estimate of the likely time taken once we know the extent of the injuries you have suffered.

How much compensation will dental negligence solicitors win for me?

How much dental negligence compensation you will receive will depend on the severity of your injuries as well as the costs involved in rectifying matters. Once we have an idea of what has happened to you, we will be able to discuss the amount of money you might expect to receive by way of compensation.

Is there a time limit for bringing a dental negligence claim?

You will usually have three years from the date of the negligent treatment in which to commence a claim for dental negligence compensation. If you did not become aware of your injuries until later, then the three years will run from the time when you became aware of them.

In the case of a child, the three years runs from the date of their 18th birthday.
