Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
You may have a claim for dental malpractice. That is when a dentist breaches his professional duty of care in the services provided to a patient. The claim is dependent on the testimony of expert witnesses who will examine you and your records and testify that, in their professional opinion, the dental care you received was substandard.
Then the remaining issue is damages to repair the shoddy work, lost wages, medicine and pain and suffering.
You would start by retaining an attorney experienced in medical and dental malpractice. They will find the dental experts to help build your case.
If you need assistance finding local counsel try Martindale Hubble (site rules prohibit us from referring specific attorneys) . Many attorneys themselves use this site to locate attorneys outside their jurisdiction or expertise:
http://www.martindale.com/Find-Lawyers-and-Law-Firms.aspxIt is a huge worldwide database searchable by location and specialty. The attorneys are all peer rated. So, they represent the top of the profession.
Are you online with me?
