Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Can you share with me what State you are in?
Yes, it is very possible you could have a medical malpractice claim against the dentist and their office. There are four basic elements to a medical malpractice case. They must all be present to form the basis for a claim, and an attorney must prove them all to succeed in a medical malpractice case. The four elements are duty, breach, causation, and damages. If this is present, you can sue them for damages. Before you go to your appointment next Friday, try and consult with a medical malpractice attorney this week and consult with them, about what happened and let them see and document what happened, since they can take the case on a contingency basis, which allows them to represent you and only would require you pay, if they are able to recover for you.
Have you presented them with a demand to pay your hospital bill?
