Astute attorneys seek damages for injuries caused by negligent oral surgeons

Oral surgery, like any kind of healthcare, requires that the person performing it have the necessary training, possess the skill expected of an oral surgeon in the community and adhere to the relevant safety protocols to promote the best chance that the procedure will be successful. For instance, before performing the operation, the oral surgeon should ask about any medical conditions that might adversely affect you during the procedure, evaluate whether the procedure is appropriate for you and inform you of the risks and possible side effects. The surgeon should also discuss any other suitable alternatives before obtaining your consent to the surgery. 

Failed oral surgical procedures can result from various instances of failure to adhere to established standards of care. These can include the following:

  • Inadequate preoperative planning and assessment
  • Failure to obtain informed consent
  • Surgical errors committed during the procedure 
  • Use of defective or inappropriate equipment or materials
  • Failure to take steps to avoid infection and other complications during the procedure
  • Failure to provide appropriate post-operative care

If you experience undue pain or other ill effects from oral surgery, we will retain experts who can analyze whether it was the result of malpractice by the oral surgeon or by his staff. If so, we will bring claims against the culpable parties.

 Attorneys seek compensation for injuries resulting from poorly performed oral surgical procedures

  • Emotional distress and loss of the enjoyment of life
  • The need for additional surgeries to repair the damage

Once we are retained as your attorneys, we will document and present the evidence of your injuries and their consequences, either during negotiations or at trial, so as to obtain the best settlement or verdict available.
