What to do if You Are Injured as a Result of Dental Malpractice in San Antonio

Being a victim of any type of medical malpractice is a serious matter. When you go to your preferred doctor in San Antonio—regardless of whether it is a dentist, optometrist, or surgeon—you are putting trust in them to perform medical procedures on you. If this trust is broken through a case of malpractice that leaves you injured, you may not only be skeptical of doctors in the future, but you also may be missing out on significant parts of your life. Perhaps you had substantial medical bills to correct the malpractice, or your quality of life is significantly impacted due to the outcome of the malpractice.

What is malpractice?

Malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor, or other medical practitioner causes harm or injury to a patient because of negligence or omitting important information. This could be because of a misdiagnosis, failing to diagnose, failing to manage your health or an error in aftercare following a procedure or surgery.

Dental Malpractice

Though dentists may not be the first doctors you think of when you think of the probability of malpractice, it is just as likely that someone tending to your oral health can perpetrate this crime. Dentists and oral surgeons are required to comply with medical standards when they work on a patient. If these standards are overlooked, then injury or harm can occur, and dental malpractice can be alleged. The results of dental malpractice can impact the overall function of your mouth and jaw, could mean that you were not properly anesthetized during a procedure, or could leave you with fewer teeth than you are supposed to have.

Who should I call if I feel that I am a victim of malpractice?

If you’re the victim of dental malpractice, you should contact an attorney who is well versed in dental malpractice injuries in San Antonio. Speaking with a reputable San Antonio lawyer is one of the best ways to seek compensation or justice for the damages you have incurred. A lawyer can help you prove the fault of the dental practitioner and assist in winning back what should be yours.
