Make a claim
A dental extraction is the permanent removal of the teeth from the socket, which should be relatively straightforward.
However, errors can occur when dentists extract the incorrect teeth or fail to advise the patient of alternative treatment options which may save or prolong the longevity of the tooth.
Why use Oakwood Solicitors Ltd to make your Wrongful Extraction claim?
We have a dedicated team of solicitors and paralegals who have many years’ experience between them in running cases of this nature. They are highly trained to deal with all aspects of Dental Negligence claims.
We want to ensure that clients are not overwhelmed by legal jargon, medical terms that they don’t understand and to allow the claims procedure to be as transparent as possible.
How is my case funded?
The majority of Dental Negligence cases are funded by a Conditional Fee Agreement (CFA), more commonly known as a ‘no-win, no fee’ agreement. This means that there will be nothing to pay upfront and nothing to pay if the claim has been lost. If you are successful in your claim, a deduction of 25% of damages will be taken to cover the success fee and the shortfall in legal fees.
It may also be the case that an After The Event (ATE) insurance policy will be obtained to cover the costs of expensive medical reports and investigations. If an ATE insurance policy has to be obtained the cost of the same will be discussed with you at the appropriate point.
The cost of the ATE insurance policy is again taken from your damages and only payable if you are successful with your claim.
