Experienced Dental Malpractice Attorneys

Dental malpractice cases are no place for inexperienced lawyers or lawyers who haven’t handled dental malpractice cases before. Don’t lose your case because your lawyer doesn’t know how to spot and prove dentist malpractice.

At Polewski & Associates, we have been handling dentist malpractice cases for over 25 years.  Cases like these:

  • dentist malpractice in poorly designed and installed dental implants
  • dentures that don't fit
  • oral surgery dentist malpractice that ruins a patient's mouth
  • terrible infections
  • nerve damage from negligent tooth extractions or surgery
  • endocarditis
  • patients having strokes during treatment
  • dentist malpractice for extracting the wrong teeth

Do You Have a Good Dental Malpractice Case?

Determining whether you have a dental malpractice case requires research and record review by qualified legal and dental experts. However, there are some very basic rules to help you know whether they have a dentist malpractice case.
In order to get a recovery for our dentist malpractice clients, we have to be able to prove three things:
  1. Did the dentist make a mistake that no reasonable dentist would make?
  2. Did this mistake AND NOTHING ELSE cause the damage our clients suffered?
  3. Would we be able to get a settlement or judgment large enough to put money in our client's pocket after paying the costs of the lawsuit?
Your Case Has To Be Big Enough To Make Sense For Your Family

By far the biggest reason we can’t help people is the expense of dentist malpractice cases. The law requires that we obtain expert testimony to support your case. The cost of these experts, court reporters, medical records and other fees often exceeds $30,000.00 – and that’s before you factor in attorney’s fees.

This means that we simply can’t take a case where the patient has been harmed but the amount of their damages is under $50,000.00. And we would never put you through a lawsuit where we know that at the end of the day we couldn’t put money in your pocket. The case has to make sense for you and your family.

So if your case is about the loss of one tooth, a couple of bad implants, or a crown that doesn't fit right, we can't help you even if you are absolutely right that the dentist is at fault.  Malpractice litigation is so expensive that a case like that wouldn't benefit you at all.

What Does Dentist Malpractice Look Like?

Dental malpractice can take as many forms as a dentist can be negligent. At Polewski & Associates, our dentist malpractice lawyers have seen cases where dentists have placed implants in our client’s jaw without the training to do so, and where patients wound up in the hospital for a month because a dentist didn’t give an antibiotic. Some of our clients have needed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of dental surgery to fix the damage that a sloppy or unqualified dentist did to their mouth.

We’ve seen patients who had their tongues nearly cut in half by a dental drill, patients where the dentist extracted multiple healthy teeth by mistake, cases where a dentists put implants in their patients' gums instead of their jaws.

All of these cases – every single one – involved a dentist who either didn’t know what he was doing or just plain wasn’t paying attention.   That is dentist malpractice.
