Helping Tennessee Victims Of Dental Malpractice Get Compensation

Dental work is notoriously expensive. When you see a dentist, you shouldn’t have to pay for unnecessary work due to a misdiagnosis. Likewise, if your dentist performs the work poorly and you need to get it redone, you shouldn’t have to foot the bill.

At Miller Injury Firm, we help people get justice for dental malpractice. Our lawyers have 35-plus years of experience handling complex personal injury claims, and we have many successful results to show for it. We have the skillset it takes to obtain financial recovery in these complex cases.

What Is Dental Malpractice?

Dentists are held to high professional standards of care. Whenever they fail to uphold those standards and cause harm to patients, including financial harm, they can be held accountable through a dental malpractice claim.

Common Examples Of Dental Malpractice

Dental malpractice involves any deviation from the professional standard of care. Examples include:

  • Performing unnecessary dental work
  • Misdiagnosing or failing to diagnose a dental condition
  • Performing poor-quality work

Dental mistakes can lead not only to unnecessary expense, but also to substantial harm such as infections, nerve damage and preventable tooth loss. Our lawyers know how to make a strong case for compensation that accounts for all of our clients’ losses.

What Is Required To Prove Dental Malpractice?

You will need to prove that your dentist was negligent and that their negligence harmed you – physically, financially or both. Proving negligence and causation can be challenging. These cases often require the involvement of experts in the appropriate dental field. Our attorneys can enlist the right experts for your case.

Statute Of Limitations For Dental Malpractice Claims In Tennessee

The statute of limitations (deadline) for dental malpractice claims in Tennessee is quite short. You only have one year after you discovered the malpractice to file a lawsuit. Additionally, the window for bringing a claim closes three years after the malpractice occurred, regardless of when you discovered it.
