Some of the procedures that commonly lead to dental malpractice litigation include root canals, dental implants and complicated extractions. Dentists in Georgia must comply with the standard of care when rendering care and treatment to their patients. Just like many other types of professionals, dentists must provide care that a reasonable dentist would provide under like and similar circumstances. Some examples of dental malpractice are quite clear, such as extracting the wrong tooth, drilling into areas that are not in the surgical area and failing to order a biopsy when the patient clearly has signs or symptoms of cancer (and must be ruled out or risk them dying from undiagnosed cancer). Others examples or malpractice are less obvious (but just as culpable) and the case must be reviewed by a dental expert such as an endodontist or oral surgeon who can review the facts of the case, the treatment rendered and the resulting injuires to render an opinion of whether there was malpractice or not.
The resulting damages from dental malpractice certainly can run the gamut. Some malpractice results in relatively minor damages (and hence do not result in a lawsuit), while others can result in permanent life altering injuries or even death. In addition, there is not always a direct relationship between the level of malpractice and the severity of the injury. That is why a potential dental malpractice client would be well advised to seek a lawyer who has substantial experience evaluating and pursuing dental cases in court. The dental malpractice lawyer should be able to evaluate the case from a medical-legal perspective to determine (1) if the case should be reviewed by a dental expert; and if so, which expert would be best qualified to review the case. Experts need to have complete copies of files in order to propery evaluate a case and render an opinion.
