Dental Negligence Claims

Nerve Injury Claims

Nerve injuries can occur as a result of errors during oral surgeries, including tooth extractions. Patients can experience devastating effects including severe pain, changes to physical appearance and psychological issues. If you have suffered a nerve injury as a result of negligent treatment, our team can help.

Some common nerve injury symptoms include:

  • Pain in the jaw, cheek, forehead or eye
  • Burning sensation in the jaw
  • Loss of sensation
  • Tingling in the mouth/jaw
  • No control over saliva
  • Tugging or pulling sensation on the tongue.

The pain caused by these injuries can be agonising and can become worse when simply smiling, talking, chewing, moving your head or when facing a cool breeze.

Our dental negligence solicitors can obtain vital funds in respect of your pain and suffering, which can contribute towards further treatment and fund support services.

Examples Of Our Current Work

Hannah Wallace has acted for a 40 year old man who suffered a facial nerve injury following the extraction of a wisdom tooth. Investigations indicated that the dentist had failed to protect our client’s nerve during the extraction process. As a consequence, the man suffers daily pins and needles around his tongue, and numbness of his lips. He struggles with his work as a consequence and has required CBT to help him come to terms with the likely permanent nature of his symptoms.
