Our dental negligence solicitors can help you make a claim for oral cancer that wasn’t diagnosed quickly enough.
It’s important that dentists diagnose and treat oral cancer quickly to reduce the risk of complications . Common symptoms of oral cancer include:
- Red or white patches in the mouth lining or tongue.
You may be able to claim compensation if your dentist didn’t diagnose your oral cancer. You may also be able to claim if your dentist diagnosed your cancer later than they should have.
A dentist should be able to see the signs of oral cancer and carry out assessments properly. If they don’t, you can be at risk of further health problems.
If you’ve suffered from a delayed oral cancer diagnosis, contact our lawyers today on 0808 256 5690 or contact us online to find out more.
Examples Of Our Current Work
Kevin Saul helped a lady in her 70s make a claim after her dentist failed to diagnose her oral cancer.
She went to her dentist with a swollen lower jaw. Her dentist told her not to worry, but the problem didn’t go away. She kept going back to the dentist for a few months but got the same answer every time.
Eventually, she went for a second opinion and found out she had oral cancer. She needed multiple operations, including one to remove her lower jaw. She now has to eat through a tube that’s connected directly to the stomach (known as percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy).
Our dental negligence solicitors secured £500,000 in compensation to help her continue with her recovery. The sum also gives her financial security after going through so much pain and suffering.
