Dental Negligence Claims

Oral Cancer Claims

Our dental negligence solicitors have represented a number of clients following delayed diagnosis of oral cancer.

It’s essential that diagnosis is obtained as quickly as possible. Some common symptoms include:

  • Ulcers
  • Lumps
  • Red or white patches in the mouth lining or tongue.

If you have been to the dentist with oral cancer symptoms but weren’t successfully diagnosed, you may be entitled to compensation. If assessments aren’t conducted properly, further health problems can result, with late diagnosis often requiring significant surgery and additional treatment.

Examples Of Our Current Work

Kevin Saul acted for a lady in her 70s who recovered £500,000 in damages for delay in the diagnosis of oral cancer. She attended her dentist complaining of a swelling in her lower jaw. Over a period of months she attended various times and was reassured but was eventually diagnosed following a second opinion. She required multiple operations, involving the removal of her lower jaw which resulted in her being PEG fed.
