What Is Dental Malpractice in Miami?
Dental malpractice in Miami is when a patient suffers an injury from inadequate dental care. A dental professional must have the training, skill and care to provide adequate services. When healthcare providers fail to meet the standard of reasonable care, they owe the victim compensation for damages. Dental malpractice occurs when a victim suffers harm because of negligence and substandard care.
What Constitutes Dental Malpractice in Florida?
You may be a victim of dental malpractice if you’re injured as a result of:
- Operating on the wrong tooth or part of the body
- Errors in anesthesia or numbing
- Nerve damage and facial paralysis
- Failing to conduct routine health screenings as part of an appointment; not recognizing signs of illness, cancer or injury
- Infection; preventable complications
- Unsanitary conditions that cause illness or exposure to disease
- Chronic pain
- Tooth damage
- Other injuries
When you are the victim of dental malpractice, you may claim your actual damages plus an additional amount for pain and suffering.
Can You Sue for Dental Malpractice?
You can sue for dental malpractice if the following conditions are present:
- The dentist or assistant owes a duty of care to the victim. A duty of care exists between all medical caregivers and their patients. If you receive dental care, even as a charity, the dentist must provide competent care.
- A breach of duty occurs. The professional fails to provide care up to the standard of an ordinary, reasonable person. It’s an individual evaluation based on the actions of the healthcare provider and what would have been standard care under the circumstances.
- Injury occurs to the victim. The victim must suffer harm because of the breach of duty. The harm must either cause a medical injury or make a medical condition worse. A delayed diagnosis that makes a medical condition more severe counts as an injury. The harm must be the result of negligent actions or inaction on the part of the dentist.
- The victim has damages. Damages are economic losses like added medical bills, lost income or even child care if someone cannot be a caregiver. A victim who suffers physical injury also deserves fair compensation for physical suffering, emotional anguish and changes to lifestyle because of their injuries.
