Michigan Dental Malpractice Lawyers

Michigan dental malpractice lawsuit lawyersOur Michigan dental malpractice lawyers represent clients injured due to mistakes by dentists in the treatment of dental conditions. Injuries often occur when a dentist, oral surgeon, periodontist or other dental professional fail to diagnose a condition, cause an injury during a procedure, fail to properly treat a dental condition, or delay in the diagnose of a condition or disease.

Filing a Michigan Dental Malpractice Lawsuit

Michigan dental malpractice lawyers have experience in reviewing dental records to determine whether an injury was the result of a dental mistake or simply a poor outcome from a procedure or oral surgery that was done improperly. Because there are risks and complications with most dental procedures, the injuries to the patient must be result of negligent care by the dentist in order to succeed in a dental malpractice case. Additionally, the injuries suffered by the patient must be severe and more than temporary discomfort following a procedure.
