New York Dental Malpractice Information

Dental Malpractice Law

Dental Malpractice is when a dentist does not follow the accepted standard of care and causes harm to the patient. Examples of that include failing to properly diagnose or examine the patient, improper use of dental instruments and anesthesia, and performing unnecessary treatment.

Dental Malpractice Legal Help

If you believe your dentist committed malpractice, you should immediately consult with a New York lawyer who handles dental malpractice cases. The lawyer can evaluate the circumstances of the dental care in question and determine if you are legally entitled to compensation. Seeking legal advice is the best way to protect your legal rights.

Top Questions to Ask When Hiring an Attorney

  • How many years have you been practicing law? How long have you practiced law in the local area?
  • How many cases similar to mine have you handled in the past?
  • What is the likely outcome for my case?

In legal practice, experience matters. An experienced attorney will likely have handled issues similar to yours many, many times. Therefore, after listening to your situation, the attorney should have a reasonable idea of the time line for a case like yours and the likely resolution.

Tips on Approaching an Initial Attorney Consultation

  • Use the consultation as a means of gaining a better understanding of your legal situation.
  • Ask the attorney how many cases similar to yours he/she has handled. An attorney's experience and knowledge can speak to their expertise (or lack of) in addressing your situation.
  • Your attorney should be able to articulate roughly how long a case like yours will take to resolve and what sort of procedures to expect.
  • Determine how comfortable you are working with the lawyer and/or law firm.

Tips on Hiring an Experienced Lawyer with Dental Malpractice Cases

The more experienced a lawyer is in legal practice, the more likely he/she will be able to bring about a successful resolution to your issue. Since experience matters, lawyers who've been practicing law for many years (with a successful track record) tend to be in high demand. You should look for information about a lawyer's experience and ask questions during the initial meeting. It's a very good idea to ask the lawyer how many years he/she has been practicing law and the expected outcome of your case.
