Lawyers Who Understand Dental Malpractice
Dental and maxillofacial malpractice can result in an almost endless array of injuries and are not limited to injuries of the mouth, jaws and teeth. For instance, tooth extractions, particularly wisdom teeth extractions, can cause permanent loss of sensation and taste. Also, the nerves of the tongue, cheek, chin and gums are bundled right underneath and next to the wisdom teeth. Improper wisdom teeth extraction can also cut or traumatize these nerves and cause paresthesia, which is a permanent and debilitating neurological injury.
The Queens law firm of Futterman, Sirotkin & Seinfeld, LLP, has handled dental and maxillofacial malpractice and negligence cases since 1950 and can provide experienced legal help based on decades of hands-on casework.
Our firm is one of the oldest in Queens, and we have both the financial resources to carry case expenses and the reputation to access crucial medical expert advice and testimony. The result? Many millions of dollars recovered in medical and dental malpractice cases. For more information and knowledgeable legal representation, please contact our firm.
A Recent Case Illustrates Our Effectiveness In Handling Dental And Maxillofacial Malpractice Cases
- In a recent case we recovered $350,000 for a client who lost sensation to part of his lip and chin from a wisdom tooth extraction performed in a dental clinic of a local hospital.
- Improper and careful dental care can cause appalling, life-threatening injuries that do not even involve the teeth. Patients with a cardiac history or with recent hip replacement surgeries, for example, may need medical clearance and/or prophylactic antibiotic medications to prevent dental and maxillofacial injuries. In a recent case we recovered $2.4 million for a woman who went to a dentist for a cleaning and was not given a preventative dose of antibiotics. She developed an infection in her artificial knee joint, which spread to her bone.
