MeehanLaw, LLC believes people injured by negligent dental care deserve full and fair compensation for the injuries they’ve suffered. Our Bridgeport attorneys draw on decades of experience in Connecticut’s legal system to advocate powerfully for every person we represent. One of the most common questions we receive from clients is how much compensation they might be able to receive in a lawsuit. The answer to that question is different in every case, but all clients can trust us to fight for the full damage amount they deserve.
When we file a dental malpractice lawsuit on your behalf, we may seek both economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages are those that can be more easily calculated, such as:
Noneconomic damages are for less tangible but very real harm suffered by victims and may include:
The amount of damages we seek depends on the nature and extent of your injuries and existing damage awards in similar cases, so there is no set amount that you will recover if successful. Unlike many other states, Connecticut places no cap, or limit, on the compensation a plaintiff can receive in a medical (or dental) malpractice case, which benefits our clients. In addition, we may be able to seek punitive damages, but they are awarded only when the dentist’s conduct amounts to gross negligence or maliciousness. Even when punitive damages are awarded, they are limited to attorney’s fees and costs of the case.
If you believe dental negligence has caused you to suffer an injury in Connecticut, MeehanLaw, LLC in Bridgeport will seek compensation that fully addresses your harm.
