Bridgeport Attorneys Pursue Dental Negligence Claims Involving Failure to Diagnose

Experienced Connecticut dental malpractice lawyers help clients take legal actions against dentists

Failure to diagnose oral diseases and other dental problems is one of the most common examples of dental malpractice. Unfortunately, a dentist’s failure to diagnose a condition or misdiagnose a problem can lead to serious health complications for patients, many of whom could have been treated rather easily had the condition been pinpointed accurately in the beginning. The lawyers of MeehanLaw, LLC in Bridgeport represent Connecticut residents harmed by dentists, endodontists, periodontists and other oral health professionals. We have decades of combined litigation experience seeking full and fair compensation for clients by holding dentists accountable for substandard care.

Dental conditions that are frequently misdiagnosed or undiagnosed

While the vast majority of dental patients are treated properly, those whose conditions go undetected can face severe injuries and illnesses. Our law firm represents clients whose dentists misdiagnosed or failed to diagnose conditions such as:

  • Infections or sinus perforations associated with tooth extraction
  • Periodontal disease (gum disease)
  • Oral cancer
  • Rotting/dead teeth and associated nerve damage

Injuries from undiagnosed and misdiagnosed oral problems can be severe, including, in some cases, brain damage and even death. As experienced malpractice lawyers, we work to ensure injured patients are compensated for the harm they’ve suffered by holding dental professionals accountable when they fail to meet the high standards that govern their profession.

Proven advocates stand up for patients’ rights

When injuries caused by dental malpractice lead to serious physical and emotional pain, patients have the right to pursue compensation. However, dentists and their insurance companies have worked hard to reduce or even prevent valid malpractice claims from reaching Connecticut courtrooms. At MeehanLaw, LLC, we are dedicated to helping injured patients overcome bureaucratic obstacles and achieve positive legal outcomes. We fully understand the challenges of complex medical litigation and will consult with dental and medical experts to build a compelling case on your behalf.
