According to the lawsuit, the woman visited the dental care facility for dental issues that she was suffering with. The woman says that she has suffered with an infection. She also alleges that the dentists failed to fit dentures to her mouth properly.
The basis of the lawsuit is that the defendants failed to provide the accepted standard of care. The woman’s husband claims that he has suffered a loss of consortium as a result of his wife’s injuries. The plaintiff’s want a trial by jury. They are seeking special and general damages as well as any relief the court deems to be fair.
While it is unusual to hear of medical malpractice cases involving dentists, it does happen. Any doctor can be found guilty of medical malpractice if they fail to provide the standard of care that is currently accepted within the medical community.
