Do All Dental Malpractice Claims Get Approved?

Dental malpractice is quite a common occurrence all over the world. However, according to Los Angeles dental malpractice attorney Dane Levy, not even half of them make it all the way to the court, and even fewer get approved.

The reason is that most people aren’t even aware of the various types of dental malpractice. Even if they are aware of it, many people are not willing to go through the hassle of a court trial. And even among those who wish to take it to court, there are those cases that don’t stand a chance.

Dane Levy says that though many activities of a dentist count as dental malpractice by definition, not all of them are serious enough to be taken into consideration by the court. Only if you have suffered a massive and irreparable loss from the procedure without having any fault in it yourself do you stand a chance against the dentist in court. That isn’t to say the more minor losses aren’t taken seriously, it’s just comparatively rare.

That’s why it’s important to make sure your case qualifies as dental malpractice before proceeding with it.
