Dean Burnetti Law, Central Florida's Leading Dental Malpractice Law Firm

In Florida, Dental Malpractice laws and regulations are the same as the state’s medical malpractice and negligence laws.

In a Dental Malpractice claim, your attorney must find what is known as an expert witness.  This expert witness is another dentist, oral or maxillofacial surgeon, orthodontist, periodontist, endodontist, etc. with similar credentials and experience as your provider who committed the alleged dental malpractice.  This expert will review your dental and medical records and examine any accompanying evidence (x-rays, etc.) that substantiates your claim. Afterward, this expert must testify that the dentist you used actually did something wrong or negligent that caused your long-term problems.

Next, your lawyer must also prove that your dentist did not act with the same degree of skill and care that another dentist would have used.

Finally, Florida law states that to win your dental malpractice case, your lawyer must prove the following four elements:

Dental Malpractice lawsuits often arise due to:

Dental Malpractice Injuries often include:

You Must Act Fast

Florida law allows two years from the date of a Dental Malpractice occurrence to file a claim. This means you have two years from the date the malpractice occurred to file your lawsuit. Otherwise, your right to make a claim expires. This is why it's so important to contact an attorney as soon as you suspect that your dentist committed malpractice. 

If you were injured or if a loved one was killed by Dental Malpractice, you have the right to a qualified attorney who is skilled in Florida's complex malpractice law and is knowledgeable about your type of injuries.
