Teeth Injury Compensation Claim
Every year, many people suffer from injuries caused by accident at work. At one time we would just shrug our shoulders, take a trip to A&E, take a few days off, probably without pay then return to working life as normal. Today, the scenario couldn’t be more different. The premise now is that if you do have a serious accident at work it is somebody’s fault and they should pay. It isn’t a difficult process either with their being so many accident solicitors around, and you cannot lose your job over it as you would at one time.
These accidents can happen anywhere, whether your job determines you will be in an office or factory or working outside. We have all seen the ads on TV highlighting these and while we know these are actors portraying the victims, what they suffer is very real. Tripping and falling are the two most common mishaps suffered by those who contact a solicitor to make a compensation claim, and there are several parts to every claim.
For example, should you fall, and you face a wall or the pavement or anything else hard enough to cause you to suffer from broken teeth, or in some cases knock them out altogether, your solicitor will sue for the accident itself. The cost of the treatment to correct the damage and also for the suffering incurred needs to be claimed back. On average, the cost of losing your two front teeth equates in monetary terms to roughly between £5,100 and £6,600 on average.
Every case is different however and the amount your solicitor decides you are entitled to, and thus puts the claim in for, will be discussed between you. If the damage is severe and your mouth has to heal before the dental repair work can be done, it is more than likely that he will also claim for, on your behalf, emotional distress, rehabilitation, pain and suffering and physical loss. So the average quoted figure can rise above the top amount depending on the severity of your injury.
Some of the more common conditions are as follows:
- Cracked Tooth Syndrome
- Dry Socket (Alveolar Osteitis)
- Impacted Wisdom Teeth
- Orofacial Pain
- Sensitive Teeth
- Tooth Abfraction Lesions
- Tooth Erosion
- Tooth Abscess
- Tooth Discolouration
Putting in a compensation claim doesn’t come cheap, hence the trend for most solicitors now offering a no win no fee basis. This does exactly what it says on the tin; you lose the solicitor gets nothing, you win he deducts a predetermined amount of the total compensation you receive. The beauty of this is that, as opposed to the previous system when the solicitors were paid whatever the outcome, you can be pretty certain that you are going to get something back as no solicitor these days will back a no-hoper.
If you have suffered any accident in the workplace that has caused you to damage or lose your teeth, then you owe it to yourself to contact a solicitor as soon as you are able. Don’t keep putting it off, the sooner you claim, the sooner it will be sorted out. It is rare that you have to attend court these days in cases like this as your claim is made against the companies insurance, and going to court will cost them even more in the long run.
