Dental Malpractice

Many of us associate pain with a dentist visit and, while that is not always true, there is a level of pain or discomfort you can expect when you undergo certain dental procedures. If those procedures result in serious pain and/or lasting injury, however, you may be the victim of dental malpractice.

Dental malpractice is negligent, incorrect or inadequate actions performed by a dentist or oral surgeon resulting in serious consequences for the patient. Malpractice injuries can be the result of something the dental professional either has done or has failed to do – improper use of equipment, wrongful extractions, failure to diagnosis a disease or condition, not considering relevant medical history before treatment. These actions or lack of can result in a variety of injuries including, but not limited to: nerve damage resulting in the loss of the sense of taste, permanent numbness of the tongue or other area of the mouth; complications from improperly fitted bridges and crowns; infections; disfigurement. In addition to the pain associated with these injuries, a victim of dental malpractice may also suffer loss of work due to the injuries, resulting in monetary hardships.

Dental Malpractice is Not Always Easy to Identify

Each state has its own guidelines for what constitutes dental malpractice but, generally speaking, the act has to result in more than just short-term pain or discomfort. To file a successful dental malpractice claim, you need the help of an experienced dental malpractice lawyer. Victor Rotolo is certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Civil Trial Attorney. Anthony Kearns, Victor Rotolo, and the other attorneys at Kearns Rotolo Law are well-versed in the malpractice laws specific to the State of New Jersey. They will listen to your experiences and help evaluate your case. They stand ready to defend your case in court.

Sometimes an act of malpractice is immediately noticeable, as in when a dental professional improperly uses equipment resulting in injuries to your gums, teeth or mouth. Other negligent acts can result in injuries not immediately identifiable, such as infections, misalignments, nerve damage and, in some instances, even death. While malpractice issues should be addressed as soon as possible, some take time to clearly identify. Because they are knowledgeable about the specific laws of New Jersey, Kearns Rotolo Law attorneys will diligently investigate the circumstances of your injury to determine the validity of your case, taking into consideration New Jersey’s statute of limitations.

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
