We recently worked on a case involving a lady who had treatment at hospital over a number of years from her teens due to troublesome teeth. The problem related to her molars and the Orthodontic Consultant tried using braces to descend the teeth in to alignment. Unfortunately the treatment did not work and led to the wearing of various braces over a number of years. By the time I was instructed the lady was at the end of her tether. Expert evidence was obtained that caused the ongoing Orthodontic treatment to be abandoned, the 2 teeth removed and implants to be inserted. This gave the client her confidence back. The Hospital Solicitors settled the case on the basis of paying for the implant treatment, (at a cost of around £8,000) as well as paying general damages for the pain and embarrassment of £17,000.
