Many Personal Injury Attorneys in Missouri had shied away from Dental Malpractice cases for years. The reason for this was that it was thought by many Personal Injury Attorneys that dental injuries were, in most instances, not great enough to merit a Personal Injury case. However, recently Personal Injury Attorneys have been looking more at Dental Malpractice cases.
One of the reasons for this is that with the expansion dental corporations the chance of Dental Malpractice seems to have increased. Dentistry like many parts of the healthcare industry has seen a rise in the number of practices that are now part of a larger corporation. Unfortunately, stories of these corporations putting profit before patient care are becoming increasingly easier to find. Stories of dentists performing substandard care in an effort to see more patients and performing care that may be totally unnecessary and without consent have been linked with some dental corporations.
Personal Injury Attorneys are in place to help deal with these few bad actors. While many view Personal Injury Attorneys in a poor light, they are a necessary part of society, especially as corporations creep into industries that can have a serious impact on your life, health and pocketbook.
