Dentist removes all of man's teeth

Having wisdom teeth removed is a common dental procedure for many Pittsburgh residents. Most of the time this is a simple surgery with not too many complications. But, like all medical procedures, it does run the risk of medical malpracticee.

A man claims that his dentist removed all of his teeth, not just the wisdom teeth that were supposed to be removed. The man was put under last March in order to have all four of his wisdom teeth removed. When he woke up he realized all of his teeth were missing. His wife realized something was wrong when after sitting in the waiting room for over five hours her husband was still not out of surgery. When she finally got to see him he was covered in blood and not responsive. An ambulance was called and the man coded twice on the way to the hospital. The man was put in a medically induced coma. The dentist claims that he removed all of the teeth because he was afraid the infection would spread to more teeth. The family plans to file a medical malpracticee lawsuit.

No matter how routine a medical procedure can be there is always a risk of negligence. When the unthinkable occurs a family can be devastated and want answers. A legal professional skilled in medical malpracticee can help a family get those answers. They can review the medical records and consult with medical and dental experts to help figure out what happened. They can hold the medical professionals accountable for their mistake. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, future medical expenses and other damages.

No one ever thinks they will be the victim of a medical or dental mistake. Victims of medical malpracticee have legal rights to hold these medical professionals accountable.
