  • lingual nerve damage (created by a dentist)

    On 4/9/2014, I went to a dentist and had my lower left wisdom tooth pulled. As of 4/12/2014 my jaw was still numb. I called the dentist and he told me that if it was still numb by 2/15/2014 to come to his office.

    My question is: if the dentist has created nerve damage to my mouth can I sue him for causing the nerve damage?

    I wish to inform you that if dentist was negligent in its treatment then you can make dentist liable. If your nerve has been damaged then generally you may claim negligence by dentist as dentist had failed to perform its function. You may first give a notice to dentist and demand compensation. If dentist refuses then you may file a lawsuit and claim compensation.

      I suggest you read this link. You likely have no recourse and it may heal within the next 36 weeks. It is a known complication.

      I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.
