Information about Cracked Tooth Injury Claims
Cracked tooth injury claims enable you to recover compensation when you have suffered an injury to your tooth in an accident for which somebody else was primarily to blame. Irrespective of how your injury was sustained, by making a successful claim for a cracked tooth injury you will be compensated for the pain you experienced at the time your injury occurred, the effect that the damaged tooth has on your quality of life and any financial consequences of being incapacitated due to a cracked tooth injury.
Establishing Your Eligibility to Make Cracked Tooth Injury Claims
Cracked tooth injury claims have to show that you have sustained an injury to your tooth and that the injury was due to a third party´s lack of care. Determining that you have sustained a damaged tooth can be proven by your dental records, but establishing that a third party is responsible for the cracked tooth injury through their negligent actions – or lack of actions – can often be more difficult.
Police reports or accident reports may need to be compiled and evidence gathered in support of your cracked tooth injury claim and, at a time when you may be in a considerable amount of pain from the damage to your tooth, collecting evidence of negligence may not be something which is easy for you to do and should not be made a priority before you have recovered from your cracked tooth injury.
Therefore, it is in your best interests to discuss making cracked tooth injury claims for compensation with a lawyer as soon as practically possible. A lawyer will assess your claim for a cracked tooth injury, assist you where necessary to collect evidence in support of your cracked tooth injury claim and advise you if you have a claim for cracked tooth injury compensation which is worth your while to pursue.
How Much Cracked Tooth Injury Compensation Will I Get?
How much compensation for a cracked tooth injury you will be entitled to receive will depend on your personal circumstances. A lawyer will calculate the value of your cracked tooth injury claim by considering the severity of the injury to your tooth in relation to your age, sex and general state of health prior to the incident which was responsible for you suffering a damaged tooth.
As mentioned above, the consequences of your cracked tooth injury and the effect it has on your quality of life will also be taken into account when compiling a claim for cracked tooth injury compensation. Along with your lack of ability to perform day-to-day tasks while still recovering from a damaged tooth, any quantifiable psychological consequences of the accident which led to your cracked tooth injury – for example any confidence issues you may have in the future – will also be integrated into your cracked tooth injury claim for compensation.
You are also entitled to recover any financial costs which are directly attributable to your cracked tooth injury when making a claim for cracked tooth injury compensation. These can range from expenses incurred seeking medical attention following an accident which led to your cracked tooth injury, to the cost of remedial dentistry work to repair the cracked tooth. Any loss of income can also be recovered in a claim for cracked tooth injury compensation – including overtime and pension contributions.
“Contingency Fee” Claims for a Cracked Tooth Injury
Provided that your lawyer believes there is a strong likelihood of your claim for cracked tooth injury compensation being successful, he or she will usually be prepared to represent you in your cracked tooth injury claim on a “Contingency Fee” basis. This usually means that, should you lose your claim for cracked tooth injury compensation, you will not owe your lawyer for their legal fees and, when your cracked tooth injury claim is successful, you will retain 100 percent of your compensation settlement.
However, not all lawyers offer “Contingency Fee” claims for a cracked tooth injury on the same basis, and it may be necessary for you to take out an insurance policy to protect yourself from potential financial exposure should your claim for cracked tooth injury compensation be unsuccessful and you become liable for the defendant´s legal fees. Your lawyer should explain the exact terms and conditions of a “Contingency Fee” claim for a cracked tooth injury prior to accepting your case.
