    10/20/2014 · Dental - Dentistry
    I have often wondered why attorneys wait so long to contact someone like me to render opinions on their dental malpractice cases. By the time I have been contacted, those things deemed important to achieve success for their clients from a legal perspective have long been established and I am brought in to provide the support for their conclusions. While I have been successful in supporting most of the conclusions established, there have been discussions of what might have been if I had been brought in sooner.

    Injuries to the inferior alveolar and lingual nerve continued to be a significant source of litigation for the dental professional. Approximately 10% of cases of dental malpractice are a result of nerve injury.
