A Dental expert witness you can trust
It is often said that there are two sides to every story and this is true in any dental dispute, which is why a dental expert witness can be useful in order to assess any evidence and establish the facts.
Why use a dental expert witness?
Be it a personal injury claim, clinical negligence allegation or a Fitness to Practise hearing, a dental malpractice expert witness, will have the right level of knowledge and expertise to look at any evidence presented to them and make an independent and impartial assessment of the facts.
Although the overall outcome of any case will be down to the court or panel, the expert witness will be considered an experienced and respected source of knowledge to be drawn upon and their evidence will be held in high regard when the decision is made. Their expert knowledge is also important when deciding on the level of damages to be awarded.
Who might call upon the services of a dental expert?
- The General Dental Council (GDC) in a Fitness to Practise Hearing
- The Police, a barrister or a solicitor in a criminal trial
- A dentist facing allegations of clinical negligence or dental malpractice
- Patients who feel they have not been treated appropriately and are looking to bring damages against a dentist
- Insurance companies or indemnifiers
