We trust dentists to provide services to the standard of care our society expects, and most of the time they do. Sometimes, however, a dentist makes a mistake that can lead to nerve damage or permanent injury to the face, tongue or mouth. In rare cases, death can occur during or after a dental procedure.
If you or a family member has suffered harm due to the negligence of a dentist or dental technician, you may be able to obtain compensation for your financial losses and pain and suffering.
My name is Ira Maurer, a personal injury attorney with a record of success in medical and dental malpractice cases. I provide vigorous, results-oriented representation designed to help my clients obtain full compensation for their losses. Not every negative outcome is grounds to file a dental malpractice lawsuit. But if I find evidence of malpractice or negligence, I will seek full compensation for you.

Dental Implant Failure Lawyer
Severing of nerves during dental implant surgery is one of the more common malpractice injuries. An error made when implanting a tooth into the lower jaw can lead to permanent nerve damage to the lower lip, radiating out to the chin. Working with one or more oral surgeons, I will document the negligence of your dentist and seek results for you.
Surgery followed by physical therapy may be of some value in oral nerve damage cases. When you retain me to represent you, I will seek full compensation for your losses, including medical costs, pain and suffering and other damages.
