QUEENS DENTAL MALPRACTICE ATTORNEYS

Dentists owe a duty of care to their patients.  They must advise them about procedures that are necessary to maintain their dental health and their general health.  Specialist referrals are also very important.  A dentist that notices gum disease should refer the patient to a periodontist in a timely manner so that that periodontal disease does not progress into tooth loss.  Teeth that cannot be saved might need to be pulled.  Cost is often an issue as most people do not have dental insurance, but that should not impact the dentist’s work.  If a patient cannot afford the treatment the dentist recommends, they can be referred to a teaching hospital or clinic.  If you have suffered from the improper dental care you should contact Queens Dental Malpractice Attorneys to discuss your options.

Can I Sue For Sexual Abuse When I Was A Child?

The answer is yes. The Child Victims Act, passed in 2019, changed the law so that victims of sexual abuse, that are under the age of 55, can sue persons and organizations for child sexual abuse, no matter how long ago it occurred. For example, you could sue a coach that mistreated you at your elementary school in 1970 or a pediatrician that fondled you in 1975. Since the law was enacted, many victims have collected compensation for the abuse they suffered. It’s difficult for victims to tell their story, so the patient kind ear of a woman child injury attorney makes it easier to come forward with your story. Claims must be filed by August, [...]
