The problem with dental injuries after a truck accident

Unfortunately, dental injuries sometimes get ignored after a truck or car accident in Hollywood or South Florida. Emergency responders are generally concerned with the overall injuries a patient has suffered and may not check teeth. Patients themselves may be unconscious or in so much pain that they do not notice damage to the teeth.

Left untreated, dental injuries can lead to serious complications. Any considerable injuries to the teeth can affect eating, which can affect overall health. Untreated dental injuries can also lead to abscesses and sepsis, a potentially life-threatening infection.

Insurance companies do not always recognize claims relating to dental injuries. Insurers may classify these injuries as purely cosmetic and may refuse to compensate for them. Patients may worry about paying their dental bills or may put off treatment due to cost concerns, putting their health at risk.

Getting the compensation you deserve

If you have suffered dental injury in a car accident caused by someone’s negligence, you deserve compensation for your dental costs. If you are worried about getting benefits from your insurance company or if your insurance company is refusing to cover your dental care, contact a personal injury attorney in Hollywood or your South Florida community.

Whether you have been in a T-bone accident, sideswipe collision or other crash, your dental costs can easily add up to thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars.  The imaging and other tests and visits can add up to more than a hundred dollars and if you will require multiple crowns, implants, or veneers to restore your appearance or function so you can chew correctly, your costs may be closer to tens of thousands of dollars.

If you have suffered serious injuries as a result of a traffic collision in South Florida, contact a personal injury attorney. An attorney may be able to negotiate with your insurance carrier if your policy should cover the dental work. An attorney can also tell you whether you have a legal claim to seek compensation for your injuries and damages – including your dental costs.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
