Defense Verdict in Kings County Dental Malpractice Case
Plaintiff was a 55-year-old female who claimed that our client improperly prepared her teeth for crown and bridge restorations and that the restorations were ill-fitting and inadequate. She claimed that she was not adequately restored to proper occlusion. As a result, the plaintiff claimed that she suffered loss of teeth, impairment of speech, difficulty in eating and emotional distress. She further claimed that she needed a complete full mouth restoration by a subsequent dentist, for which she incurred over $26,000 in out-of-pocket expenses.
After a two week trial, the jury returned a unanimous defense verdict in 45 minutes, finding no departures against our client.
