Compensation for a Broken Tooth

How much compensation for a broken tooth could I receive?

Before being able to evaluate the value of your claim for compensation for a broken tooth you must ensure that you are in fact entitled to pursue a claim. In order to be eligible to claim for a damaged tooth you must be able to identify a party who owed you a ‘duty of care’ – a responsibility to ensure your health and safety at the time of your accident. You may only pursue broken tooth compensation against a person who failed in their ‘duty of care’ towards you.

Once you have identified the person against who you are eligible to claim compensation for a broken tooth – and received appropriate medical attention – you should speak with a personal injury claims solicitor. After explaining the details of your claim for a damaged tooth to a solicitor they will be able to tell you whether or not you are entitled to pursue a claim, and if so how much compensation you may be entitled to receive.

First, your solicitor will evaluate how much general damages compensation for a broken tooth you may be entitled to. They will do this by consulting the Judicial College Guidelines for the Assessment of General Damages to obtain a base figure, and then augment the number based on variables specific to your claim: your age, gender, state of health prior to your injury and any loss of amenity – the inability to perform everyday tasks and take part in social events – will be taken into consideration.

You may also be able to pursue broken tooth compensation for any psychological injuries you sustained as a result of your injury. Breaking a tooth can often leave a person feeling down – depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress are among the illness for which compensation can be awarded. The existence of these illnesses will first have to be confirmed by a trained psychologist however.

Once your solicitor has appraised your entitlement to general damages compensation, they will evaluate your entitlement to special damages broken tooth compensation. Through special damages compensation claimants can receive remuneration for any quantifiable monetary expenses they incurred as a direct result of their injury. Any loss of earnings and medical bills can be redeemed through special damages compensation – however you must remember to keep any receipts or other relevant documentation relating to the expenses.

It is impossible to determine how much your claim for a damaged tooth may be worth based on the information provided in your question. In order to find out how much compensation you may be entitled to, speak with a personal injury claims solicitor. Only by speaking with a solicitor can you find out how much compensation for a broken tooth you are entitled to.
