A broken tooth can be a painful experience, and depending upon where in the mouth it is located, can either be unsightly or inconvenient when you want to eat. Leaving a broken tooth untreated may allow germs to enter and cause infection – a particular problem if you are also diabetic. Dental treatment is expensive and not everybody can afford the repair work necessary. If your broken tooth has come as a result of an accident cause by somebody else´s negligence, you are entitled to make a broken tooth injury compensation claim which will incorporate the cost of remedial treatment to restore both the health and look of your teeth.
Even when you have only sustained minor damage to your tooth, a trip to the dentist is essential to ensure that any damage is repaired and the chip, crack or break does not deteriorate and cause further tooth decay. Your solicitor will be able to advise you how the cost of the emergency visit to the dentist can be reclaimed in your broken tooth injury compensation claim.
Making a Broken Tooth Injury Compensation Claim
No matter how your broken tooth injury has been sustained, a claim for broken tooth injury is best done with the assistance of a personal injury claims solicitor. He will be able to advise you how much broken tooth compensation you will be entitled to receive and assist with the completion and submission of the application form to the Injuries Board Ireland.
Claiming compensation for broken teeth is not always straightforward if the liable party for your accident does not readily accept responsibility for your broken tooth injury claim. He might also argue that you were partly responsible for your broken tooth injury by your own actions – in which case the Injuries Board Ireland will issue you with an authorization to pursue your broken tooth injury claim through the courts.
In other situations, you may be approached by the negligent party´s insurance company with an offer of early settlement for your broken tooth injury claim. A solicitor will be able to advise you whether their offer represents a fair and adequate amount of broken tooth injury compensation, or whether he should negotiate on your behalf for a more appropriate settlement.

What You Can Expect When You Call
We appreciate the pain that a broken tooth can cause as well as any future discomfort you may experience when you return to the dentist to have the broken tooth repaired, and you will find us sympathetic to your injury and courteous throughout our conversation.
We will ask you to tell us how your broken tooth injury was sustained, what treatment you initially received for it, and what work your dentist suggests still needs to be done. We would also like to know how the broken tooth injury has affected your quality of life, as there may be elements of this that can also be integrated into a broken tooth injury compensation claim.
Once we have established that you have a broken tooth injury claim which is worth your while to pursue, we should be able to tell you what processes are involved in your claim, how long it should take to get resolved and how much broken tooth injury compensation we would expect you to receive.
If you have any questions, you are welcome to ask them at any stage of our conversation, and we will check before we end your initial call that you have understood our answers and the advice we have given you.
You are under no obligation to act on any of our advice or proceed with a claim for broken tooth injury compensation, and many clients have found it useful to reflect on our advice or discuss it with family and friends before deciding to make a broken tooth injury compensation claim.
However, you should not deliberate too long before contacting our free broken tooth injury claims advice service on 1800 911 940. Not only does a time limit exist from the day on which you broke your tooth to make a broken tooth injury compensation claim, but all the time the broken tooth goes untreated, you could develop far worse injuries.
