$685,000 SETTLEMENT - Dental Malpractice - Nerve Injury Caused By Bleach During Root Canal

We represented a 67-year-old woman, who was injured during a root canal when her dentist over instrumented, which allowed an excessive amount of bleach into the periapical bone and tissue. This bleach caused an injury to her trigeminal and facial nerves. The defendant claimed that he did not breach of the standard of care in performing the root canal. The case settled as the lawsuit was about to be served on the defendant for $685,000.
