Can I Recover Compensation For Dental Injuries After A Crash?


When people think about motor vehicle accident injuries, they often think of injuries such as broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and back injuries. Dental injuries are usually not the first kind of injuries people think of when it comes to motor vehicle collisions. However, dental injuries occur more frequently in crashes than people think. These injuries are especially common in accidents where a person’s mouth slams into hard objects inside the vehicle, such as the steering wheel. For example, if a person is rear-ended, they could hit the steering wheel with their mouth and end up with a dental injury. Just like any other injuries, dental injuries can cause severe damage and deserve compensation. So yes, you can recover compensation for dental injuries after a crash. The dental bills you incur after a collision that was another party’s fault can be included in your compensation.

Common Dental Injuries in Motor Vehicle Collisions

A dental injury is any damage that occurs to a victim’s teeth and the teeth’s supporting structures. A dental injury can be extremely painful and require a long time to recover. The following are some of the most common types of dental injuries in motor vehicle collisions;

  • Cracked teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Loose teeth
  • Cracked crown
  • Lost teeth
  • Damage to dental implants
  • Dislodged teeth

After a dental injury occurs in a motor vehicle collision, it could require, among others, the following dental work;

  • Bridges
  • Crown replacement
  • Bridges
  • Veneers
  • Dental implants

After a crash, the costs of these procedures can quickly add up. But if you suffered a dental injury in a collision that was not your fault, you should not hesitate to seek medical attention since an attorney can help you recover compensation for your medical expenses from the party that caused your accident.

Can You Obtain Compensation for Pain and Suffering After Suffering a Dental Injury in a Crash?

Apart from recovering compensation for your dental bills, you can also recover compensation for the pain and suffering caused by your dental injury. Dental injuries can be extremely painful, especially because this body part is quite sensitive. Apart from being eligible to recover compensation for the physical pain and suffering caused by your dental injury, you may also be eligible to recover compensation for the pain and suffering associated with distress or self-consciousness. You may be eligible to recover compensation for the pain and suffering associated with the disfigurement or scarring.

Proving Dental Injuries

Just because your dental injuries are visible does not mean you are guaranteed compensation. To recover compensation for the at-fault party, you must prove that you suffered those injuries in the accident in question. To prove that, you need medical records. Your medical records will clearly state how you suffered your injuries. Also, the police report can help you prove you suffered your dental injuries in the accident in question.

What if the At-fault Party’s Insurance Company Refuses To Negotiate?

Suppose the insurance company refuses to negotiate and make you a fair offer for your dental injuries. In such a case, a qualified attorney can help you file a lawsuit and fight for compensation in court.
