Our medical malpractice attorneys recently learned that after the sudden death of a patient who was having twenty teeth pulled at once, the state of Connecticut suspended the license of Dr. Rashmi Patel, a dentist in Torrington. Back in February, a woman who was having extractions and implants at Dr. Patel’s clinic became unresponsive and was taken to a hospital; she was pronounced dead there. The state of Connecticut charges that Dr. Patel failed to react appropriately when the woman’s oxygen level dropped. While a fatality is the worst possible scenario, dental wrongdoing injuries are more common than you might think. If you’ve been injured by a dentist that you trusted, in New York you can file a medical malpractice claim and be compensated for your injury, but you’ll need help from an experienced Bronx medical malpractice lawyer. If you’ve been injured by dental malpractice, don’t wait another day to make the call.
