Dental Malpractice – Dental Implants – Nerve Injury

Dennis Vandenberg obtained a defense verdict for a local periodontist accused of producing a nerve injury after placement of several dental implants. The Plaintiff had supporting testimony from a nationally acclaimed oral surgeon associated with the University of Miami in addition to CT imaging studies. On the defense side, there was documentation of a delay in the onset of the complaints and a potential subsequent treater who caused or contributed to the injury. There were also contradictory CT images and testimony from another oral surgeon. The Plaintiff asked the jury for $500,000 and after 90 minutes of deliberation the jury in Palm Beach County returned a defense verdict. A substantial offer had been made pretrial to settle the matter.
