I had some dental treatment done through a Health Care, had wisdom teeth issues, and the dentist decided to extract a tooth from beside my wisdom teeth.
She did not take an X-Ray.
It seems my teeth were fused to my jaw and the prolonged extraction has created a great gaping hole in my palette. When I drink water, it goes straight through the hole.
The dentist’s reaction to her obvious mistake was visible. She shook and couldn’t talk for some time. She had to call another dentist in who took over. I was taken to Inverell and examined. It seems I now need extensive surgery to correct what has gone wrong. The older dentist admitted that ‘she’ll never make that mistake twice'. The mistake was not taking the X-Ray. And now extensive damage. I was told that I had signed a disclaimer, so nothing can be done. If I’m lucky, it should heal itself in three months. If that doesn’t happen, then surgery (with an ear, nose and throat specialist) will be the next step at a cost of $4000.
Can I consult a personal injury lawyer and put up a charge on the doctor for damaging my teeth?

Our sad situation is that he is a Chef and I'm a catering manager; we have worked together as a team for the last 20+ years, however, these types of places do not provide health insurance and...
