Lady faces £12,000 dental bill following a cycling accident

Following a near-fatal cycling accident a lady was left in a coma for a week after being hit by a car when she was cycling back from work in November last year. She sustained a broken pelvis, broken jaw, two dislocated knees, broken wrist and lost 6 front teeth.

The doctors managed to save her life and treated her orthopaedic injuries. However, when it came to the final procedure of having her six front teeth replaced she was told by Northampton General Hospital that they cannot restore her teeth as the procedure isn’t regarded as ‘acute care’ and is considered a cosmetic procedure.

The loss of her 6 front teeth must be devastating, particularly for a 20 year old. An already stressful situation having been made worse by the prospect of having a costly bill to put the matter right. With permanent implants costing around £2,000 per tooth she now faces a dental bill of £12,000.

When making a personal injury claim, when liability has been admitted it is possible to request an interim payment. This is an amount paid to you in partial settlement of your claim and can be requested to fund private medical treatments, rehabilitation, adapted accommodation, loss of earnings and to pay for care whilst your claim is being progressed. It can also be a portion of the value of the injury itself. It is important to receive the treatment you require as soon as possible to assist your recovery and ease your symptoms following your injury

We have a specialist cycling department which see a number of dental injuries on a regular basis. It is fair to say that insurers can be reluctant to provide interim payments. However, at Bolt Burdon Kemp Solicitors we strive to obtain an interim payment to assist you financially wherever possible and as soon as possible so that you don’t have to endure the daunting prospect that the lady is faced with above.

We can also assist by putting you in touch with organisations who can assess your treatment needs and provide you with the advice, rehabilitation and care that you need.

If you have been involved in an accident which has resulted in serious injury, please contact one of our experienced personal injury solicitors on 0207 288 4800.
