An incorrect clinical approach to tooth injuries as the possible cause of undue indemnity

Spinas E., Altana M.


PDF


From an analysis of the various cases of tooth injuries observed, it emerged that approximately 60% of the evaluations made by the authors of the damage sustained would have resulted in the payment of less indemnity if the injured person had received appropriate treatment able to limit the onset of complications or undesirable sequelae. For this reason the authors report two cases of young person affected by an identical traumatic avulsion of teeth in the front sector, where there was a substantial difference in the evaluation of the consequent damage owing to an inadequate clinical approach.
