Although country singing icon LeAnn Rimes wrote a song called: “All I want for Christmas Is You”, there’s another song lyric that goes “…All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth.” Well, it appears Ms. Rimes wants that and more.
On February 14, 2013, LeAnn filed a lawsuit against her dentist alleging that he was “negligent” in the dental work he performed on the 30-year-old singer. She is seeking compensation for physical, emotional and psychiatric injuries she claims is from faulty crown placement over a three year period.
Haggerty & Silverman have been aggressively representing injured clients for over 25 years. In this case of possible Medical Malpractice (or even Product Liability), the dentist may be found liable and ordered to pay the undisclosed monetary compensation. LeAnn Rimes has complained of severe toothaches, chronic gum bleeding and inflammation which she attributes to the crown placements on her teeth.
The dentist had assured Rimes that this dental work would improve her appearance and relieve her of TMJ related pain. TMJ is ‘temporomandibular joint’ and the leading cause of facial pain in patients.
When asked why she is suing, the famous country singer stated that the poor dental work by her dentist has stalled her career and made her life a dental nightmare.She is also seeking re-treatment for her dental surgery.
