Many times auto accidents will result in Dental Injuries to a patient’s teeth and gums, or the surrounding area, including the jaw and surrounding facial areas. Many times General Dentistry will suffice for the injuries sustained in auto accidents, but in more complex or severe cases, a variety of dental specialists may be called in to consult and/or treat a patient following a traumatic dental injury.

Specialists can include:

  • Endodontics
  • Oral and maxillofacial pathology
  • Oral and maxillofacial radiology
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery
  • Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics
  • Periodontics (also periodontology)
  • Pediatric dentistry (formerly pedodontics)
  • Prosthodontics.

Many times, despite the obvious need for Dental treatment, a No-Fault Insurance Carrier may deny your bills for “lack of medical necessity,” “maximum medical improvement,” or another reason. The attorneys at TonaLaw serve to be your No-Fault collection attorneys and will work diligently to get your denied No-Fault bills paid.

As a treating dental physician, it is your priority to provide the highest level of care to treat and heal your patients. No-fault insurance companies have made it extremely difficult to receive payments for those treatments. They find every excuse possible to deny payments, even claims lawfully owed to you. Many dental physicians are not aware that payment for their services provided is protected under NYS No-Fault Insurance Law. 

Let us deal with the insurance company, while you run your business. You will have more time to spend working on billable services. There are no risks or upfront payments, TonaLaw is a no-fee law firm, all of our fees are fixed by statute and paid for by the insurance companies. If we don’t win, you don’t pay, it’s that simple.
