Cook County Lawsuit against Dentist Dismissed with Prejudice

On May 16, 2018, Drew Balac secured a dismissal of a lawsuit brought against her client, a dentist.

Plaintiff alleged that during a dental procedure, plaintiff’s front tooth was chipped as a result of the dentist’s negligence.  Plaintiff alleged that the dentist’s negligence must have been the cause of the chipped tooth.

Drew Balac moved for dismissal of the lawsuit because no one could explain how or why the dentist chipped the tooth.  Drew argued that neither plaintiff nor his expert could provide an explanation sufficient to maintain the lawsuit.   The court agreed.
