Cancer services have greatly improved over the last two decades. However despite advances in the detection and treatment of the disease, mistakes sadly happen. Accurate diagnosis depends on symptoms being correctly interpreted and tests being carried out.
We are here to get you the payout you deserve for your pain, suffering, loss of earnings and any future care.
In some cases patients’ symptoms are attributed to another illness, and failure to spot cancer at an early stage means allowing it to grow unchecked.
For some sufferers this has led to more aggressive treatment than they might have otherwise needed, and for others the disease has become too widespread and extensive for treatment.
Compensation for a family member.
For some patients a delayed cancer diagnosis has led to a vastly reduced life expectancy. If a loved one is now terminal or has died because of a GP or hospital blunder in diagnosing their illness, you are entitled to highlight the failing and seek compensation.
Making a medical negligence claim.
The affect of a delayed diagnosis depends on the type of cancer you have and how aggressive it is.
How much compensation you could receive depends on:
- what could have been done to treat you had you received an earlier diagnosis
- how different the prognosis and outcome could have been.
For a claims success it will be necessary to prove that the delayed or misdiagnosis was the direct cause of any unfavourable outcome.
If you believe you have suffered because of negligent treatment and might be entitled to compensation we can help you make a claim.
