It’s important to know that you’re in the safest of hands when it comes to this type of legal claim. With this in mind, here’s a little guidance for you.
Eligibility for cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims
In terms of eligibility for No Win, No Fee representation for cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims, we do need to assess matters on a case-by-case basis.
For general guidance, you may have a claim if:
- Your cancer has been unduly diagnosed late;
- You were not given the correct treatment for the diagnosis you received;
- You have received treatment for cancer having been given a cancer diagnosis when you don’t actually have cancer.
To evidence this, we can instruct a specialist medical expert who can provide a report for us that’s based on information from your medical records and from your own personal account of events. They can then give their professional opinion as to whether you have been the victim of negligence, and if you have, we can use their report to support the case.
What do you claim for?
As well as establishing negligence in cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims, we also need to evidence your suffering and losses, and that’s what you can then receive damages for.
You could claim for:
- Any additional pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused. In case of a cancer diagnosis that shouldn’t have been made, this could account for the need for any unnecessary surgery and chemotherapy;
- The impact of any complications that arise from the negligence that has taken place;
- Any losses and expenses that have occurred, such as lost earnings from time off work, or for treatment costs.
