Cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims advice

the nhs may be heading for a summer crisis!

If you need advice when it comes to cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims, we can help you. As expert injury lawyers who specialise in serious injury cases, these kinds of claims are what we set ourselves up to focus on.

A large volume of the personal injury claims that we take forward fall into the category of serious and catastrophic injury cases. We have a specific team of senior lawyers and caseworkers whose job is to look after our clients who need help with matters as sensitive and as serious as cancer claims.

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.

Advice for cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims

Advice for cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims is best received for your individual circumstances. That’s why we offer free, no-obligation advice for claims, so you can speak to our team for guidance and advice about your options before going ahead with anything.

If you do then want to make a claim, we can offer No Win, No Fee representation.
