Cancer compensation claims

medical negligence

Cancer compensation claims: not an area of our expertise that most people want to have to think about, let alone make use of. But it is important that victims can access some form of justice for what they must go through.

In this article, we’ll briefly explain how we can help in this kind of scenario.

It’s useful to know a little about us as well, so you know that a claim for compensation for this type of thing is in the safest of hands.

Making a cancer compensation claim

Needing to make a cancer compensation claim is not an easy thing to do. Whether it’s a case you need to make for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, it’s a tough enough time already.

But, it’s important for victims to know their rights.

Medical negligence claims for compensation for cancer matters can arise in a number of ways, such as:

  • An incorrect or late diagnosis, which means that the correct diagnosis is delayed;
  • A failure to be referred for specialist investigations or referral for treatment at all, or in good time;
  • Inadequate advice that leads to a lack of a timely diagnosis or treatment;
  • Incorrect scan readings or failures to invite for scans when they were required;
  • General treatment or surgical errors that lead to more problems or complications.

As you may already be aware, the longer cancer is left, the worse it can be. That’s why mistakes should not happen, and why victims should be entitled to justice if something does go wrong. Patients can be entitled to claim compensation for any additional pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused, as well as for losses and expenses.

We can make use of formal medical reports from independent experts to be able to prove that you were a victim of negligence and are therefore entitled to compensation. The reports can also be used to assist us with valuing the legal case too.
