What can you do when doctors missed the signs of cancer?

nhs care in crisis

If a doctor or a medical practitioner has missed the signs of cancer, and you have suffered as a result of this, you could be entitled to pursue a claim for medical negligence compensation.

If we are able to prove that you have been the victim of negligence, that is when you may be able to pursue a legal case. For eligible clients, we may be able to offer No Win, No Fee legal representation.

You can contact the team for free, no-obligation advice here now, or read on for a little further advice.

The difficulties with cancer cases

It can be true that some signs and symptoms of cancer can just be general things that are nothing to worry about. In cases where it is a rare form of cancer, it can be harder in some cases to differentiate between what could be the genuine symptoms of cancer, and what could be something completely non-sinister. We know of instances where people have been diagnosed with simple things like constipation when they have actually been suffering from cancer, and we know that it is a ticking clock when it comes to diagnosing cancer as early as possible. The longer that time goes on, the less likely the patient may be able to recover.

What has not helped, of course, is the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The strain on the NHS combined with government policy that has come under heavy criticism has left elements of the NHS under significant pressure and vulnerable to problems. If this happens, it is then the patients that can suffer, and this affects real lives and real people.

Some people have found it hard to get appointments with doctors when they have spoken about their symptoms. Others have been unable to receive timely referrals for help. Ultimately, this has led to people suffering when doctors and practitioners have missed the signs of cancer, and it can lead to worse suffering as well as fatalities.

What can be done about these issues?

Tragically, in some cases, we know that nothing can be done when it is too late if doctors missed the signs of cancer. If treatment has not been administered in a timely fashion, it can be a case of tumours and cancers having spread beyond the point of no return.

Whilst we cannot turn back the clock and undo what has happened to you, what we can do is represent you for a No Win, No Fee medical negligence compensation claim. The law is there to protect you, and it can be used to pursue damages for any injury, suffering and loss that you have sustained.

A really important part of this can be compensation for losses and expenses. If you are unable to work as a result of medical negligence, you could be entitled to claim for lost earnings. If private treatment could help you, we may be able to include funding for private surgery and treatment for a better and faster recovery – all as part of a legal case.

If we assess the potential claim and we believe that a medical practitioner has missed the signs of cancer as a result of negligence, you may be eligible to benefit from our No Win, No Fee representation. This means that we can write off our legal fees if the case does not succeed, and all we ask is that you comply with the terms and conditions of the agreement in place.
