We’ll Be Here to Help You Throughout

In many cases, the chances of cancer treatment being successful and you making a recovery are good, especially if the cancer is found and dealt with quickly. What can complicate things are delays in diagnosis and treatment, missed opportunities to diagnose or a completely incorrect diagnosis.

We understand that being diagnosed with cancer can feel like the world in crashing down around you. If your diagnosis is delayed or you have previously been told that it was not cancer, you understandably will feel angry, upset and scared.

Our team know how you feel, so want to help you make a claim. With our help, you can receive the compensation you need to be able to get your life back on track following your awful experience.

We’re here to help you move forward following your misdiagnosis. Although we are here to provide you with legal guidance, our main priority is your health and wellbeing. We want to see you into recovery without you having to worry about financial issues so that you can focus on your healing process in the way that suits you best.

We understand that filing a claim is probably not number one on your to-do list. However, claiming compensation can ensure that you are in a good financial position and don’t have to worry about you or your family taking time off work to recover, so you can do so in peace.

Cancer Misdiagnosis Claims

Our specialist medical negligence solicitors have a great deal of experience in handling cancer misdiagnosis cases, so you can rest assured that you’re in safe hands.

We always handle all claims with sensitivity and treat all clients with the utmost respect. Supporting you is our priority.

Cancer misdiagnosis is a real issue. Some of the most common types of claims our team has helped people with are:

  • Delay in cancer diagnosis claims
  • Misdiagnosis – being diagnosed with cancer when it is not present, or diagnosed with something else when it is present
  • Failure to diagnose – overlooking cancer symptoms altogether

Whichever type of misdiagnosis you have experienced, we understand how frustrated and let down you feel. We know that it can have a damaging impact on your life, and we can’t turn back time, but we can try to help you heal. We want to help you claim compensation so that you can look forward to the future.

Your Doctor’s Responsibility

We know that symptoms of cancer can often be difficult to diagnose and that there are many symptoms which are shared with other diseases, which can make your doctor’s job harder.

Despite this, if your doctor suspects that your symptoms may be cancer, they have a duty to refer you for the relevant tests. If they haven’t done this, they have breached their duty of care and put you at risk.

None of us want to think that doctors would do this, but sometimes mistakes happen. If their mistake has affected your health, we want to help you get compensated for the effects it has had.

We know that if you have experienced misdiagnosis it can be extremely emotionally difficult, and you may have worries about the future for yourself and your family. We’ll support you through this difficult time, and will always do our best to make sure you feel comfortable.

We can help get the compensation and justice you deserve so that you and your loved ones can look towards a brighter future.

How We Can Help You

We can help you by providing high quality legal advice as well as support and guidance, whenever you need it.

We understand that suffering due to a misdiagnosis can have a huge impact on your life. You may have to stop working, socialising, and you may completely lose trust in medical professionals. It can affect your relationships with family and friends, too.

If you have lost touch with friends, or had to give up work, or any other of the above then you deserve to be compensated. We want you to be able to focus on your healing process and look forward to the future, and compensation will help you do just that.

Above all, we’ll make you feel at ease through the whole process and will strive to get you the best possible result so that you can live comfortably once again, and look forward to the future.
