Late cancer diagnosis claims
Cancer is a group of diseases where abnormal cell growth has the potential to invade or spread to other parts of the body.
Because it develops in various stages, there are opportunities for doctors and healthcare professionals to miss its onset or even make a cancer misdiagnosis. This can mean the cancer reaches a more advanced stage which may drastically increase its severity and the possible outcomes.
In some cases, a late cancer diagnosis will not make a big difference. However, there are instances where the impact can be extremely serious or even fatal.
Some examples of medical negligence errors we have seen concerning cancer misdiagnosis include:
Our approach to cancer misdiagnosis claims focuses on you and your family. We will assign a dedicated cancer claims specialist to your case who will be on hand to provide legal advice, support and guidance when you and your loved ones need it most.
Because there are so many different types of cancer, we have vast experience of securing cancer misdiagnosis compensation for delayed diagnosis in all of the following areas:
Whilst many cancers are now treatable, because of advances in medical science, an accurate diagnosis has a major bearing on a sufferer’s road to recovery.
The earlier you can detect the type of cancer which someone has obviously impacts on whether it will worsen and, possibly, become incurable.
However, mistakes can sometimes be made and patients can be misdiagnosed as having cancer or be told they are terminally ill when in fact that is not true.
In some cases, patients have unnecessarily had breast tissue removed, having been wrongly diagnosed with breast cancer.
This can have a severe psychological effect on someone. If this has happened to you or someone you know, call us today and speak to our cancer misdiagnosis claims team.
