How much will my claim cost?

All cancer negligence cases taken on by Hudgell Solicitors are handled on a no win no fee basis. This means that you will not have to pay any money up front and there will be no financial risk if your case is unsuccessful.

If your case is successful, you will only be expected to pay a contribution to your solicitor’s fees once the case has been resolved. The costs paid are usually a percentage of the compensation awarded and will be agreed before your case is carried out.

How do I make a cancer claim?

If you believe you or a member of your family has received poor medical treatment with regards to cancer, you may be able to make a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim. As a first step, our cancer claims solicitors are available to discuss your particular situation and the time limits that may apply.

We’ll conduct a free, confidential, no obligation consultation and listen to your circumstances. If we believe you have grounds to claim compensation, we’ll work with you to get the result you deserve.

This may involve working with independent medical professionals to understand the severity and impact that the misdiagnosis or late cancer diagnosis has had upon your health and your wellbeing.

We’ll contact those involved in your treatment to negotiate a settlement, and if they refuse to accept responsibility we can start court proceedings, helping you through the process every step of the way.

What types of cancer misdiagnosis are there?

Because there are so many different types of cancer, we have vast experience of securing cancer misdiagnosis compensation for delayed diagnosis in all the following areas:

  • Breast cancer
  • Lung cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Bowel cancer
  • Prostate cancer
  • Skin cancer (Melanoma)
  • Cervical cancer
  • Colon cancer
  • Testicular cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Thyroid cancer
  • Fibroadenoma cancer
  • Mesothelioma cancer
  • Lymphoma (cancer of the lymph)
  • Carcinoma
  • Adenocarcinoma
  • Cancer claims generally fall into two categories: misdiagnosis and late diagnosis:

    Cancer misdiagnosis cases

    Cancer misdiagnosis occurs when a healthcare professional or team of professionals make a mistake, resulting in your illness being incorrectly diagnosed and perhaps therefore incorrectly treated. Some examples of medical negligence errors we have seen concerning cancer misdiagnosis include:

  • X-rays and scans being misinterpreted.
  • Tissue samples and smear tests being incorrectly interpreted.
  • A lack of investigations into symptoms of ill health.
  • Delay in referring you to a specialist.
  • Failing to act or a delay in carrying out procedures such as biopsies.
  • Your doctor missing or misinterpreting the symptoms of cancer.
  • Your doctor misinterpreting your test results.
  • Late cancer diagnosis claims

    Cancer develops in various stages, and doctors and healthcare professionals may 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.

    How do I know if I have a cancer claim?

    Advances in medical science mean many cancers are now treatable, and an accurate diagnosis has a major bearing on a sufferer’s road to recovery. Early detection of cancer can impact chances of survival, and therefore a late diagnosis or misdiagnosis can affect whether a patient’s condition will worsen and, possibly, become incurable.

    Mistakes can also sometimes be made when patients are misdiagnosed as having cancer or be told they are terminally ill when in fact that is not true, which can have a serious psychological impact. In some cases, patients have unnecessarily had breast tissue removed, having been wrongly diagnosed with breast cancer.

    If this has happened to you or someone you know, call us today and speak to our cancer misdiagnosis claims team. We will listen to your story and help you understand whether you’re eligible to claim compensation, as well as work with you to ensure you get the justice you deserve.

    How can Hudgell Solicitors help me with my cancer misdiagnosis claim?

    Dealing with cancer and its effects is one of the most difficult times in life. It also impacts on the lives of our loved ones, so it is important to know that the health professionals in charge of administering care are doing everything possible to aid recovery.

    Unfortunately, we have dealt with a lot of clients where unnecessary delays or an incorrect cancer diagnosis has caused pain, fear, and suffering which could have been avoidable.

    If you, or someone you know, has cancer and a delayed diagnosis or mistake by doctors have led to further complications, you may be able to make a cancer compensation claim.

    Our compassionate team of cancer misdiagnosis lawyers and specialists will take care of every aspect of your claim, handling it with sensitivity and always putting the needs of you and your loved ones at the centre of everything we do.

    How much compensation will I receive for cancer misdiagnosis?

    The amount of compensation you may be entitled to depends on your individual circumstances and how seriously the misdiagnosis, or late diagnosis, has impacted your health and overall quality of life.

    Compensation can cover any expenses you’ve incurred because of the medical negligence, such as hospital bills, transports costs, and rehabilitation fees, along with loss of earnings and any future expenses that have arisen due to the medical negligence.

    Depending on the severity of your situation, you may also claim for compensation that reflects the pain and suffering you and your family have experienced (and may continue to experience) because of the misdiagnosis or late cancer diagnosis.

    Our expert cancer claims solicitors will be able to give you a better idea of what you may be entitled to, based on your story and similar cases they’ve seen.
