Failure to Diagnose Cancer
Significant advances in medical technology over recent years have made it possible to treat and cure every type of cancer. It is however universally recognised that the key factor in the successful treatment of cancer is early detection, diagnosis and treatment. A delay or error on the part of a GP or medical professional may deprive a patient of receiving the treatment they need.
What can I Claim For?
Your 1stClaims solicitor will have experience of dealing with the following common cancer diagnosis problems:
- A failure or delay in referring a patient to see a consultant or arranging tests when displaying symptoms that should have been investigated further
- A failure or delay in arranging for a biopsy to be carried out when a physical examination reveals an abnormality
- A failure or delay in reacting to the results of a biopsy or scan
- Failure to recommend appropriate treatments
If you think this applies to you or a member of your family then you may have grounds for bringing a medical negligence claim. By contacting a 1stClaims solicitor on 0800 2888 693 for a no obligation discussion, you can find out whether you can claim compensation.
Cancer Misdiagnosis Claims
Have you been the victim of cancer misdiagnosis? You could be entitled to make a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim.
Because there are so many types of cancer, with so many varying symptoms, making an accurate cancer diagnosis can sometimes be difficult. The longer cancer is left untreated due to being undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, the harder it is to treat. Therefore all cases of cancer misdiagnosis are incredibly serious.
Some of the most common forms of cancer that are misdiagnosed or where the diagnosis is delayed are:
- Bladder Cancer
- Bone Cancer
- Bowel Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Cervical Cancer
- Colon Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Non Hodgkin Lymphoma
- Prostate Cancer
- Skin Cancer
- Testicular Cancer
- Cancer in Young People
How To Make A Claim
If you or a family member has suffered from a situation where cancer was not diagnosed or was misdiagnosed, you may be able to make a medical negligence claim. In cases where negative cancer results have been received, or the diagnosis has not been made at all, the cancer is left untreated. This may mean that the cancer becomes harder to treat or even untreatable.
1stClaims does not charge you for using our service and all initial enquiries with our Solicitors are also free of charge, so rest assured, this initial step of making an enquiry will not cost you anything.
Once one of our Solicitors has assessed the merits of your enquiry they will make a judgement on the likely chances of bringing a successful claim and if the prospects are good, they will normally offer to take your case on a No Win No Fee basis. You can find out more about No Win No Fee arrangements and the potential costs that can be incurred by clicking here.
In cases where the cancer was detected by a medical professional, but detected too late, you may also be able to make a claim for delayed cancer diagnosis.
