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 for a no obligation discussion, you can find out whether you can claim compensation.
