Cancer

Negligence

Our lawyers are able to offer home visits for people who cannot attend our offices. These appointments can be out of office times an even on weekends if that is what you require.

Cancer claims can arise from a delay in the diagnosis or an incorrect diagnosis being made either by a GP or in hospital. Hundreds of people in the UK are diagnosed with cancer daily. Early diagnosis and treatment of cancer is essential in giving the patient the best chance of survival. Unfortunately it is not uncommon that diagnosis is delayed. The usual protocol requires your GP to recognise the signs and symptoms of cancer and for them to make an appropriate referral, so that this can be investigated and so that appropriate treatment can be delivered.

Cancer develops through stages. Where a diagnosis is missed and the delay leads to the cancer developing to a more advanced stage, the prognosis for survival and reduction in treatment options can be devastating.

If you or your family member has suffered from a delay in cancer diagnosis or an incorrect diagnosis which has led to the cancer developing to a more advanced stage, or resulted in unnecessary/avoidable treatment, contact us today. Call us for free on 01274 809696 or contact us online to speak to one of our lawyer and take the first step in starting your claim.
