98% of our Clinical & Medical Negligence Claims are funded by a No Win, No Fee agreement, which is formally called a Conditional Fee Agreement. This means there is no financial risk to you.
When you contact us for a free consultation and provide details of what happened, we can help you understand whether or not you have a claim for compensation.
Slater and Gordon can provide immediate legal representation and rehabilitation support anywhere in the UK. We also offer home and/or hospital visits particularly for people who cannot visit one of our eighteen offices in England, Scotland & Wales.
Our Medical Negligence Solicitors have recovered large awards of compensation where mistakes have led to serious delays in diagnosis. These have included mistakes by Pathologists (Doctors who examine cells under a microscope) in interpreting smear tests.
Cervical Cancer Misdiagnosis & Late Diagnosis
Delayed diagnosis or misdiagnosis of Cervical Cancer can be devastating. If cervical or ovarian cancer is diagnosed early the chance of cure may be good. Delays of a few months are unlikely to make any difference to the outcome. However if left, it is likely to grow. Treatment often involves surgery. The more the cancer grows the more the extensive surgery may need to be and, at worst, cancer can spread to other parts of the body.
Importance of Cervical Cancer Compensation
For people who become seriously ill with cancer and have a medical negligence claim, compensation may be very important for their quality of life. Compensation can enable them to have:
- Private medical treatment, avoiding delays and in greater comfort than in NHS hospitals;
- Nursing care at home;
- Help with housework;
- Money to make good any loss of earnings.
Where the patient sadly does not survive, a claim can provide for family members who relied on them financially or with domestic and other help.
