We have considerable knowledge and expertise in a wide range of cancer clinical negligence cases, including:
Delayed diagnosis of cancer
Cancer develops through various stages. Where opportunities to diagnose the disease are missed and it’s progressed to a more advanced stage, the delay will have made a difference to the outcome. Sometimes the effect is extremely serious.
Our specialist solicitors have succeeded in winning compensation for many clients who’ve experienced a delay in diagnosis because:
We help clients to win substantial compensation in cases of delayed diagnosis of a wide range of cancers, including:
Incorrect diagnosis of cancer
We also help our clients to get compensation for misdiagnosed cancer. Some people have undergone unnecessary surgery and other medical treatments because they were wrongly told they were at risk, while others have developed a severe psychological reaction to believing that they’re terminally ill.
For example, our experts have won significant awards for patients who’ve wrongly been diagnosed with breast cancer and who’ve had breast tissue removed unnecessarily.
If an incorrect diagnosis of cancer has caused you physical or psychological harm, don’t hesitate to get in touch. You can call our solicitors on freephone 0808 175 8000 or contact us online and we’ll call you.
Slater and Gordon Lawyers don’t believe you should have to risk your finances to pursue compensation when you’ve suffered as a result of clinical negligence in your cancer care. That’s why we offer No Win No Fee services. In fact, the vast majority of our personal injury claims (98%) are funded in this way.
Also known as Conditional Fee Agreements, these arrangements mean that if you don’t succeed in your claim, you won’t have to pay your lawyer for the work they’ve done. Knowing this can give you added peace of mind throughout the claims process and it means you have one less thing to worry about during what can be a stressful and difficult time. If you do succeed, the other party will cover your compensation and legal costs. The only thing you may be required to pay is a ‘success fee’, which is generally calculated as a proportion of your compensation.
When you come to Slater and Gordon to claim compensation for misdiagnosed cancer, we’ll explain No Win No Fee agreements to you in detail so you know exactly what they involve and can make an informed decision concerning how to fund your claim.
Clinical negligence claims for misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis of cancer can be complex.
