A diagnosis of cancer is a devastating event for any patient and their family. This is even more true if there has been a delay in reaching the diagnosis, or a misdiagnosis of the condition which has subsequently to be revised. The consequences of such delays can be profound and can significantly affect the outcome for the patient. In addition, failures in care can arise while cancer is being treated, leading to significant injuries which have lasting and debilitating effects for the patient.
If you (or a loved one) have experienced a delay in reaching the correct diagnosis of your cancer or have suffered an injury due to negligent treatment, we are here to help. We are expert lawyers with an understanding of how vital it is to get you the much needed help and compensation to which you are entitled.
Why Make A Claim?
If you have suffered a delayed diagnosis of cancer, or an injury due to cancer treatment as a result of medical negligence, you are entitled to claim compensation. A diagnosis of cancer means that your life has changed in every way possible and it can have a serious impact on your quality of life if there is a delay in diagnosing your disease, or negligent treatment results in injury to you.. We want to ensure you peace of mind, and the necessary assistance to allow you to enjoy life once more. Our specialist solicitors have years of experience of helping people who have suffered injury due to another’s fault or negligence.
Supporting Your Needs
As we have said a delayed diagnosis of cancer or a negligent cancer treatment injury can be life-changing and seriously affect your quality of life. You may require specialist treatment and equipment in your home to manage your condition and allow you as much independence as possible. While a diagnosis of cancer will probably affect your ability to work, even when the diagnosis is made at the correct time and treatment is given correctly, delays and treatment mishaps may mean that your ability to earn is affected for a longer period, or even permanently.
We can assist with vocational re-training, if appropriate, and assessing the financial costs to you of being unable to work for an extended period, or changing employment. The financial impact of all these things can be substantial. This is why it is vital to make a claim so we can ensure you obtain the settlement you deserve and require to safeguard your future and that of your family..
