Expert cancer negligence solicitors who sensitively handle oncology claims for clients nationwide
It is often viewed as the silent killer that has no cure. However, much research shows that the chances of surviving are much greater if diagnosis is achieved promptly.
You may have a cancer negligence claim if there has been a delay in your diagnosis.
If you think you have a medical negligence claim involving cancer, you NEED to call us
This may be due to your GP failing to refer you to the hospital for further investigation or the hospital failing to follow up test results or incorrectly reporting the results of scans. We will need to show that the treatment that you received was below a reasonable standard of care and that this has probably had a negative impact on your recovery.
Doctors have a duty of care to follow reasonable standards to test for possible malignant tumours given a patient’s symptoms.
It may be that the delay of diagnosis has unfortunately meant the prospects of successful treatment are diminished or that more invasive treatment is required.
