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. This may be due to your GP failing to refer you to the hospital for further investigation. Or the hospital may fail to follow up test results or incorrectly report results of scans.

It may be that a delay in diagnosis has unfortunately meant the prospects of successful treatment are reduced. Or that you require more invasive treatment.

Common problems that arise in relation to cancer include the following:

  • Failure to recognise early signs
  • Delay in diagnosis
  • Failure to treat and/or delay in treating
  • Clinical/ Surgical error
  • Mixing up of tissue samples
  • Misinterpretation of results

Some of our cases

  1. We are instructed by the widow of a man. He passed away following a delay in diagnosing his throat cancer. His GP failed to follow National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) Guidance. This was despite him meeting the criteria for throat cancer on a number of visits to his GP and requiring an urgent referral to hospital. Tragically, our client's husband passed away after a difficult battle with the disease
  2. Our client was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. Her diagnosis should have been many months earlier but was missed by the radiology team. Sadly, our client passed away recently.
