Cancer Claims

Can Find What your lookingWhen somebody is diagnosed with cancer, the news is devastating and can have long term financial and emotional implications for both that person and the people around them. Medical negligence is the last thing anyone would want to consider at this difficult time, however, it may have occurred.

Negligence can arise in a number of ways:

  • Failure by a GP to detect or act upon symptoms
  • Delay by a GP in referring the patient to a cancer specialist or a hospital for further investigations
  • Negligence by the hospital in analysing and reporting on a smear test
  • Negligent exposure to high doses of radioactivity
  • Delay in hospital in confirmation of diagnosis
  • Incorrect diagnosis of the type of cancer

Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer and the condition is responsible for one in four of all deaths.
