Cancer Claims

The most common claims in this area are brought against GPs for failing to suspect cancer and instead of referring patients to Hospital on the urgent 2 week cancer pathway, weeks or even months go by without a diagnosis or treatment being given. This leads to a much more advanced case of cancer being diagnosed at a later date requiring more extensive treatment being required and potentially fatal consequences, in what otherwise may have been a treatable condition.

Of course, mammograms or other tests can be filed without being actioned leading to delays in diagnosis or treatment. Other times, you may be the victim of misdiagnosis receiving the wrong treatment allowing the disease to spread in the interval. Whether your claim involves a misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or treatment by a GP or at Hospital, we can assist.

At Thomson & Bancks, our medical negligence specialists will deal sensitively and efficiently with your claim for compensation or that brought on behalf of a loved one’s Estate. The civil law attempts to place people back in the same place as they would have been had they not been injured by a medical mistake or left untreated so they have not fully recovered as they should have done.

Where that is not possible, an increasing amount of damages are payable for where the consequences have been more serious for you. Also, financial losses caused by the injury or non-recovery of your condition are claimable, for instance, if you are not able to return to work or require extra services because of a resulting disability which would have been avoided had there been no negligence.

If you or your family have been affected by medical negligence, please call our specialist Solicitor, Lucy Sherry, on 01242 235250 to find out if you may have a claim. We will offer you a first free interview to learn about the next steps and our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements for funding your legal claim.
