Having a cancer diagnosis, or seeing a loved one suffering from the disease, is one of the most troubling times in any person’s life, so it’s even worse when a cancer misdiagnosis is present in the situation. Every 2 minutes in the UK, a person is diagnosed with cancer. The current standard waiting time to be seen for an urgent cancer referral in the UK is 2 weeks. Diagnosis times can differ, but in some cases the cancer fails to be identified for an extended time and symptoms are mistaken for other medical issues.
An accurate diagnosis, particularly, an early one, is vital in forming the very first stage where the body and mind prepare to combat the disease. The chances of successfully battling against the disease are severely harmed when a patient gets a late cancer diagnosis after an initial misdiagnosis from a medical professional. Patients with an early accurate diagnosis have much a better prognosis on average than those who receive a late diagnosis. It is highly recommended that you engage a trusted cancer misdiagnosis solicitor if you or a loved is suffering after a cancer misdiagnosis by a medical expert.
Hampson Hughes, a team of medical negligence solicitors practising in Birmingham and around the country, offer reliable legal assistance for those seeking recompense after a cancer misdiagnosis. We have established a strong track record in pursuing cancer recompense claims for our clients, with our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors in Birmingham able to ensure the best chance of appropriate recognition and compensation.
We are aware that financial compensation cannot cover the consequences that follow a cancer misdiagnosis by a private healthcare facility or the NHS for a patient. However, any additional pain and suffering that emanate from a cancer misdiagnosis should be the subject of a claim. Every time cancer is allowed to go untreated, pain, suffering and loss of important time of the patient are experienced.
Hampson Hughes has a team of cancer misdiagnosis solicitors in Birmingham who work to ensure such situations are recognised. We may be able to help you secure the compensation you deserve, just like we have assisted many clients in Birmingham and across the UK. The right recompense plays an important part in assisting patients to experience more comfort as they are being taken care of. The financial support can be vital to an individual or family during the crucial recovery process.
You will know that cancer comes with a range of physical and emotional impacts that encroach on the lives of a patient and their loved ones, from family life to work. Of course, compensation for such a situation can be immensely helpful. The medical expert involved is the one responsible for offering a timely and accurate cancer diagnosis, so should they fail, a cancer misdiagnosis claim can be sought. Our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors in Birmingham offer their expertise, helping you deal with claims resulting from cases of cancer diagnosis failure.
A report that appeared in The Guardian in April 2017 stated that after surveying over 4,000 patients diagnosed with a form of cancer in accident and emergency departments, it was found that 41% of those who had sought previous medical help from their GP had visited 3 or more times. The study, by the British Journal of General Practice, also showed those diagnosed with cancer at an emergency stage have a considerably worse prognosis than those diagnosed at an earlier stage.
With our medical negligence solicitors here at Hampson Hughes, we are able to provide expert legal assistance to anyone pursuing a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim in your region. Through a consultation that we offer for free, our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors for clients in Birmingham can give you a clear assessment of your legal options after a thorough exploration of the details of your case.
Should a loved one have sadly passed on after a late diagnosis of cancer, Hampson Hughes also offers legal support to the families left behind. We fully understand that no compensation could ever replace a loved one, but it may be able to ease the burden of financial pressure due to the loss of a family member.
