Anyone dealing with cancer knows it’s one of the toughest times in anyone’s life, but there is no doubt that a cancer misdiagnosis worsens the situation. On average, once every 2 minutes an individual is diagnosed with cancer in the UK. The current standard waiting period to be seen for an urgent cancer referral in the UK is 2 weeks, with diagnosis times varying. There are, however, instances where the cancer is not identified for an extended time, with symptoms being mistaken for other medical issues.
It is of huge importance that an accurate diagnosis is done as early as possible. A timely diagnosis will usually form the first stage in readying the patient’s body and mind to combat the disease. A patient’s chances of successfully tackling the cancer are considerably reduced by a late diagnosis due to a previous cancer misdiagnosis. When compared with an early and accurately detected cancer, a late diagnosis leads to lower chances of battling against the disease.
If you or a loved one has experienced a cancer misdiagnosis from a GP or any other medical professional, it is highly recommended that you engage a trusted cancer misdiagnosis solicitor in Chester. Hampson Hughes has a team of reliable and expert medical negligence lawyers who you can entrust with your pursuit of a cancer misdiagnosis claim. We help clients in Chester to explore their cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim. We have established a strong track record, helping clients find the recognition and compensation they deserve.
Of course, no compensation from either a private healthcare facility or the NHS could ever make up for the medical consequences that result from a cancer misdiagnosis. That said, any additional pain and suffering attributed to a cancer misdiagnosis should definitely be the subject of a claim. When the cancer goes untreated, leading to more pain and even loss of precious time of loved ones, there’s need to recognise and provide recompense. Our cancer misdiagnosis lawyers at Hampson Hughes have assisted clients in Chester and across the UK secure substantial compensation.
We cannot stress how important sufficient recompense is in assisting patients to be more comfortable as they receive care. We recognise that financial support can be vital during the recovery process. With cancer coming with a range of physical and emotional impacts that encroach on a person’s entire life, from work to family life, a suitable compensation is definitely of great assistance.
A late cancer diagnosis is usually associated with the medical professional involved. Hampson Hughes Solicitors are the ideal legal experts to engage as you deal with a claim for a misdiagnosis of cancer. We are an experienced team of lawyers helping clients in Chester and the surrounding areas, able to legally assist you when you want to hold someone responsible of a misdiagnosis accountable. We can help you to handle a compensation claim when a medical expert fails to diagnose your cancer at a reasonable time.
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.
Our medical negligence lawyers offer a free consultation to give you a clear assessment of your legal options after an exploration of the details of your compensation claim case. Afterwards, one of our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors for Chester clients may be able to offer their excellent legal services, as we represent clients during their cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims in or around Chester.
Hampson Hughes can also provide legal support to families left behind by a deceased relative after a late cancer diagnosis. This compensation can never replace a loved one, but the aim is to help in easing any financial burden that presents itself when a family member passes on.
If you’re a victim of late cancer diagnosis after a misdiagnosis, whether directly or indirectly, you can contact us today. If the situation resulted from a cancer misdiagnosis, you should get suitable compensation.
