Cancer causes a major impact on any victim’s life, but a cancer misdiagnosis can worsen the situation considerably. Once every 2 minutes on average, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There is a standard waiting time to be seen for an urgent cancer referral in the UK of 2 weeks at present, with diagnosis times varying. There are some cases where the cancer is not identified for an extended time, with symptoms mistaken for other issues.
A late cancer diagnosis is hugely harmful, as it denies an individual the chances of battling against the disease successfully. In fact, patients diagnosed with cancer at a late stage have much lower chances of tackling the disease than those whose cancer was accurately detected earlier on. If you’re a victim of a cancer misdiagnosis, you should involve the legal services of a dependable cancer misdiagnosis solicitor for those in the Leeds area.
Hampson Hughes Solicitors, a team of expert medical negligence lawyers practising in the area of Leeds and across the UK, deliver excellent legal expertise that you can trust. The strong track record that we have established in assisting our clients to pursue cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims in Leeds is something you rely on. We are trusted legal professionals who help to secure suitable recognition and compensation.
There’s no doubt that no compensation could ever make up for the medical consequences attributed to a cancer misdiagnosis, but any further pain and suffering caused that can be attributed to a cancer misdiagnosis should be recognised with a compensation claim. Whenever a cancer misdiagnosis happens, cancer is allowed to go untreated up to the time of the late diagnosis, causing additional pain and, often, loss of precious time.
Since we understand that such a case needs recognition and compensation, our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors here at Hampson Hughes Solicitors will be able to legally represent many clients in Leeds and all over the country. A substantial compensation figure plays an important role in assisting our clients to experience more comfort as they receive care during the recovery process. We know that cancer comes with a range of physical and emotional impacts that usually encroach a patient’s life, from family to work.
We, therefore, fully understand that fair and sufficient financial support can be of great assistance at this hard time in a patient’s life. A late diagnosis is usually regarded as the mistake of the specific medical professional/s involved with any cancer misdiagnosis, leading to a compensation claim pursuit. Our solicitors offer the expertise to help you hold the responsible professional/s accountable. We are the legal experts to consult if you want to deal with a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim in Leeds or its surrounding areas.
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 71% of those surveyed had sought previous medical help from their GP. 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.
The team of clinical negligence solicitors here at Hampson Hughes offers the proper legal representation to our clients in and around Leeds. With the assistance of our cancer misdiagnosis lawyers, we provide a free consultation to explore your case details in order to give you a clear evaluation of your legal options.

Our personable cancer misdiagnosis solicitors also provide legal support to families left behind by a patient who lost their life to cancer following a misdiagnosis.
