Dealing with cancer, either ourselves or seeing a loved one go through it, is one of the hardest times in anyone’s life, but the issue can be made even worse by a cancer misdiagnosis. On average, once every 2 minutes a person in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. When dealing with cancer, an accurate diagnosis is usually the first stage in preparing your mind and body to battle against the disease.

For any patient who receives a late cancer diagnosis due to a misdiagnosis from a medical professional, their chances of successfully combatting the disease are usually much lower than those who have their cancer detected early and accurately. For anyone who may have suffered a cancer misdiagnosis by a medical professional, it is highly recommended that you get in touch with a trusted cancer misdiagnosis solicitor.

Here at Hampson Hughes, our team of clinical negligence experts can provide trusted legal guidance for those exploring a cancer misdiagnosis claim in Liverpool or around the country. We have a strong track record of exploring cancer compensation claims for our clients, ensuring they receive fair acknowledgement.

  • How do I know if I have a cancer misdiagnosis claim?

    Of course, compensation for any patient misdiagnosed by the NHS or a private healthcare facility could never make up for the medical implications of a cancer misdiagnosis, but any additional pain and suffering caused, that can be shown to have been contributed to by the cancer misdiagnosis, should be the subject of a claim.

    Any time that cancer is permitted to go untreated, resulting in further pain and/or the loss of vital time with loved ones, there needs to be recognition and recompense. Here at Hampson Hughes, our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors have helped clients in Liverpool to secure the compensation they deserve.

    We recognise that sufficient compensation could play a key part in helping patients to be more comfortable during their care and receive vital financial support through any recovery process. Cancer has a range of physical and emotional impacts that can infringe on everything from work to family life, so a compensation amount can be a great help. The usual waiting time to be seen for an urgent cancer referral is 2 weeks in the UK. Diagnosis times can vary, but in some cases the cancer is not identified for an extended period, with symptoms mistaken for other medical issues.

    When such a late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer does happen, it is a failure by the medical professional/s involved and a cancer misdiagnosis claim can be pursued.  We offer our expertise as cancer misdiagnosis lawyers in Liverpool and the surrounding areas, dealing with claims in cases where there is a failure to diagnose cancer and where those responsible need to be held accountable.

  • How do cancer misdiagnosis claims in the UK work?

    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.

    Here at Hampson Hughes, our medical negligence team can provide expert legal guidance to those who we represent in any cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim. Our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors in Liverpool can help you explore the details of your case via a free consultation, giving a clear assessment of your legal options.

    We can also offer legal support to families left behind after a loved one has passed away from cancer after a late diagnosis. Compensation can never replace the loved one, but it can help ease the burden of any financial pressure that presents itself after a relative has died.
