There’s no doubt that dealing with cancer is among the toughest times in any person’s life, but it can be even worse if a cancer misdiagnosis happens, adding to the pain a cancer patient already undergoes. Once every 2 minutes, an individual in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. There is a standard waiting time to be seen for urgent cancer referral in the UK, on average 2 weeks, with diagnosis times varying. In some cases, however, the cancer is not identified for an extended time and symptoms are mistaken for other issues.
It is always very important for an accurate diagnosis to be made, a key part in the initial stage of getting your body and mind ready to deal with the disease. One of the biggest issues that can come from a cancer misdiagnosis is receiving delayed treatment for the disease, with the chances of a patient successfully battling against the disease considerably decreasing compared to a person with accurate and early detection of cancer.
Residents of London who may have suffered from a cancer misdiagnosis by a medical professional may need to involve a qualified and trusted cancer misdiagnosis solicitor. Hampson Hughes, with our team of clinical negligence experts, possesses the legal expertise and experience you can rely on. Our strong track record in pursuing cancer compensation claims is something you can trust us for. We work to ensure our clients in London and across the country get the recognition and compensation they deserve.
Any compensation for anyone misdiagnosed by a private healthcare facility or the NHS could never make up for all the medical implications that resulted. Nevertheless, any additional pain and suffering a patient experiences following a cancer misdiagnosis should lead to a claim in light of this fact. Any time that a professional allows cancer to go untreated, there’s need for recognition and recompense for the additional pain caused as well as potentially the loss of important time with your loved ones.
Our expert misdiagnosis solicitors will be of great assistance, as they have been to many clients in and around London and across the UK, helping our client secure an appropriate recompense. We understand the importance of sufficient compensation, how it can play a role in assisting patients to deal with the hard times presented by the disease. Proper compensation can enable a person to be more comfortable as they receive care through the recovery process. With the physical and emotional impacts associated with cancer that can impact a patient and their loved ones’ lives, a sufficient financial compensation will be of great assistance.
Here is where our team at Hampson Hughes can help. It is the responsibility of the medical professional involved to perform a proper procedure leading to an accurate diagnosis. If this is not done, and a cancer misdiagnosis happens, the medical experts involved are at fault. In such a case, one can explore a cancer misdiagnosis claim. Our expertise is available to people in London and its surrounding areas, dealing with cases involving the failure of a medical expert to diagnose cancer. Responsible parties should be held accountable.
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.
As we represent individuals seeking a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim, our medical negligence team at Hampson Hughes offer expert legal assistance, enabling you to get satisfying results. We offer a free consultation that allows you to explore your case details as well as give you a clear assessment of your legal options.
