Suffering from cancer, or seeing a loved one suffer from the disease, is one of the worst moments in any person’s life, but this event can be worsened if it involves a cancer misdiagnosis. Once every 2 minutes, a patient in the UK receives a cancer diagnosis. When facing cancer, a timely and correct diagnosis should be the first key stage in readying your mind and body to fight the disease.
Any time a patient receives a cancer misdiagnosis or late diagnosis from a GP or other medical professional, the chance of them successfully beating the disease are considerably lower than those who receive an early and accurate diagnosis. Anyone who has been the victim of a cancer misdiagnosis from any type of medical professional should contact a trusted cancer misdiagnosis lawyer to discuss their legal options.
Hampson Hughes Solicitors offer an expert clinical negligence team who will be able to provide helpful legal advice for anyone considering a cancer misdiagnosis claim in Manchester or across the region. We have a wealth of experience in successful cancer compensation claims on behalf of our clients, helping them to receive fair recognition and compensation.
While it is true that financial compensation cannot make up for all of the medical implications suffered by a cancer misdiagnosis, any patient whose cancer was misdiagnosed by the NHS or a private healthcare facility should consider a claim for any additional pain and suffering caused due to the cancer misdiagnosis.
Whenever cancer is allowed to go untreated, it can lead to further pain and/or loss of precious moments with family and friends, which should be recognised in any compensation claim. Here at Hampson Hughes Solicitors, our team of cancer misdiagnosis solicitors have been able to offer legal assistance to many clients in Manchester, helping them to receive fair compensation for their misdiagnosis.
Helping our clients to achieve the right level of compensation is something that can assist them in maintaining a level of comfort while they receive their care, with financial support a key factor for many in their recovery process. Given the range of physical and emotional impacts that cancer can have on factors ranging from work to family life, a significant compensation figure is a real help. The standard waiting time to be seen for an urgent cancer referral in the UK is 2 weeks, with diagnosis times varying, but in some cases the cancer is not identified for an extended time and symptoms are mistaken for other medical issues.
If there is a case where late diagnosis or misdiagnosis of cancer does occur, it will likely class as a failure of any medical professional/s involved, with a cancer misdiagnosis case able to be pursued. We can provide our legal expertise as cancer misdiagnosis solicitors for Manchester and the wider region, handling cases in which there has been a failure to diagnose the cancer and 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 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.
