Those who have dealt with cancer or have seen a loved one going through it know it’s one of the hardest times in a person’s life. Things can become even worse when a cancer misdiagnosis occurs. The standard waiting time at present to be seen for an urgent cancer referral in the UK is 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 medical issues.
To be able to combat the disease properly, an accurate and timely diagnosis is needed. This forms the first stage in readying your mind and body to deal with cancer. The chances of successfully battling against cancer are considerably lower if a patient receives a late diagnosis after an initial misdiagnosis.
If you or a loved one is experiencing suffering due to a cancer misdiagnosis from a medical professional, you = should engage a reliable cancer misdiagnosis solicitor. Hampson Hughes Solicitors, with our team of medical negligence solicitors operating around the area of Widnes, possess the expertise and experience to offer trusted legal assistance. We have established a strong track record in helping our clients in the area, and across the UK, to seek their cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim.
Certainly, no compensation by the NHS or a private healthcare facility to a patient could ever make up for the medical consequences related to a cancer misdiagnosis. Nevertheless, any further pain and suffering incurred that has been contributed by the misdiagnosis is reason enough to pursue a compensation claim. Cancer misdiagnosis leads to a late diagnosis, and when cancer is allowed to go untreated, it can lead to further pain and often sadly, loss of a family member’s precious time. Here at Hampson Hughes, we understand that there’s need for recognition and compensation in such a situation.
With the assistance of our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors, we’ll help give you the best chance of securing the compensation you deserve. Lots of clients in Widnes have benefited from the legal expertise of our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors. Obtaining a fair compensation amount is important, playing a key part in assisting the patient to experience more comfort as they receive care during the recovery process.
Since cancer comes with a range of both emotional and physical impacts that can affect a patient’s life, from family to work, a suitable financial compensation can be of immense assistance. A cancer misdiagnosis leading to a late diagnosis is often the failure of the medical professional involved. This leads to the pursuit of a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim, where you can rely on our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors to provide expertise that will help you hold the medical personnel responsible accountable for failing to diagnose cancer early on.
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.
Hampson Hughes’ team of clinical negligence solicitors offer excellent representation that those seeking a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim need. Our professionals in Widnes will provide a free consultation meeting and give you the legal options you can explore after a clear evaluation of your case details.
Our personable experts can also legally support families left behind by a loved one lost to cancer following a late diagnosis. We are fully aware and we understand that no compensation could ever replace a relative but it is quite important since it eases the financial burden that may set in after their relative has died.
If you or a loved one is a victim of a late cancer diagnosis after a misdiagnosis, regardless of whether the cancer can be treated or not, you should contact us to discuss the legal options you have. We have a team of friendly legal experts who are always ready and happy to help. Reach us today and we’ll discuss the details of your case and determine if you’re eligible to seek a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim.
