Anyone who has dealt with cancer or seen a loved dealing with it has a clear idea of how hard such a time is in any person’s life. Sadly, some people in and around Wigan will know how much worse the situation can turn in the case of a cancer misdiagnosis. To be seen for an urgent cancer referral in the UK, the standard waiting time at present 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.
For a better chance to fight the disease, an accurate timely diagnosis is needed. This will be the very first stage in readying your body and mind to combat the cancer. A late cancer diagnosis by a medical professional is always disadvantageous. Any patient who’s experienced a late diagnosis following a misdiagnosis has lower chances of battling against the disease as compared to those diagnosed at an earlier time and accurately.
If you or your loved has been a victim of a cancer misdiagnosis from any medical professional, the best thing to do is to engage a reliable cancer misdiagnosis solicitor. Hampson Hughes Solicitors offer a team of medical negligence solicitors practising in Wigan and across the UK, providing excellent legal assistance that you can trust. We have established a strong track record in assisting individuals pursuing cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims. Our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors offer clients in Wigan a chance at fair compensation.
We have an intimate understanding that no compensation from the NHS or any private healthcare facility could make up for the medical implications attributed to a cancer misdiagnosis. Nevertheless, any additional pain and suffering incurred due to a cancer misdiagnosis is a factor that merits a compensation claim. Whenever cancer goes untreated, it can lead to a loss of precious time with loved ones as well as more physical pain.
Our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors here at Hampson Hughes Solicitors will be able to assist you to secure the compensation you deserve. We have been of great help to many residents of Wigan and its surrounding areas. We strongly believe that during their recovery process, the right compensation could play an important part in offering more comfort to the patient.
Considering that cancer comes with a range of impacts, both emotional and physical, which can infringe a patient’s entire life, sufficient compensation can be of immense help. Late cancer diagnosis is often associated with the specific medical personnel involved and if their failure is considered as a cancer misdiagnosis then a compensation claim is sought. If you’re in or around Wigan, our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors will be able to assist you by holding the responsible parties accountable. Our legal expertise is of great help when you’re dealing with a professional who failed to diagnose cancer at the appropriate time.
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.
Hampson Hughes utilises its team of clinical negligence solicitors to deliver expert legal guidance when representing clients during a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim. Our cancer misdiagnosis lawyers in Wigan will offer a free consultation meeting in which we will provide you with a clear assessment of your legal options, after a careful and professional exploration of your case details.
Our team also provide legal support to families left behind when a relative passes on from cancer that was diagnosed at a late stage. We understand that compensation will never replace a loved one, but it may ease the financial burden a family may be experiencing after the loss of a loved one.
If you have suffered from a late cancer diagnosis after a misdiagnosis, either directly or indirectly, regardless of whether it’s possible to treat the disease or not, contact our medical negligence solicitors in Wigan today.

Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!
