Anyone suffering from cancer or having a loved one suffering from the disease knows how difficult the situation can be, but the situation can be considerably worsened by a cancer misdiagnosis. Every 2 minutes in the UK, a person is diagnosed with cancer. The standard waiting time to be seen for an urgent cancer referral is 2 weeks in the UK, with diagnosis times varying. There are, however, cases where cancer is not identified for an extended time, with symptoms mistaken for other medical issues.

It is extremely important that an accurate and timely cancer diagnosis is done. This forms the initial vital stage where the body and mind get ready to battle the disease. A late diagnosis resulting from a previous cancer misdiagnosis from a medical professional or a GP denies the patient a longer chance to successfully combat the disease. Unlike an earlier and accurate cancer diagnosis, a misdiagnosis leads to considerably lower chances of successfully tackling the cancer. If you or a loved one has been a victim of a cancer misdiagnosis from a medical professional, it is highly advisable to involve a qualified and trusted cancer misdiagnosis solicitor in the Wirral area.

Hampson Hughes, a team of expert medical solicitors serving clients in the Wirral and across the UK, offers reliable legal assistance. We possess a wealth of experience in this legal area, so we can help you successfully pursue a cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim. Our strong track record in successfully exploring cancer misdiagnose compensation claims is something you can rely on. We have been of great assistance to many of our clients by helping them to receive suitable recognition and recompense.

  • How Do I Know if I Have a Cancer Misdiagnosis Claim?

    Of course, our cancer misdiagnosis solicitors understand that no compensation could make up for all the medical consequences that follow a cancer misdiagnosis. However, any person who has had additional pain and suffering due to a cancer misdiagnosis from a private healthcare facility or the NHS should consider seeking a compensation claim. Cancer that has been allowed to go untreated leads to pain and in some cases, loss of important time with loved ones. If this happens due to a misdiagnosis then you should look for recompense, with our team of cancer misdiagnosis solicitors in the Wirral area able to assist you at this troubling time.

    Many clients on the Wirral have benefited from our legal expertise, as we have been able to obtain favourable recompense for their cancer misdiagnosis. By receiving sufficient compensation, a victim can get to maintain a level of support as they receive the care they need. Our legal professionals will seek a level of compensation which plays an important role in the recovery process.

    Considering the range of physical and emotional impacts on the patient’s overall life, from work through to family life, that result from cancer, a compensation claim can help. Cases of late cancer diagnosis may well be attributed to misdiagnosis from the specific medical professional involved. Hampson Hughes solicitors can help you to hold accountable any medical professional responsible for a cancer misdiagnosis. We assist residents on the Wirral to seek their cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims in an expert manner.

  • How Does a 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.

    With our team of medical negligence solicitors here at Hampson Hughes, we can offer expert legal support to all of our clients through the cancer misdiagnosis solicitor services we provide on the Wirral. We guide clients through the cancer misdiagnosis compensation claim process, offering a free consultation where we’ll be able to assess your case and determine its likely success rate and your overall legal options.

    Hampson Hughes also provides suitable and reliable legal support to families who have lost loved ones to cancer after a late diagnosis. While no compensation amount could ever replace a loved one, we know that financial compensation can ease the burden of any financial pressure following the death of a close relative.

Fantastic service, the attention to all the details was super impressive. They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Stephen McNorton

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!!
