Cancer compensation claims could arise from any instance of GP negligence, nursing negligence, or hospital consultant staff negligence. Cancer compensation may be available if you have experienced medical negligence at any stage of your diagnosis or treatment.
Very pleased with Hampson Hughes staff and the way my case was dealt with. I have told several friends and family of your company.
A cancer diagnosis is made every two minutes in the UK. Although cancer may occur at any stage of life, the risk increases with age – over one third of diagnoses involve those aged 75 years or over, while fewer than 1% of all cancer diagnoses are made in patients aged 0-14 years.
Your cancer misdiagnosis claim could involve:
A delay in diagnosis may occur following a failure to arrange follow up testing. If you feel that your symptoms have been over looked, speak to us today for instant advice.
You could be eligible for compensation following any delay in receiving a referral to a relevant specialist – an incorrect referral could slow the progress of your treatment.
Compensation may be available following a misinterpretation of your test results. Examples include a misinterpretation of X-rays, blood tests, or tissue smears.
There are several types of cancer that are commonly misdiagnosed. If you feel that your symptoms were not recognised and subsequently were not treated within a reasonable time-frame, speak to us today. Commonly misdiagnosed cancers include:
Lung cancer symptoms typically mirror the symptoms of common lung infections such as pneumonia, bronchitis, and tuberculosis.
Your GP may misinterpret your breast cancer symptoms as symptoms of mastitis or fibrocystic breast disease.
Symptoms often closely reflect the symptoms of other related illnesses such as pancreatitis and diabetes.
Symptoms may be confused with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome and ulcerative colitis.
