Misdiagnosed Cancer Claims
A claim for compensation can be sought if you or a family member have been incorrectly diagnosed with a hernia which subsequently turned out to be cancer. This misdiagnosis may have cost you valuable time: delaying treatment, causing pain/suffering or tragically leading to a premature death.
At Jefferies Solicitors, we specialise in cancer misdiagnosis claims. Below we have outlined the two main cases in which medical misdiagnosis occurs:
The first case is where an illness is completely missed or undiagnosed by a doctor.
The second case occurs when an incorrect diagnosis is specified. This could potentially involve a patient being prescribed the wrong treatment for their condition, worsening their symptoms.
These misdiagnosis claims can fall under a ‘grey area’ with regard to who is at fault for the negligent treatment and any resulting outcomes or consequences of that treatment. Cases such as these can be time-critical and we recommend that you instruct a specialist clinical negligence solicitor as early as possible. You may also claim for a lost family member following negligent treatment or misdiagnosis.
The Consequences and Your Rights
Any delayed or incorrect treatment after a failure to identify cancer can impact your life in several ways. Taking time off work could result in the loss of wages and other work-related benefits. The stress and financial difficulties associated with this can be paramount.
Doctor’s bills, hospital visits and pain-relieving medications can also lead to extra, unanticipated expenses. In cases where it can be proved that these extra costs were incurred as a direct result of the cancer being misdiagnosed, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
How Can I Claim?
Our solicitors specialise in misdiagnosis compensation cases and will be happy to discuss further details if you believe you have a claim. If negligence can be proven then compensation may be payable.
