Cancer Misdiagnosis Claims

If you or a loved one have been diagnosed with a hernia, which subsequently turned out to be cancer you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.  This misdiagnosis may have delayed treatment, caused pain, suffering or tragically led to the unfortunate event of an early death,

Here at First Personal Injury, we are experts in misdiagnosis claims. There are two main types of medical misdiagnosis:

  • The first type is where a condition is completely undiagnosed by the doctor
  • The second type of misdiagnosis refers to an incorrect diagnosis. This might involve a person being given inappropriate treatment for their condition, making their symptoms worse.

Cancer misdiagnosis claims can involve complex issues about who is at fault for your negligent treatment and what could have been done to diagnose your condition sooner. It is therefore vital that you instruct a specialist medical negligence lawyer as soon as possible. You may also be able to claim if you have lost a family member after negligent treatment or misdiagnosis.

The Implications & Your Rights

Failure to identify the cancer and the subsequent delayed treatment may affect you in many ways. If you have to take time off from work this will result in loss of wages and other work-related benefits. This is likely to lead to stress and financial difficulties.

In addition, you may also incur additional expenditures for doctor’s bills and hospital visits as well. You might also purchase pain-relieving and inflammatory medications. If it can be proved that the extra pain, inconvenience and expenses were a direct result of the cancer not being diagnosed properly, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

How to claim

If you believe that you have a claim, it is advisable to contact a solicitor who specialises in misdiagnosis. Compensation may be payable if negligence can be proven.
