Unfortunately cancer is very common and although advances in medicine and treatment have been made, mistakes can be made by doctors that can be catastrophic.
One of the most common difficulties is a failure to diagnose cancer. If you or a loved one has suffered as a result of a missed diagnosis or negligent treatment, our medical negligence solicitors that specialise in cancer claims will be able to help you make a claim for compensation.
Our Client Promise
Our specialist lawyers will be able to advise you on whether you have a good chance of claiming compensation, as well as assessing your claim’s value. All of our initial consultation work is free and the vast majority of claims go on to be funded by a conditional fee agreement (also known as “no win, no fee”).
We pride ourselves on our customer service. As part of our customer promise, we will seek to obtain an early settlement for you. We also aim to ensure that you get all the rehabilitation support that you need. Where possible we will seek to obtain interim compensation payments which may be used to provide financial support for your family or pay for your continuing care.

Examples of the sort of claims that can be made relate to: –

- Lung cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Liver cancer

Assessment of Cancer Claims
Cancer can take many forms and it is vital that someone suffering from cancer is referred to the correct expert and that correct investigations and tests are undertaken in order to arrive at a correct diagnosis and plan for treatment. Failure to diagnose cancer or a delay in diagnosis can have a big impact on a patient’s recovery. If the cancer is allowed to grow unchecked and untreated, it may be more difficult or impossible to treat at a later stage.
When you contact us we will seek to understand the facts concerning your individual case and provide you with some initial advice. Our dedicated team of solicitors will also talk you through the claim process so you can make an informed decision about whether to progress your claim.
