Accurate and timely diagnosis is critically important in cancer care, as early intervention can significantly improve the chances of making a positive recovery.

Unfortunately, mistakes can sometimes me made and signs of cancer are missed or cause a delayed cancer diagnosis. In some instances, a cancer misdiagnosis might mean a patient’s care plan is wrong or fails to deliver appropriate treatment.

When this happens, it can have a profound negative impact on overall health and well-being. The emotional scars can last a lifetime.

If you have suffered because of a cancer misdiagnosis, we understand that you might feel angry, frustrated and let down by the health professionals entrusted with your care.

With the help and support of our specialist cancer misdiagnosis solicitors, you can question those responsible about their failings and secure misdiagnosed cancer compensation for the traumatic impact on your life. We can also ensure steps are taken to minimise the chances of a similar situation happening to someone else.

Almost all of the cancer claims we handle are conducted on a no win, no fee basis, so there is no financial risk standing in the way of justice.

Our approach to Misdiagnosed Cancer Compensation Claims

Sadly, cases of delayed, missed and misdiagnosed cancer are not uncommon because of the increasing pressures faced by the NHS.

We understand that cancer misdiagnosis can lead to a rollercoaster of emotions. You may feel robbed of precious time with your family and loved ones. You might be angry that the disease has been allowed to spread, reducing the chances of recovery.

At a time when emotions are particularly strong, we believe the best way to handle a case is with care, compassion and patience. By adopting a hand-holding approach, we can carefully guide you through the cancer misdiagnosis compensation process and explain all the options available.

No Win, No Fee Cancer Claims Explained

When someone is suffering from the physical and emotional toll that cancer can have, we understand that they do not want to take any financial risks by making a claim for cancer misdiagnosis compensation.

To provide affordable access to justice when people most need it, almost all of the clinical negligence cases we handle are funded on a ‘No Win No Fee’ basis. Often known as a Conditional Fee Agreement or CFA, a ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreement means you will not pay a penny if you lose the case.

If you win, your opponent usually needs to cover most of your legal costs, and you will need to pay a success fee from the compensation. In effect, we share the risk with you because we only get paid if you win the case, no matter how technically complex it becomes or how long it takes to conclude.

However, there are other ways to fund a case and all other methods will be explained before you decide whether to pursue a claim, along with your chances of success and how to maximise the compensation you receive.
