According to Cancer Research UK, 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed with some type of cancer in our lifetimes, which makes it a leading cause of death here in the UK.
Receiving a cancer diagnosis is a life-changing experience, and an early diagnosis is vital to providing the best chances of recovery. On the other hand, any delays in diagnosis – or even a misdiagnosis – can severely affect the chances of recovery. When this type of delay or misdiagnosis arises from human error, it can have a serious impact on both patients and their families.
If you or a loved one are currently having to deal with the consequences of cancer negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Here at Farleys, our experienced solicitors are committed to doing everything we can to make this difficult process as easy as we can for you, minimising any unnecessary stress and giving you advice and support wherever we can as we work to resolve your claim.
Cancer misdiagnosis is an extremely serious issue currently facing our healthcare system here in the UK. While misdiagnosis is relatively rare, when it occurs as the result of negligence, the results can be devastating – especially if it impacts the patient’s life expectancy.
There are over 200 types of cancer, so the scope for delayed or misdiagnosis is fairly far reaching. So, if you or a loved one is currently dealing with the outcome of a cancer misdiagnosis, our medical negligence solicitors are here to help you get the compensation you deserve. Here at Farleys, we have a wealth of experience in this field, and have previously represented clients in the following areas:
You could be a patient who isn’t happy about the treatment you’re receiving, and understandably may feel that you are entitled to a medical negligence claim. Alternatively, a member of your family may be faced with a surgical procedure due to a misdiagnosis – a procedure that possibly could have been avoided had the correct diagnosis originally been given.
There are a variety reasons why you might consider consulting a solicitor about a claim for cancer compensation. For example, you may feel that:

How will Farleys help me through this process?
We provide each of our clients with their own medical negligence solicitor who will work as their single point of contact throughout the process. This is to ensure that we can provide total confidentiality throughout the duration of a client’s case. Our specialist remains with the client every step of the way, and can provide them with all the support and advice required to launch a claim.
What can cancer compensation help to cover?
Cancer doesn’t just take a mental and emotional toll, but a tangible financial one too – both for patients themselves, and their families.
For example, you may have had to pay for extra medical treatment, medication or care. Therefore, as part of your cancer misdiagnosis settlement, your designated solicitor will work to secure you an outcome that covers all the expenses caused by the negligence you suffered, including travel, accommodation, the effect your cancer has had on your social life, hobbies, career and future.
We truly value and appreciate the feedback we receive from our clients, as we look to improve the services we offer on an ongoing basis
