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 an early diagnosis of cancer can drastically improve the chances that a cancer patient will be able to beat the disease. Therefore, any delays or misreadings during diagnosis can severely impact the likelihood of recovery. Plus, it’s not just the recipient of the diagnosis that will be affected by the consequences of cancer negligence – this kind of mistake can have a significant impact on the emotional and financial wellbeing of their family and friends.
If you or a member of your family is currently enduring the consequences of cancer negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Here at Farleys, we are committed to doing everything we can to make this difficult process as easy as we can. We can give you the advice and support required to help you to resolve your claim.
Delayed or misdiagnosis can occur for a variety of different reasons. It’s not a common occurrence, but when a mistake does occur, it can be devastating – especially if it has a direct impact on 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 either you or a loved one has had to needlessly suffer as a result of cancer negligence, 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:
There are a variety of different reasons why you might feel that a cancer compensation claim is worth pursuing.

What can cancer compensation help to cover?
A late cancer diagnosis or misdiagnosis can impose a significant emotional and financial toll on both you and your family. This kind of negligence could mean you’ve had to pay for extra medical treatment, medication or care to help with your recovery from the disease. Therefore, as part of your cancer negligence settlement, your designated solicitor will aim to cover all the expenses inflicted by the negligence you have had to deal with. This includes added costs for things like travel, accommodation, and the effect your cancer has had on your social life, hobbies, career and future.
