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.
By receiving an early diagnosis of cancer, you drastically improve the chances that you’ll be able to beat the disease and a full recovery. So, any delays in diagnosis – or even a misdiagnosis – can severely impact these chances. A delay or misdiagnosis of cancer can have a serious impact on both the recipient of the diagnosis and their family.
If you or a loved one are currently enduring 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, and we’re here to give you advice and support wherever we can as we work to resolve your claim.
While negligence is relatively rare phenomenon, when it does occur, it 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, should you find that either you or a loved one has suffered the misfortune 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:

Alternatively, a member of your family may be faced with a surgical procedure that could have been avoided had they been given an accurate initial diagnosis. There are a multitude of different reasons why you might feel that a compensation claim would be your best course of action:

What can cancer compensation help to cover?
A late cancer diagnosis or misdiagnosis can take both a significant emotional and financial toll on both the recipient of the diagnosis and their family. As a result of cancer negligence, you may be forced to pay for extra medical treatment, medication or care to help with your recovery from the disease. Therefore, as part of your cancer misdiagnosis settlement, our solicitor will aim to cover all the expenses inflicted by the negligence you suffered. This includes added costs for things like travel, accommodation, and 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
