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 plays vital role in allowing you to be provided with the best chances of recovery. Consequentially any delays in diagnosis – or even a misdiagnosis – can severely affect chances of recovery. This type of delay or misdiagnosis can have a serious impact on both patient’s chances of recovery and their families.
If you or a loved one are currently experiencing the knock-on effects caused by 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, including giving you advice and support wherever we can as we work to resolve your claim.
While this is a relatively rare phenomenon, when negligence 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:
There are a variety of reasons why you might feel that a cancer compensation claim is justifiable. You could be a patient who isn’t satisfied with the treatment you’re receiving, and understandably may feel that you are entitled to a claim. Alternatively, a member of your family may be about to undergo a surgical procedure that could have been avoided had a proper initial diagnosis occurred. Here are a few more of the most common reasons why people pursue a claim:

What can cancer compensation help to cover?
Cancer takes far more than just an emotional toll on those diagnosed. It can also lead to some tangible financial incursions, both for patients themselves, and their families.
For example, you may have to pay for extra medical treatment, medication or care to help you fight the disease. So, as part of your cancer misdiagnosis settlement, your designated solicitor will aim to cover all the expenses inflicted by the negligence you suffered, including 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
