Cancer Claims



Let us call you back at a convenient time.

Sadly, despite all the hospital tests available, a cancer diagnosis is sometimes negligently delayed or even mistaken for another health problem.

Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis can lead to loss of life expectancy, more aggressive and costly treatments, loss of income, scarring or disfigurement, and, in worst cases, premature death.

Common errors include...

  • Failing to identify obvious lumps;
  • Failing to order the proper test or properly interpret  test results;
  • Failing to recognise common signs and symptoms of cancer;
  • Diagnosing a tumour as benign or mistaking the tumour as a cyst or an infection;
  • Failing to follow-up.

If you feel your doctor or hospital has missed or ignored warning signs of cancer, or if you have received a delayed cancer diagnosis, you should seek the advice of a specialist medical negligence lawyer to evaluate your claim.
