A legal case for compensation can allow for some form of justice to be received for what a patient has to go through. Here is how we can help.

Can you claim breast cancer compensation?

You could be eligible to claim breast cancer compensation on a No Win, No Fee basis if we consider that there is a case to answer.

When we look to see if we can take a claim forward, we will consider factors such as any late diagnosis arising from a misdiagnosis, or any suffering caused by late referrals for treatment, or inadequate treatment. If it is the case that you have suffered because of the negligence of a medical professional, that is when you should be eligible to make a claim.

We will normally need medical evidence to prove that there has been negligence. This will usually involve attending a medical appointment with a private expert whose report will be used as key evidence in the case.

What could you claim for?

A claim for breast cancer compensation is designed to make sure that the victim receives some form of justice for what has happened. Hopefully, recovery will take place, and the victim can be eligible to receive compensation for what they have had to go through.

We can take into account any pain and suffering during treatment, including for any operations. We can also factor in any long-lasting cosmetic effects from scarring and/or a mastectomy, if required. We can also look to claim for private treatment and cosmetic treatment if you choose to have this as well.

Generally speaking, personal injury compensation claims are formed from two parts:

  • General Damages: for any pain, suffering and loss of amenity caused; and
  • Special Damages: for any losses and expenses incurred as a result of the suffering and problems faced.

It is the Special Damages that can account for losses and expenses. Expenses can be private treatment and private surgery costs if this is something that will help, and this can include cosmetic implants. In terms of losses, things like lost earnings from time off work, or the cost of any medication and travel expenses to and from appointments.
