Category: Delayed Treatment and Diagnosis
When cancer treatment is delayed, the consequences for patients can be extremely severe, whether they involve prolonged pain or further spreading of the disease. As such, in cases where medical practitioners have caused unwarranted delays to treatment, and the patient’s health has consequently been negatively affected, there may be sufficient reason to make a medical negligence claim.
If you have suffered from worsened health due to delays in your cancer treatment, you should not have to face these complications without consequences for the doctors who have neglected to progress your treatment. We all know that the NHS has been under strain for several years and has been under increased pressure due to the coronavirus pandemic and resource restraints. However, this does not mean cancer treatment can be pushed to one side without repercussions.
As one of the most harmful and feared health conditions, cancer can be highly prevalent, with many people developing the condition at least once over the course of their lives. Despite its prominence, there are still cases in which doctors make diagnosis errors for patients suffering from cancer. In some cases, incorrect diagnoses can be understandable, but where the opportunity to make the correct evaluation was there but has been neglected, a doctor could be responsible for medical negligence. If you have been affected by a case such as this, you could be eligible to claim compensation for misdiagnosed cancer.
We trust our doctors to use their medical expertise and experience in their efforts to diagnose a condition. Where their limits are reached, we expect to be referred for further testing or to a different specialist. When doctors skip or ignore steps in this important process, the health of the affected patients can be put at serious risk, particularly where degenerative conditions like cancer are involved.
If you have been let down by a medical professional, and your health has suffered as a consequence, you could be eligible to claim compensation for the harm caused. As specialists in this area of law, we can help you to seek the justice that you deserve.
As patients, we trust that our doctors will do their utmost to look into our symptoms, reach an accurate diagnosis, and treat the condition accordingly. Unfortunately, lax or even prejudiced and dismissive attitudes can lead to a failure to properly investigate a medical matter, in which medical professionals may neglect to establish the source of a patient’s pains and problems.
Unfortunately, unfair biases can still sometimes exist in the healthcare sector, with some professionals failing to properly consider the correct course of treatment. In some of the worst cases, a failure to investigate a patient’s symptoms could cause significant damage to their health, leaving the real health problem completely ignored.
If you believe you have fallen victim to a medical breach of duty, and your health has suffered as a consequence, you could be eligible to make a medical negligence claim. Our specialist lawyers have proven experience in holding medical professionals to account for any harm they may have caused, which is essential if we are to ensure the future safety of patients, and if we are to achieve justice for those affected.

When we call an ambulance, we are expecting urgent, high-quality care for a healthcare emergency. In the few minutes when paramedics first arrive, they need to make important decisions about the needs of the patient, aiming to stabilise their condition and decide whether they need hospital care. The role of a paramedic is a high-pressure one, but that does not excuse errors in the care that they provide. Where emergency care has failed you or a loved one, causing health complications, you may be eligible to make a claim for paramedic negligence.
Paramedics are specialist medical professionals, so we have a right to expect high-quality treatment from them, just as we would from our doctors. This means that lapses in the standard of care they provide must be taken seriously, and can be accounted for in medical negligence claims.
