£60,000 for false diagnosis of lung cancer

A woman talks to another woman who is writing down notes
1 minute read

Our solicitors helped to secure £60,000 and an apology for a woman who was misdiagnosed with terminal lung cancer and was incorrectly given treatment for it.

Mary * spent five years believing her cancer was incurable and suffered severe irrecoverable psychiatric injuries as a result. The misdiagnosis changed her from a happy, positive woman to one who withdrew from her husband, family and friends.

It was only when Mary’s hospital trust reviewed her case that it was uncovered that Mary had never had lung cancer.

Initially, the hospital trust denied any wrongdoing, but independent experts said CT scans were wrongly interpreted in her case and vital sampling and biopsies not completed.

We secured £650,000 to assist an eight-year-old boy to cope with life after being blinded when there was a delay in diagnosing a brain tumour.
