The news that you, or a loved one, has been diagnosed with cancer can be one of the hardest things to hear. In such difficult circumstances, you expect treatment of a high standard – there are enough other things to worry about.

Cancer Treatment Claims
Cancer misdiagnosis claims are often brought for the following reasons:
- Missed or delayed diagnosis, leading to the condition becoming worse or terminal
- Failure to provide adequate treatment promptly after diagnosis
- Poorly performed cancer-removal surgery resulting in further damage
- Inadequate follow-up care, including errors in radiotherapy and chemotherapy
Cancer treatment claims can involve complex issues about who is at fault for your injuries and what could have been done to prevent them, and so it is important that you instruct a specialist clinical negligence solicitor with experience in this area. You may also be able to claim if you have lost a family member after negligent treatment.
