Cancer Misdiagnosis Compensation Claims
Although cancer misdiagnosis hasn’t been as prevalent recently as it was in years gone by, the fact remains that mistakes are still made. Whilst some people have been told that they have cancer when they don’t, others have suffered a great deal of heartache and trauma after discovering that they do have cancer after being told that they don’t. The psychological effects of a misdiagnosis can be heart breaking, but Blackwater Law can offer you the legal support that you need if you or someone close to you has been the victim of a misdiagnosis.
Dealing with Delays
If you are told that you don’t have cancer when you do, the situation can worsen whilst treatment isn’t occurring. Many people have even died after a misdiagnosis has been made, when treatment could have otherwise been offered. Whether a delay will cause an adverse outcome depends on how long the delay is, what kind of cancer is at work and the nature of the tumour itself. For cancer misdiagnosis to be paid out, we need to prove that the delay made the situation worse. If a diagnosis made at the proper time would have caused things to progress more positively, you may have a strong case for a cancer misdiagnosis claim.
