Proper care and a correct diagnosis are vital; any improper practice that led to suffering would constitute as medical negligence.
The Specter Partnership has seen a number of cases where individuals have suffered from the following failures:
- Cancer Misdiagnosis
- Delayed diagnosis of cancer
- Wrongful treatment of cancer
The four most common cancers are breast cancer, lung cancer, large bowel cancer and prostate cancer. These types of cancers account for over half of all new cases with over 75% of cancer occurring in people over the age of 60 and less than 1% of all cases occurring in children.
A failure to diagnose cancer can lead to unnecessary suffering and the need for further treatment which may have been avoided if the cancer diagnosis had been made at an earlier stage.
Delays and misdiagnosis of cancer can occur in circumstances involving your GP or other healthcare professionals, for example, test results can be misinterpreted resulting in a misdiagnosis.
Further delays in a referral to a cancer specialist can lead to delays in treatment which give rise to a claim for medical negligence.
If you have, or know of someone who has, experienced these types of medical errors such as a delayed cancer diagnosis, and suffered as a result, The Specter Partnership can help you to seek financial recovery for your injuries, as well as any financial strain that you have incurred.
Our experienced team will guide you through the complex legal process, ensuring that you receive the best possible outcome to your compensation claim.
