Delayed or misdiagnosed lung cancer
Our specialist team are here to help you or your loved one get answers to why your lung cancer was missed, which may have led to removal of part of or all of your lung (lobectomy, pneumonectomy or resection), chemotherapy, radiotherapy or the death of a family member.
Early detection is key to a better outcome so doctors should be aware of common symptoms like a persistent cough, coughing up blood, being short of breath, an ache or pain in the chest or shoulder, loss of appetite and frequent chest infections.
You may be able to claim compensation if there was a:
- Failure by your GP to recognise the symptoms of lung cancer and refer you to a specialist;
- Failure by the hospital to perform the correct tests;
- Failure by the hospital to diagnose and treat despite sign, symptoms and test results;
- Failure by the hospital to properly report scans or test results;
- Failure by the hospital to provide the right treatment.
Why bring a claim?
We want to help you and your family get the answers that you need to understand what went wrong with your medical treatment. We can help you to obtain compensation for treatment, care and loss of earnings, as well as any other losses caused as a result of your injuries or the death of a loved one. We can help ensure that this does not happen to someone else or another family.
How we can help?
We are committed to getting the best possible outcome for you or your loved one when you have been let down by your doctors.
No amount of money is ever going to change the negligent medical treatment that you have received or bring back a loved one that has passed away due to substandard care, but we can help ease some of the financial burdens by obtaining compensation, access cancer specialists for treatment advice, investigate the claim to help you understand what happened, hold individual clinicians to account and raise standards so that no one else has to go through what has happened to you.
