Delayed or Misdiagnosis of Cancer

Any diagnosis of cancer is devastating news to a patient. Although many cancers are now treatable, this largely depends on early detection and how soon treatment begins. However, if there are delays in diagnosing cancer, it may be too late for the patient to undergo any effective treatment. If you or someone close has been given a delayed or misdiagnosis of any type of cancer, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

SC Law has a panel of specialist medical and other experts to prepare the reports needed to support claims where there has been a delayed or misdiagnosis of cancer or another condition. 

Our clinical negligence lawyers at SC Law understand the human cost of such medical malpractice and that pursuing a claim at an already stressful time is another problem to cope with. We will provide practical, attentive and sympathetic advice so you feel reassured that your claim is being handled by an expert. We have some of the best London lawyers who will put your needs first and work closely with you to make the process simple and easy to understand, particularly in highly sensitive situations where the cancer is terminal. At SC Law, our medical negligence lawyers provide a personalised service that is tailor-made to each individual client's case. Shirley Giani is the Head of Clinical Negligence at SC Law and has extensive experience in handling cases of a delayed or misdiagnosis of cancer.

Action We Will Take

Our medical negligence lawyers understand that if you have suffered from a delayed or misdiagnosis you will be going through an emotional and stressful time. You may be experiencing feelings of anger, fear and sadness. You may be worried about your future care, your financial security or grieving the loss of a loved one and need reassurance that your claim is being handled by an expert.

At SC Law, our lawyers will help secure the maximum compensation and we regularly negotiate awards that exceed our clients’ expectations.
