Start your cancer compensation claim today


Leading medical negligence solicitors for cancer compensation

Dealing with cancer is difficult under any circumstances but if there has been a delay in your diagnosis or treatment, the consequences can be devastating.

If you or a loved one have suffered because treatment was not started promptly, or your doctor misdiagnosed the cancer, our experienced solicitors can help you make a cancer compensation claim.

We know this can feel daunting but we’re here to guide you through the process, usually on a no-win, no-fee basis.

Do you have a cancer claim?



When can you make a cancer claim?

Thankfully many cancers are now treatable but early detection is important for a successful outcome. It can therefore be incredibly worrying if you have to wait for a diagnosis.

You have the right to proper care to give you the best chance of a full recovery. Any delay can mean treatment is not begun soon enough, which can make recovery more complicated or potentially result in the cancer becoming incurable. 

Many cancer compensation claims relate to delays in diagnosis or treatment. These occur when:   

  • GPs do not arrange more investigations or referrals
  • Scans or biopsies aren't reported properly
  • Patients are not examined correctly and problems are not identified

You can also make a claim if you feel you have lost a family member because of a delay in their diagnosis.

  • Guide you through the process, with clear and honest advice - We explain everything carefully and answer your questions so you know what to expect at each stage, keeping you fully informed throughout.

How can cancer compensation help you and your family?

Following a cancer diagnosis, you may be worried about what the future holds, even more so if you feel the cancer could have been picked up sooner.

Cancer compensation is calculated to reflect the pain and suffering experienced because of additional treatment, as well as your past and future care costs and lost earnings. Your financial settlement can give you more options, as well as providing for your family.

If the prognosis is terminal because of a delay in diagnosis, compensation can cover medical expenses, funeral costs and the value of support that would have been available to you/your partner and your children in the future, reducing financial pressure at a very difficult time.

Making a claim can also be about recognising the impact this has had on your life and providing some justice. It gives you a chance to ask questions about what happened and ensure that lessons have been learnt so others don’t go through the same experience.



"From the first phone call I have been supported throughout, with direct communication, clear knowledgeable advice and guidance that made the whole process seem less daunting.”
