Cancer Negligence Negligence Specialists
As with any illness or disease, a delayed diagnosis by medical experts can have catastrophic results. Cancer can be a particularly worrisome disease to deal with if it is not detected and treated early. As it develops, it progresses through a variety of stages, each one making the disease more advanced and difficult to treat.
If the illness is detected early on, the chances of treatment being successful are much higher. Once a patient approaches the later stages, the condition is far more serious and more difficult to treat. This is why it is essential that your Doctor detects cancer at the soonest possible time — stage one, if possible.
If you find yourself diagnosed in the later stages of cancer, knowing that you have been seeing your Doctor or consultant for some considerable time, the question needs to be asked as to why your diagnosis was delayed. It may well be the case that you Doctors have sent you for tests, but there was no clear diagnosis made when it should have been. This is where we can step in to help. By representing you, we will liaise with all medical staff to get a full history of your case before we begin a legal claims process.
