Cancer is an uncontrollable growth of cells that targets a specific part of ones body. These cells go on to destroy other cells and tissues in the body and can spread quite significantly.
When cancer is suspected in a patient, a two week referral is made to the relevant Consultant for confirmation, further testing and a diagnosis. This is the usual process that is followed.
If however, the care provided to you is substandard, you may be able to claim for compensation. Our expert team has experience in dealing with the following cases:
- Failure to refer for further testing to eliminate the diagnosis of cancer
- Delay in reporting on X-rays;
- Failure to properly report on X-rays;
- Mistreatment of cancer;
- Delay in diagnosing cancer;
- Delay in commencing treatment;
- Misdiagnosis of cancer.
The compensation that may be obtained for the substandard care may be able to assist you with any loss of earnings that may arise, any additional care you may require as a result of the cancer, potential nursing care, and any future care you may require.
