Cancer Compensation Claims
Have you suffered as a result of a delay in your Cancer Diagnosis or Treatment ?
Many cancers are treatable especially if diagnosed early. Unfortunately, the truth is that on occasion accurate and early diagnosis is not made, this could result in the cancer becoming incurable. We all rely on the medical experts to diagnosis cancer as early as possible but sometimes this is not the case and as well as affecting the person with cancer it can have an impact on their entire family.
At Hill & Abbott we understand that discussing your illness can be a very emotional thing, especially when discussing whether an earlier diagnosis could have resulted in treatment earlier, potential recovery and to some extent an improved quality of life. Our specialist, Richard Penn has represented clients who were mis-diagnosed of where the diagnosis was delayed.
Cancer Compensation Claim
This is one of the most difficult times for you and your family and it is important that you get the right legal advice from an experienced solicitor. At Hill & Abbott we have helped many clients obtain the compensation they are entitled to following mis-diagnosis or delayed diagnosis.
Richard Penn will discuss the process with you, including advice on drafting the complaint with the NHS body so that they can begin their investigation. If, following the outcome of the NHS investigation, you are not happy with the response we can advise you of the next steps in preparing for an independent enquiry or assist you with preparing a letter to the Health Service Ombudsman. Occasionally it may be necessary to make a complaint to the General Medical Council (GMC). The GMC disciplines doctors and has the ability to prevent them from working in future.
Our solicitors are able to make home or hospital visits where clients are unable to attend the office. We offer early morning, late evening and Saturday morning appointments
