Unnecessary cancer treatment such as chemotherapy adn radiotherapy may also create serious health complications for the patient, which may amount to cancer misdiagnosis compensation claims.

Why Should I Make A Claim?

Making a cancer compensation claim following a delayed or misdiagnosed cancer treatment is a significant step for various reasons. If you or a loved one is suffering due to misdiagnosis or mistreatment, you should claim compensation and get back what you deserve. Your cancer negligence calim can provide you with the finances that can cover your medical expenses for future diagnosis and treatments. If you lost time off work due to the diagnosis or treatment which was not carried out properly then you should claim to regain any income lost and compensate for your time, which could have been spent in a much more productive manner.

Moreover, executing a claim will also mean that medical services will review their process of cancer treatments and possibly improve it in the future which can significantly decrease the amount of cancer negligence cases in the future, helping to create a much more efficient healthcare system. On a larger scale, this means that, potentially, a lot of lives can be saved.

When Can I Make A Claim?

In most cases, you have 3 years from the date of the incident or the date you first became aware to make a claim. For certain cases, this time period is extended. It is, however, recommended to make the claim as soon as possible whilst the incident is still fresh in your mind so that it is easier for you to gather sufficient and significant evidence to prove that you should recieve compensation.

How Much Compensation Will I Recieve?

The amount of cacner negligence compensation awarded in this type of cases depends on a number of different aspects. These aspects depend on the severity of the injury caused, combined with any financial losses, the effect the damage has had on your life, outside work, and whether medical injuy was caused due to negligence will require further treatment and care in the future.
