Am I Eligible to Claim For Breast Cancer Misdiagnosis?

Breast cancer misdiagnosis, late diagnosis, or failure to diagnose can happen for lots of reasons.

To make a claim, we need to show that medical negligence played a part. This could include;

  • Your doctor failing to recognise the symptoms
  • Failing to refer you for a mammogram
  • Misinterpreting the results of a mammogram, scans, or x-ray
  • The failure to perform a biopsy
  • Faulty or defective testing devices
  • Treatment fell below acceptable standards
  • Errors in admin and failing to provide follow up appointments
  • You doctor wrongly giving you the all-clear
  • Being told you had breast cancer and receiving treatment for it when you didn’t

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For Breast Cancer Misdiagnosis?

All breast cancer claims are different. The amount of compensation you’ll be able to claim will depend on your particular case.

When assessing how much your claim is worth, we’ll take into account;

  • How long your breast cancer went undiagnosed
  • The amount of pain and suffering you’ve gone through
  • Whether your misdiagnosis contributed to the loss of your breast(s)
  • Loss of earnings
  • Out of pocket expenses
  • Any specialist or ongoing care you might need
  • If a loved one died as a result

How Long Do Breast Cancer Claims Take?

The length of time it takes to settle your claim depends on the severity and complexity of your case.

To claim the maximum amount of compensation, we need to fully understand the consequences of your misdiagnosis. If we settle too early, it could result in your claim being undervalued.

However, if the other side accepts liability early on, we could claim early compensation payments. These payments help to cover the cost of immediate treatment and/or medical care.

Can I Claim On a No Win, No Fee Basis?

We handle most breast cancer misdiagnosis claims on a no win, no fee basis.

This means you don’t have to pay anything up front to start your claim and you won’t have anything to pay if your claim is unsuccessful.

If you claim is successful, the other side will pay most of the legal fees. Any other fees will be deducted from your compensation settlement.

We’ll always keep you up to date of any and all fees you can expect to pay and how much compensation you will receive.

    When claiming on behalf of a loved one, you have three years from:

    There are two exceptions to this three-year time limit;

    1. Claiming on behalf of a child – you have until the child reaches the age of 18. After that, they have three years, until they’re 21 to bring a claim themselves.
