Am I Eligible to Claim For the Misdiagnosis of Ovarian Cancer?

Ovarian cancer can be difficult to diagnose. In the early stages it can be symptomless. When symptoms do present themselves, they can be mistaken for other conditions.

If a medical professional failed to do what they should have, you could have a claim.


  • Your GP failed to recognise the symptoms
  • A doctor didn’t refer you to a specialist for further investigation
  • A medical professional misinterpreted the results of a biopsy, scans, or x-ray
  • Faulty machinery or defective equipment caused misdiagnosis
  • Administration errors and the failure to provide follow-up appointments
  • You were given the ‘all clear’ by mistake
  • Your treatment fell below acceptable standards

How Much Compensation Can I Claim For Ovarian Cancer Misdiagnosis?

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

When assessing how much your claim is worth, we’ll consider;

  • The length of time your ovarian cancer went undiagnosed
  • How much pain you have suffered
  • Current and future loss of earnings
  • Any expenses you have incurred as a result
  • The cost of ongoing medical care and support
  • If you have lost a loved one

How Long Do Ovarian Cancer Claims Take?

Again, this depends.

The more severe and complex the case, the longer it will take.

For us to claim the maximum amount of compensation, we need a full understanding of how your misdiagnosis has affected your life. This takes time. If we settle too early, it might mean that you’re awarded less than you’re entitled it.

If we can get the other side to accept responsibility early on, we could secure ‘interim’ compensation payments. These will help to cover the cost of immediate treatment as well as ease any financial pressure you may be under.

How Long Do I Have to Make a Claim?

All cancer misdiagnosis claims are subject to a three-year time limit. This starts from the date you became aware that mistakes were made.

If you’re claiming on behalf of a loved one who has passed away, you have three years from;

  • The date of their death, or
  • The date you became aware that negligence contributed towards their death

Whichever is later.

There are two exceptions to his three-year limit:

  1. Children under 18 years: You can claim on behalf of a child at any point until their 18th birthday. Once they turn 18, they have three years to make a claim for themselves.
  2. Mental capacity: There are no time limits for claiming on behalf of someone who lacks mental the mental capacity to make a claim for themselves.

Regardless of time limits, if you think you have a claim, it’s important to contact us as soon as possible.

The sooner you contact us, the easier it will be to gather the evidence we need to build a successful case.

We may also be able to secure early compensation payments and help you access immediate treatment.

Can I Make a No Win, No Fee Claim?


The majority of ovarian cancer misdiagnosis claims we handle are on a no win, no fee basis.

This means you are never at any financial risk. You won’t have anything to pay in advance and you won’t have anything to pay if your claim isn’t successful.

When a claim is successful, the other side pays most of the legal fees. After that, we’ll deduct any other costs from your settlement.

Rest assured, we will always keep you informed of any fees so there aren’t any nasty surprises.
