Client stories - Cancer misdiagnosis and mistreatment:

Cancer treatment has developed significantly in recent years and it is now possible to effectively prevent, or treat some types of cancer. Early detection is crucial to improving a patient’s quality of life, as well as their survival chances and life expectancy. Here are the details of two of our clients we supported through making a cancer misdiagnosis and mistreatment claim on behalf of their deceased spouses. 

Mrs S (on behalf of the Estate of Mr S (deceased) - - NHS 

Our client received £200,000 compensation after her husband passed away from bowel cancer. It was accepted by the hospital that there was an unacceptable delay in diagnosis and that his death could have been avoided with earlier diagnosis and treatment.

GF - v - NHS Trust 

Our client received £100,000 after his wife passed away following a diagnosis of kidney cancer. It was argued that there was a one year delay in diagnosis, which led to the cancer becoming incurable and her passing away. Had the cancer been diagnosed earlier, it could have been treated with surgery. Damages were awarded for her pain and suffering whilst she was alive and to her husband for the loss of his wife.
