The team at Pearson can help with your cancer claim
We have worked with many clients and their families over the years helping them to get compensation for missed cancer diagnosis, not recognising the symptoms of cancer or looking into family history, a treatment that comes too late, or mismanaged treatment. It is a highly specialised area of law and so it is always better to deal with specialised medical negligence solicitors who truly understand your case.
Our solicitors are members of the Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) solicitors’ panel and are trusted by clients from all over the country.

Act now for Cancer Compensation Claims
Time is of the essence in diagnosis and treatment of cancer. When the opportunity for curative treatment has been lost it is possible to recover damages arising for:
- avoidable pain suffering and lost amenity (including the psychological consequences)
- past and future losses (such as lost earnings/pension rights)
- care requirements
- treatment costs
- loss of dependency
Even in cases where (even with the best of care) curative treatment could not have been provided, the delay in diagnosis and treatment can sometimes give rise to claims for:
- damages for pain, suffering and loss of amenity
- treatment costs
- care costs
- loss of life expectation
Missed diagnosis and delayed diagnosis of Cancer
For many patients recovering from cancer is a distinct possibility, but that relies on an accurate speedy diagnosis. If cancer remains undetected it can progress and the prognosis is not always a good one. Delays in treatment and care have consequences on long term survival rates from cancer.
The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) provides evidence-based guidance for health professionals including recommendations on the symptoms and signs of cancer that warrant investigation, as well as quality standards and performance metrics.
Each condition identifies red flags for referral and when a client or their family contacts us all too often we see these symptoms have been missed or cancer misdiagnosed, in particular in gynaecology, prostate cancer, breast cancer, lung cancer, dermatology and skin cancer, bowel cancer, bone cancer, testicular cancer and brain tumours.
