Cancer misdiagnosis compensation amounts can vary significantly, as they are affected by the specific circumstances of each situation. The compensation you could receive hinges on the delay you have suffered, the effect the delay has had (or could have) on your life, and the type of negligence you experienced, so it’s difficult to provide an estimate.
Cancer misdiagnosis compensation generally comprises two different categories: general damages and special damages.
At Switalskis, we understand how much compensation can help at a difficult time. When you call us, we'll listen to your story and learn about your situation. In this way, we'll be able to offer a realistic estimate of the amount of compensation you could be owed.
Your eligibility to claim depends on the individual circumstances you experienced. You must be able to prove that a medical professional owed you a duty of care; that they missed clear signs of cancer or failed to act; and that your condition got worse as a result.
Generally, if a medical professional made any of the following mistakes, you may be eligible to make a cancer misdiagnosis claim:
