Bowel Cancer Claims

We've got your bowel cancer claim covered

 

Bowel cancer can be difficult to diagnose or detect in the early stages since symptoms usually appear in the later stages. However, when symptoms do occur, misdiagnosis and delays in treatment can have devastating impacts on those affected. If bowel cancer is diagnosed and treated quickly enough, the chances of recovery are more likely, however, when left untreated or treatment is significantly delayed due to medical mistakes, the cancer can become life-threatening. 

Generally, the NHS have a good reputation for their cancer treatment, however, unfortunately errors are sometimes made. Patients can suffer delays in cancer treatment with almost half of cancers being diagnosed at a late stage. If you have been affected by a misdiagnosis or delayed treatment of bowel cancer which has worsened your condition, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Our team of bowel cancer specialist solicitors have years of experience dealing with medical negligence bowel cancer claims and are ready to support you to ensure that you receive the treatment and compensation that you deserve.

BOWEL CANCER AND MEDICAL NEGLIGENCE 

 

Delays in treatment or poor-quality care can be distressing and can also impact the outcome of your condition. A misdiagnosis of bowel cancer is harmful as it may lead to you receiving the wrong treatment or your symptoms may even be dismissed and left untreated. Failure to provide treatment quickly and effectively can result in long-term issues such as bowel damage and, in some cases, can result in death. 

Treatment for bowel cancer will depend on the staging as well as other factors, such as any other health conditions you may have. If your cancer has been staged incorrectly, this could also result in the wrong type of treatment being given.

 

TYPES OF BOWEL CANCER NEGLIGENCE CLAIMS 

There are several reasons for a bowel cancer negligence claim to be brought forward. We have represented and supported bowel cancer patients and their families affected by negligent medical care. 

Some examples of the bowel cancer negligence claims that we have pursued include:

  • A misdiagnosis or a delay in the diagnosis of your bowel cancer
  • Failure to recognise bowel cancer symptoms
  • A failure to make a fast referral to a relevant specialist
  • Incorrect staging of your cancer leading to incorrect treatment 
  • Avoidable complications during treatment and care

 

 

HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE A BOWEL CANCER CLAIM?

 

In order to claim for bowel cancer negligence, you must be able to prove that negligent care was the direct cause that led to the worsening of your condition. If treatment was delayed, there would need to be a delay of several months to prove that this led to the cancer progressing to an advanced stage.

 

If you have experienced substandard medical care when it came to your bowel cancer diagnosis or treatment and this led to the advancement of your condition, you may have a claim for bowel cancer negligence.

Sarah's Story

"Now we have peace of mind"

My husband, Nick, went back and forth to the doctors for a long time and tried everything the doctor recommended. But his illness got worse, to the point that he was in agony.

In the end we got so desperate that we asked for a referral. The doctor was reluctant, so we had to consult a private hospital. That’s when we found out there was a tumour. It took years from the onset of his illness to finally start cancer treatment.

He used to be a man with a lot to live for, but in the end he was in so much pain that he withdrew from the family. He became angry that nobody had helped him sooner, and the legal team were able to give him the validation that he was desperately seeking. The NHS confirmed if they had done more, Nick would still be alive today.

You don’t have to go through this alone – take the first step now
