Chemotherapy Claims

We've got your chemotherapy claim covered

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is life-changing, so if you’ve then experienced medical negligence on top of your diagnosis, this can be extremely difficult to deal with.

Having supported hundreds of people like you, who have been let down by a health professional, we understand how you feel, and will help you get the resolution you and your loved ones deserve.

Types of chemotherapy negligence claim:

  • A failure in diagnosis which leads to patients receiving chemotherapy unnecessarily
  • Where a patient is given the wrong chemotherapy drug, or where there is a failure in discussing the risks associated with a particular chemotherapy drug, leading to complications
  • A failure in the administration of chemotherapy treatment, or a failure in diagnosing or treating an injury in relation to chemotherapy, e.g., an extravasation injury

What is the impact of chemotherapy negligence?

When it comes to cancer, receiving timely and effective treatment is crucial, and if mistakes have been made during treatment, this can have a significant effect on the outcome of your condition.

For example, if chemotherapy is given unnecessarily, this could delay the correct treatment, causing significant pain and suffering. We helped one man who received three unnecessary chemotherapy treatments.
