In the majority of cases, if a lump is discovered, you’ll be referred, diagnosed and treated without delay. But occasionally preventable mistakes are made. Whether it’s a misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis or the cancer is missed altogether – we are here to help. 

Types of breast cancer claim

There are a few types of claim that we see when it comes to breast cancer compensation:

  • Delayed diagnosis
  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose
  • Surgical negligence during tests, surgery or treatment – such as failure to remove enough cancerous tissue or cells during surgery

If you feel you’ve had treatment that was below the standard you would expect from a GP, the NHS or private healthcare, you may have a claim for medical negligence.

How can First4Lawyers help?

Failure to follow NICE guidelines can indicate a breach of duty on the part of the medical professional, as can failing to provide standards of care.

Our medical negligence solicitors are very experienced when it comes to building cases for breast cancer compensation. They can deal with the complexities of clinical negligence law on your behalf, so you can concentrate on getting treatment and recuperating.

Our solicitors work hard to put together a case to help you achieve maximum compensation. We also offer a No Win No Fee service in England and Wales.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Where we offer No Win No Fee services typically customers pay 25% of the amount recovered by our solicitors, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be less than this but it will never be more. Success fees are common practice and they were introduced when the law changed in April 2013.

First4Lawyers are an award winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

How much compensation will I receive for a breast cancer claim?

This will depend on how any negligent behaviour has impacted your treatment and recovery from the disease. For an idea of what you might be entitled to, visit our Compensation Calculator. Or just get in touch with our understanding and compassionate claims advisors, who will talk you through your options.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

There are time restrictions to making a claim – you usually have three years from the date of the negligence, or date of discovery of the negligence. The rules for children and those of limited mental capacity are different. Our trained legal advisors will be able to give you exact details, based on your individual circumstances.

I think I have a claim, what do I do next?
