Cancer Negligence

Finding out that you have cancer is a traumatic experience, so a delay in diagnosis or treatment could add to your turmoil by prolonging your pain and suffering.

If you, or a loved one, have suffered as a result of misdiagnosis or delayed treatment of your cancer, Ramsdens Solicitors is here for you. Our solicitors can help you carry out an investigation into the treatment received at hospital, and can provide legal advice and support if you decide to make a claim for medical negligence.


Over 300,000 people a year are diagnosed with cancer in the UK, and more than one in three people are expected to suffer with it at some point in their life. Being misdiagnosed for the illness is extremely traumatic, and a claim can be made if the hospital has done any of the following:

  • Delayed or failed to carry out biopsy
  • Failed to investigate reported symptoms
  • Failed to refer patient to a specialist for diagnosis
  • Misread or misinterpreted test results
  • Not provided a timely response to test results

We have also dealt with cases that involve patients who have been diagnosed with, and treated for cancer when they never had the condition in the first place.


Our lawyers have extensive experience with this type of claim, so you can rest assured that you have a successful and caring team by your side. We have worked on cases involving many types of cancer, including:

  • Bladder
  • Bone
  • Bowel
  • Breast
  • Cervical
  • Colon
  • Oral
  • Ovarian
  • Skin
  • Testicular

We will help you find compensation that can help ensure you and your family are adequately covered for the pain and suffering caused.
