The general time limit for filing a cancer negligence claim in the UK is three years. This period typically starts from the date of the incident of negligence or from the date you first became aware of it. This 'awareness' is often when a misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis is discovered. However, there are exceptions, especially in complex cases or where the harm was not immediately apparent. We recommend seeking legal advice and early consultation with us to assess the specific time limits relevant to your individual case, ensuring that your right to claim is preserved.
Determining the validity of a cancer negligence claim involves a careful evaluation of whether the standard of care provided fell below what is reasonably expected and resulted in harm. Our skilled cancer medical negligence solicitors can review your medical records, consult with independent medical professionals, and assess the impact on your health to ascertain the strength of your claim.
The majority of negligence and cancer misdiagnosis claims are resolved without going to trial. However, if a settlement cannot be reached through negotiation, court proceedings may be necessary. In such cases, we will make sure you are fully prepared and represented by our team. We strive to make this process as smooth as possible, alleviating as much of the stress as possible that is often associated with court appearances.

Our solicitors have a wealth of experience and expertise in handling these complex cases, ensuring that each client's unique circumstances are understood and effectively represented. We work diligently to secure the recognition and compensation our clients deserve, regardless of the specific type of cancer involved in the claim.
