Negligence can happen when a medical professional provides care that has fallen below what is described as a ‘reasonable’ standard of care. If the care provided has fallen below the reasonable standard then a claim can be made for the injuries that have been directly caused, worsened, or overlooked by the medical professional during your treatment. We can investigate what mistakes were made and how they could have been avoided.
If your cancer was misdiagnosed or diagnosed later than it should have been then you may have grounds to pursue a Clinical Negligence claim.
