Claims for a failure to adequately treat lung cancer

For anybody who has been affected by cancer, you will understand how devastating it can be – with over 300,000 people in the UK alone being diagnosed with it each year. Lung cancer is one of the more severe forms the virus can take on, as it prevents oxygen getting around the circulatory system to important areas of the body and brain. Luckily however, thanks to the advances in modern science, there are steps that can be taken to cure the disease.

Unfortunately though, mistakes can be made by the surgeon whether it’s through carelessness or negligence – such is the difficulty of treating lung cancer – and this can have a detrimental effect on the body and leave you dealing with trauma.

Who can you make a claim against?

If you feel that you have been the victim of inadequate treatment for lung cancer, then you may be eligible to make a claim. This can be a very stressful and traumatising experience, but it is important to remember that you have been a victim and you deserve to be compensated as a result. There are a number of people who can be held responsible in this situation – whether it’s the operating surgeon or the GP who could have misdiagnosed your illness, in any case you have to be able to prove that they are guilty of any negligence before you go ahead with making a claim.

In which circumstances would failure to adequately treat lung cancer occur?

If you believe that you haven’t received the best treatment for lung cancer then there are a number of areas where you could consider claiming, these include:

·         Claims for a failure to perform adequate tests

·         Poor treatment
