The statistics

Statistics suggest that nearly 50,000 people are diagnosed each year and it can affect both men and women, as well as their families who have to deal with the consequences of their family member facing a life threatening disease. In recent years treatment for breast cancer has improved and survival rates continue to rise. Early diagnosis and treatment is key to fighting this disease.

There are four main types of breast cancer:

  • Invasive
  • Non-invasive
  • Lobular
  • Ductal

What can I claim for?

Depending on the type of cancer will depend upon the treatment prognosis. Negligence claims are often due to:

  • Delayed or incorrect diagnosis
  • Failure to offer the patient a biopsy or refer them to a specialist
  • Incorrect analysis or interpretation of the test results
  • Failure to refer or carry out procedures (CT/MRI scans)

What if someone has passed due to negligence?

If someone has passed due to negligence involving their cancer, the family are entitled to seek compensation. Claims must be made within 3 years of either the person passing or within 3 years of knowing that negligence has occurred.
