How do I make a claim
Bringing a medical negligence claim is complex and demanding and cancer claims are no exception. The first thing to do is to contact a law firm which specialises in these sort of cases.
At such a difficult time in your life, it is important to have experienced and expert professionals fighting your corner. Access Legal’s medical negligence team has handled many cancer cases relating to the misdiagnosis, mistreatment or delayed cancer diagnosis, particularly breast cancer.
Our solicitors are among the most respected and experienced in the UK with good relationships with and access to leading medical experts, whose evidence will be absolutely crucial to the success of your claim. They will also be able to advise you about what help and support may be available.
National charities such as Macmillan Cancer Support can also help with information, grants and more practical assistance and a comprehensive list of support organisations for different types of cancer is given on the website of OSL, a manufacturer of radiology equipment used in the NHS.
The Action against Medical Accidents (AvMA) website has a useful tool that will allow you to search for solicitors checked and accredited by this respected independent national charity.
