Oncology & Cancer Claims & Compensation
In the developed world as many as 1 in 3 people will develop some form of cancer in their lifetime and this disease remains one of the greatest causes of mortality.
Thankfully, dramatic improvements have been made over the past decade in the treatment of many forms of cancer which have resulted in a significant improvement to patient outcomes. Thus in many cases if the diagnosis is made early enough and the correct treatment given in a timely fashion, it can result in a complete cure or a significant prolongation of life expectancy.
If a diagnosis is delayed or the cancer was not diagnosed at all, it can have serious ramifications for the patient and in some cases, it may be deemed as medical negligence.
Understanding Oncology & Cancer-related Negligence
In many cases that have been successfully pursued by Augustus Cullen Law, the central allegation of negligence has involved an allegation of delay in a proper timely diagnosis of the cancer and thus timely treatment (either by way of chemotherapy, radiotherapy or surgery) has been delayed with the result that the prognosis for survival has been worsened or more radical invasive treatment has become necessary.
Often, the delay in proper diagnosis can result from:
- a failure to carry out, properly analyse and react to abnormal blood tests.
- failure to perform scans or X-rays, failure to properly read/interpret such scans or X-rays or failure to perform core biopsies.
- poorly performed surgery.
- medication or dosage errors occur so that the patient receives an excess or too little of a drug or radiation with adverse effects.
