As one of the most common forms of the disease, almost all of us are likely to be closely acquainted with someone who has been subject to the devastating life effects associated with breast cancer.
Years of increase in breast cancer rates has inevitably given way to a multitude of well-funded campaigns to raise awareness of the disease and its attached indicating symptoms. As a result, this has subsequently led to a marked shift in members of society, particularly women, becoming open in their discussion of their own personal checks for any warning signs of any cancerous lumps and bumps. Unfortunately misdiagnoses do occur despite the best effort from medical professionals. If you have been misdiagnosed our team of medical negligence solicitors can help you make a claim today.

Most of us – quite rightly – regularly checking for symptoms, there has consequently been an increase in self-referrals to medical professionals for an informed opinion whenever a potential sign of cancer appears. Better safe than sorry.
Since the chances of survival subsequent to a positive breast cancer diagnosis are increased significantly when the disease is identified and caught at the earliest stage possible, it is imperative that the professionals involved adhere to the strictest procedures and avoid potential errors.
However, this is not always the case. Symptoms associated with breast cancer can often be wrongly conflated with other, less serious conditions. This therefore raises the prospect of misdiagnoses and can ultimately result in those with breast cancer’s chances of survival unfortunately being placed into a state of jeopardy.
Our team of claim specialists are on hand throughout the working week to answer any questions or help you understand the claims process.
Medical professionals have a duty of care to ensure that they follow proper practice and not fail to notice blatant symptoms which indicate the presence of breast cancer. If this does happen to occur, their actions may have fallen short of the expected standards of their profession and so they could have acted negligently.
Not only can this happen with regard to diagnosing the problem at a sufficiently early stage but is also seen to occur with the subsequent treatments used to help remove or push the cancerous cells into remission. For instance, mistakes made during surgical operations which fall below the standard expected from a professional can lead to further exacerbating conditions.
Therefore, if a misdiagnosis or indeed medical failings further down the line, can be shown to have materialised as a result of negligent decision making then the law can offer an avenue of redress to allow those affected to recover compensation as a result of any loss sustained.
If you suffer, or have previously suffered from breast cancer and believe that you may have been negatively affected by a wrongful decision at the hands of medical professionals then it may be the case that you are able to prove their negligence against you.At Scot Accident Claims, our specialist team are able to utilise their encompassing expertise and help you decide what steps to take next if you have been affected by medical negligence.
