There have been major improvements made over the past 20 years in the treatment of all forms of cancer. This has resulted in an increase in the survival and recovery rate.
The majority of medical negligence cases for oncology and cancer claims are for a delayed diagnosis of the cancer resulting in delayed treatment which can result in a much poorer prognosis for recovery or indeed survival. Delays in diagnosis can result from many different failures including but not limited to, failure to carry out proper blood tests, scans or x-rays or indeed read same in a competent manner.
Tiernan & Company Solicitors have successfully dealt with many oncology and cancer claims and would be happy to discuss any issues you may have.
