Bladder Cancer

Delayed or misdiagnosed bladder cancer can have a devastating effect on your life and your family. Our experienced bladder cancer lawyers can help get answers to what went wrong during your treatment and obtain compensation.

If bladder cancer is misdiagnosed or there is a delay in treatment, it can have life changing effects and lead to removal of the bladder (cystectomy), bladder reconstruction or stoma formation (urostomy), chemotherapy or radiotherapy. It can have an effect on your sex life and on your life expectancy. Sadly, it can also cause the death of a loved one.

Early diagnosis can prevent the cancer spreading and causing these devastating outcomes. Symptoms of bladder cancer that all doctors should be aware of are blood in the urine, increased frequency or urgency in passing urine, pain or burning sensation on passing urine, weight loss and pain in your back, tummy or bones. The types of claims that we often help with are:
  • Failures by GPs to refer to a specialist despite cancer signs and symptoms;
  • Failure by hospitals to perform the correct tests;
  • Failures by hospitals to diagnose and treat despite sign, symptoms and test results;
  • Failures by hospitals to properly report scans or test results;
  • Failure by hospital to provide correct treatment or perform surgery appropriately.

Why bring a claim?

The impact that the delayed or missed diagnosis of bladder cancer has had on you and your family is at the heart of everything that we do. We are here to listen to your concerns so we can fight your corner and get the answers that you need to understand what went wrong with your medical treatment. We can also help you to obtain compensation for treatment, care and loss of earnings, as well as any other losses caused as a result of your injuries.

How we can help?

No amount of money is ever going to change the negligent medical treatment that you have received or bring back a loved one that has passed away due to substandard care, but we can help ease some of the financial burdens by obtaining compensation, access cancer specialists for treatment advice, investigate the claim to help you understand what happened, hold individual clinicians to account and raise standards so that no one else has to go through what has happened to you.
