Starting your cancer claim

The key to successful cancer treatment is often in catching the disease early. It can be hard to spot, but there are various signs and symptoms which doctors should investigate quickly. If your condition is misdiagnosed, or you suffer a delayed diagnosis, the consequences can be devastating.

Medical mistakes can have life-changing consequences. . If you feel your treatment was below standard, our medical negligence specialists can help you move forward.

How we can help you

You’ll want to talk to someone who has the experience and knowledge to help you find out what has gone wrong and what you can do about it.

We have a strong track-record of helping cancer patients who have not received the right care.  We've helped our clients get answers about what went wrong as well as financial compensation. This means we completely understand what you and your family are going through and we know what it takes to help you through this difficult time.  

Clear, practical advice

When you come to us for help, we’ll listen carefully to your story; what’s happened to you and we will ask you what outcome you might want. Then we’ll use our knowledge and experience to look closely at the details of your case and give you clear, honest and realistic advice. We’ll explain your options in plain language and recommend a way forward.

We’ll find out what went wrong

We understand that you’ll probably want to know why things went wrong, and you’ll want to make sure it doesn’t happen to anybody else.   We can help you do that. 

Financial compensation

You may feel very worried about the future for yourself and your family. You could be entitled to financial compensation which can help to take the pressure off at a very stressful time.

Not getting the right cancer treatment can be devastating both physically and emotionally. You may have lasting complications, require ongoing treatment or need additional surgery in the future. 

We understand that every claim is different, so we take the time to understand how your treatment has affected you, your family and your income; what your future needs are, whether treatment, care, specialist equipment and so on; and how much it will cost.

We will help you get the best possible financial settlement for your needs.

With you every step of the way

You might already have tried to talk to doctors about your condition but sometimes it can feel like you’re on your own. With Tees by your side, you are not.  We understand what you're going through, and we're here to give you a voice.  Our practical, specialist advice can help you move forward.

We know this is a hard time for you and your family, so we’ll do everything we can to make it easier.

We've handled many cancer claims and so, our lawyers really do have the practical experience to support you. We're persistent, and we'll fight to get answers for you. 

Whether you’re looking to secure financial compensation or you just want to understand what happened, you can be confident that we’ll be with you all the way.

We realise that you might still be having treatment, so we'll handle your claim sensitively, with sympathy and understanding. We’ll also work quickly and efficiently so that you can have some peace of mind about a more secure future. Everything we do is geared towards getting you the best possible result.  We’ll explain things in plain English and we’ll always keep you informed of what’s going on.

If you need further treatment, we'll help you get it, and ensure that your compensation covers the cost.

Don’t worry about costs

We will not charge you to assess your case – this will be free. 

After that, there are many ways you can pursue the case without you having to pay the costs as the case proceeds, e.g. Insurance, a No Win, No Fee Agreement.  We will discuss the options with you once we have completed the free initial assessment but if you want to know more now, please get in touch.
