Whilst it may never have been possible to find a cure for a terminal disease, you may feel that your loved one’s life expectancy or quality of life could have been improved if they had received more appropriate medical care.

For example, if a healthcare professional does not exercise reasonable care and fails to diagnose a serious condition like a brain aneurysm, despite the warning signs, then any subsequent deterioration in their condition could result in a claim for clinical negligence.

At Express Solicitors, our specialist clinical negligence lawyers have the experience to handle a range of terminal illness claims, with the professionalism and sensitivity they require.

We can talk through the details of your case, advise you whether a claim is likely to be successful and help you prepare for the next step.

Our professional clinical lawyers advise on a wide range of terminal illness claims, including misdiagnosis or inappropriate treatment of:

  • Inoperable cancer
  • Renal disease
  • Heart conditions
  • Pulmonary disorders
  • Vascular conditions (e.g. aneurism)
  • Pseudomyxoma peritonei

If you have lost a loved one following a terminal illness and feel that their treatment suffered as a result of clinical negligence you may be able to claim compensation.

Our specialist clinical negligence lawyers can also advise you about making a formal complaint under the NHS Complaints Procedure.

Deciding whether to bring a clinical negligence case in these circumstances can be a difficult decision.

If you think you might want to bring a claim at some point in the future, it is vital you seek professional legal advice as soon as possible.

This means that if and when you decide to bring a claim in the future you will be able to do so within the legal time limits.
