Misdiagnosis of Oesophageal cancer
Oesophageal cancer, also known as cancer of the windpipe or gullet, must be correctly managed from the moment you seek medical help, as if allowed to develop, it can become serious. Listed below are some of the main problems we deal with at Asons:
- Delay or failure to refer a patient to a specialist
- Failure to arrange further testing when symptoms of cancer were presented
- Failure to schedule a biopsy or further investigation, after abnormalities noted
- Failure to act appropriately upon biopsy results, or those of other tests.
- Failure to organise appropriate treatments.
Can I Make An Occupational Asthma Compensation Claim?
If you are unlucky enough to suffer from a medical professional’s errors, whether diagnosing or treating your cancer of the gullet, you may be able to claim for compensation. To successfully win a medical claim you will need to be able to prove that a mistaken diagnosis or treatment caused a worsening of your symptoms. At Asons, we have a team of expert medical solicitors who can make the process easier, building a claim which is hard to defend against. You must be quick, though. There is often a three-year time limit in which you can make a compensation claim after you have been harmed. However, there are exceptions.

Why should I make a compensation claim?
Many people tend to feel guilty about claiming for compensation, telling themselves that it would be unfair to claim against NHS workers who have made an error. While it is true that all humans make mistakes, doctors and nurses do have a duty of care to you to ensure you receive the correct treatment. And when they fail in that duty, particularly in the case of cancers, the results can be devastating. Cancer misdiagnosis may leave you permanently distressed or disabled, or may result in the loss of a loved one. But compensation is a legal way to help you overcome challenges which weren’t your fault. You should never feel guilty about making a claim: it is never a personal attack, but targeted at the NHS Litigation Authority.
