It is traumatic enough to find out that you have cancer. But to discover that the condition has been missed and could have been diagnosed earlier resulting in a much better outcome is devastating news. Even more so if by the time diagnosis is finally made a localised tumour has become more widespread.
The highly progressive nature of some cancers means that early diagnosis is essential. Whilst in some situations even a short delay will be significant, doctors and hospitals often argue that although there may have been negligence it has not made any difference.
Our dedicated team of specialist clinical negligence experts will deal with your claim professionally but sympathetically. We offer a friendly personalised service from highly experienced clinical negligence lawyers.

Gerard qualified with a large regional firm in 1991. Since 1995 he has specialised exclusively on claimant personal injury work. More recently he has focused on complex higher value clinical negligence and personal injury claims.
His greatest success has been winning the high profile case of Delaney-v-The Secretary of State for Transport where after almost 9 years of litigation involving two Court of Appeal hearings and an application to the Supreme Court he was finally able to establish that the Motor Insurers’ Bureau Agreement was incompatible with EEC law. As a direct result of the decision in this case the agreement has had to be amended to the benefit of many future victims of uninsured drivers.
Gerard is a member of the Law Society’s Personal Injury Panel and he appears in the latest Legal 500 rankings in the fields of personal injury and clinical negligence.
