What is skin cancer?

There are two main types of skin cancer – both are treatable if detected early:

When can you make a skin cancer claim?

If you have experienced sub-standard treatment or bad medical advice, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence claim. This can arise if, for example:

  • You weren’t referred for tests soon enough
  • Test results are incorrect
  • Test results are interpreted incorrectly
  • Failure to order biopsies
  • Misdiagnosis – you’ve been told you have another condition

More about making a claim

How can First4Lawyers help?

Our expert solicitors deal with all kinds of cancer claim. They know how to take complex facts and build them into a case that will get you maximum compensation. No Win No Fee is available for claims in England and Wales.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Where we offer No Win No Fee services typically customers pay 25% of the amount recovered by our solicitors, although this will be subject to your individual circumstances and the actual fee may be less than this but it will never be more. Success fees are common practice and they were introduced when the law changed in April 2013.

First4Lawyers are an award winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

Our claims advisors are friendly, approachable and ready to listen to your case, before advising you of your possible next steps.

How much compensation will I receive?

That very much depends on your individual case, what happened and the effect it’s likely to have on your life. A free chat with our claims advisors will give us a clearer picture of your circumstances.

Is there a time limit for making a claim?

Yes – usually three years from the ‘date of knowledge’. That is the date you became aware of the negligent behaviour. But there are exceptions to the rule so if you're not sure whether you have a claim, our understanding and compassionate advisors will help you work it out.

I think I have a claim, what do I do next?

Just give us a call, request a call back or start your claim online and we'll be in touch.
