When can you make a testicular cancer claim?

Making a claim can seem daunting. But if you suffered harm as a result of sub-standard medical care, you could be entitled to compensation and support.

According to Cancer Research UK, around nine in 10 men with testicular cancer survive for at least 10 years after their diagnosis. One of the main reasons for this is the development of advanced treatment, such as combination chemotherapy.

But in order for treatment to be effective, early diagnosis is vital. If your testicular cancer was misdiagnosed or your treatment was delayed, you could have grounds to make a testicular cancer claim.

Examples of testicular cancer negligence include:

  • Dismissal of key symptoms
  • Failure to carry out a full examination
  • Failure to perform a biopsy after orchidectomy (removal of the testicle)
  • Failure to refer to a specialist for further tests
  • Incorrect reading of test results

But this is not an exhaustive list. If your condition has worsened as a result of negligence, we could help you. Get in touch with our claims team for a free, no-obligation chat about your case.

How will I prove I have a testicular cancer claim?

Evidence is a crucial part of any successful claim. Your solicitor will need to prove that the medical care you received was sub-standard and caused your condition to deteriorate.

This isn’t always a straightforward process. But your solicitor will be on hand to gather key details and information to support your case. This could include:

  • Independent medical evidence
    Your solicitor may arrange for you to be seen by a medical expert who will assess whether the care you received was up to the standards expected of a medical professional. They may also be able to provide an outline of how your current condition will impact your life.
  • Medical records
    Solicitors often use medical records to prove the basics of where your treatment took place. But they may also use these notes as evidence of any avoidable treatment you’ve had to undergo as a result of a delayed or incorrect diagnosis.
  • Witness statements
    Witness statements could be taken from someone who attended your appointments with you, or from members of staff who were present for your diagnosis or treatment. These accounts are important as they can help to fill any gaps in your own memory.
  • Your own recollections
    Your solicitor will likely want to hear if there’s anything you can recall that raised concerns during your treatment. This will be much easier to remember if the negligence was recent. So we’d always recommend seeking legal advice as soon as you’re able to.

How can First4Lawyers help?

We work with expert medical negligence solicitors who are experienced in handling testicular cancer claims. They will gather evidence to strengthen your case and secure you the best outcome possible.

Your solicitor will make sure that any compensation you receive reflects the suffering you’ve endured – both physically and emotionally.

We know that suffering negligence can bring a tremendous amount of financial stress. You may have had to take time off work for your recovery, resulting in lost or reduced earnings. Making a claim for compensation could help you to recover this loss and provide additional financial security.

And you won’t need to worry about paying us anything upfront when making a claim. We work on a No Win No Fee basis, so you won’t have any legal fees to cover if your claim is unsuccessful.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Our No Win No Fee solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim in the form of a percentage of your damages. This could be up to 25% but it won't be more than that, except in cases of road traffic accidents and housing disrepair. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 35% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident and housing disrepair claims.

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

Will my claim take money away from the NHS?

It’s not uncommon for people to have concerns about how their claim could affect the NHS. But you shouldn’t let this put you off taking legal action.

The NHS is prepared for claims like yours and money is set aside each year to cover the cost of compensation payouts. Rather than coming directly from NHS services, your compensation will be paid through NHS Resolution, which acts similarly to an insurance company for the health service.

So whether you experienced negligence from a GP surgery or hospital, you shouldn’t worry about having a negative impact by making a claim. It’s only right that you pursue justice and support for what you’ve been through.

Testicular Cancer Claims FAQs

Is there a limit on when I can make a testicular cancer claim?

In most cases, there is a three-year time limit on these types of claims. This could be three years from the date the negligence took place or from when you first became aware of it.

Sadly, there will be instances where loved ones are making a claim on behalf of someone who has passed away. If this applies to you, you’ll usually have three years from the date of death to take legal action.

Your solicitor will support you throughout the process of making a claim and make sure that all the relevant deadlines are met. So there will be one less thing for you to worry about.

How much compensation will I receive for a testicular cancer claim?

There is no straightforward answer to this question as every case is unique. But any compensation you receive will be split into what’s known as general and special damages.

General damages will take into account the pain and suffering you’ve endured as a result of negligence. This could include both the physical and psychological impact of the sub-standard care you were given.

Special damages are slightly different as they will consider the financial effect of the negligence you suffered. This could range from lost earnings to the cost of transport to and from medical appointments.

Your solicitor will be able to give a more accurate prediction of how much your claim could be worth after gathering the details of your case. But for a rough estimate, try our free compensation calculator.
