Elaine Motion recovers in excess of £1m in damages for cases for late diagnoses of breast cancer

Elaine Motion has successfully settled three medical negligence cases in the past few months relating to the late diagnoses of breast cancer, recovering in excess of £1M in damages.
In all 3 cases, Elaine obtained admissions of liability by the health authorities in their failure to diagnose breast cancer early.  As a consequence, in each case, but at a different scale, the issue of life expectancy was affected as well as the extra or different type of treatment that was required due to that late diagnosis.
This required the instruction of a number of specific experts on complex issues. Given Elaine’s experience in this area, we were able to push forward to gain the acceptance of responsibility for the late diagnosis and thereafter concentrate on the issue of the value of the claim for each of our clients.
