Alton Medical Negligence Solicitors

Do you live in or around Alton? Have you suffered an injury as a result of some kind of mistake or negligence from one of the medical staff at Alton Community Hospital, local GP surgeries or other hospitals or clinics in the area? Are you looking for a specialist medical negligence solicitor to help you claim medical compensation?

Our team can help.

We are absolutely convinced that to stand the best chance of a successful medical negligence compensation claim, you need a specialist solicitor. Unfortunately at the time of writing this blog, none of the solicitors in Alton are genuine medical specialists. But our team based in Andover and Salisbury are able to help you – as you’ll see below, there are genuine specialists and are happy to make a home or hospital visit if your medical condition makes it impossible to travel.


Here at Bonallack and Bishop, we certainly think so, but don’t just take our word for it.
Here is a quote directly from the AvMA website. Action against Medical Accidents is the independent campaigning patient justice charity, and they have probably done more than anyone else to support the victims of medical negligence over the last 20 years. What do they say?

“Beware of solicitors who imply that they are specialists without accreditation by AvMA or the Law Society, and do not be confused by the term ‘personal injury’ lawyer. Clinical Negligence is a highly specialist field of its own.”

[Please note that they refer to clinical negligence – which is simply another term for medical negligence]

Their advice is clear as crystal – they reckon that the only way of identifying the genuine specialist you need is to make sure that your chosen solicitor is an accredited member of either of the specialist medical negligence solicitors panels run by AvMA themselves or the Law Society – the regulatory body for all solicitors throughout England and Wales.

These 2 panels are very select – only the most experienced solicitors get on them. For example, there are well over 100,000 qualified solicitors currently in England and Wales – yet just 180 of them are members of both the AvMA and Law Society panels. Our team is led by a member of both of these panels – and the team also includes a solicitor who previously qualified and practised for some years as a nurse.

So by instructing us here at Bonallack and Bishop for your medical negligence claim, you can rest assured that we have been independently assessed as genuine specialists.
