Based at Thompsons Solicitors’ Manchester office, but covering the whole of England and Wales, Allison Mohan is a highly experienced chartered legal executive specialising in medical negligence cases.
Allison has been successful in a wide range of claims, including those involving personal injury where there is employers’ or public liability, road accidents, and cases where the client has suffered severe work-related stress.
Her caseload is dominated by medical negligence claims. Cases can involve incorrect diagnosis and mistakes in identifying the client’s condition, with the result that the patient receives the wrong treatment. The client can be suffering life-threatening illnesses such as cancer, or may have suffered serious physical injury.
Sometimes the client has suffered damage to vital organs during botched operations. On other occasions he or she has been given the wrong prescription.
Allison’s cases can also centre on dental claims, psychological trauma, and injuries sustained during birth. She often handles claims involving the death of a patient let down by the medical profession.
Allison is aware that many clients are undergoing the most stressful time of their lives when they come to her for help. She always deals with them with professionalism, care and compassion. Allison leaves no stone unturned in her commitment to achieving the highest possible compensation.
Allison has worked for Thompsons Solicitors – and a firm with which it merged – for more than 30 years. She values its commitment to representing the injured party and never those responsible for the injuries or their insurance companies.

Medical negligence claim: A hospital technician fell and cut the leg of a 90-year-old woman with an electric saw as he was attempting to remove a plaster cast.

Medical negligence claim: A client received compensation of £22,500 after he suffered pain and limited movement after an operation to reconstruct an anterior cruciate ligament.
