Partner and Head of Department Manchester Clinical Negligence
A specialist clinical negligence solicitor and head of the clinical negligence team at JMW, Eddie Jones is widely regarded as a leading practitioner in the field.
As well as leading the clinical negligence practice at JMW, Eddie specialises in brain and spinal injury cases and has secured many multi-million-pound compensation settlements for children and adults. This includes obtaining £26 million for a child who suffered severe brain damage due to maternity failures and £9.3 million in compensation for a man with permanent disabilities due to negligent cauda equina syndrome care. Clients frequently comment on his kind and compassionate nature and say he is a trusted source of support at one of the most challenging times of their life.
Eddie's department is one of just two firms in the North West awarded a Tier 1 ranking in independent legal industry guides Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500.
In recognition of his personal contribution to his clients and his expertise, Eddie was again awarded Star Individual status in the 2022 edition of Chambers and Partners. Chambers notes that interviewees said he 'is very professional, efficient and approachable.' 'He's very experienced, very dedicated to the client and very alive to difficulties of the case - extremely good.' Eddie has previously been described by Chambers as a ‘titan in the field of clinical negligence’.
Eddie is also ranked as a leading individual in the Legal 500 which describes him as 'compassionate and sympathetic'.
A member of the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Panel and Action against Medical Accidents’ solicitor referral panel, Eddie was the winner of the Partner of the Year award at the 2019 Manchester Legal Awards. He is involved with numerous charities and support services and is on the board of directors of children's charity Rainbow Hub.

What others say
His attention to detail is excellent and, given the magnitude of the work he undertakes, he does a sterling job.
He went above and beyond the demands of his role. He was sensitive and empathetic when dealing with issues that I found difficult to discuss. Eddie is quite simply brilliant.
He is immensely hardworking and can take a novel approach when needed to pursue the right litigation strategy
