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.  

In the 2017 edition of independent legal guide Chambers and Partners UK, Eddie was awarded Star Individual status in recognition of his extensive experience. The guide notes that Eddie has an 'excellent reputation as a leading brain and spinal injury expert. A source says that "he is really approachable, down-to-earth and very genuine."'  

Eddie has won many high-value and complex claims, including a catastrophic child brain injury case which settled for £6.56 million. 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 also has great expertise of spinal injury claims, particularly cauda equina syndrome cases and in 2013 secured £2.6 million for a client whose life was devastated by negligent treatment of the condition. According to stats from the NHS Litigation Authority received in November 2013 this is one of the highest compensation settlements secured on a cauda equina syndrome claim against an English hospital trust. 

Eddie is a member of the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Panel in addition to Action against Medical Accidents’ solicitor referral panel. 

Eddie was a finalist in the Partner of the Year category in the 2013 Manchester Legal Awards. He is involved with numerous charities and support services and is on the board of directors of children's charity Rainbow House and the Cauda Equina Syndrome Association

The Legal 500 2015 says Eddie "never misses the opportunity to push for more for his clients, looking to maximise the damages recovered on every occasion."
