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.
Eddie's department is one of just two firms in the Manchester area awarded a Tier 1 ranking in independent legal industry guides Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500.
Eddie was awarded Star Individual status in Chambers and Partners in recognition of his extensive expertise. The guide notes he has particular expertise in child brain injury cases and cauda equina syndrome and receives extensive praise from clients who say: 'His attention to detail is excellent and, given the magnitude of the work he undertakes, he does a sterling job." The guide also quotes a client as saying "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."
Eddie is also ranked as a leading individual in the Legal 500. The 2020 edition quotes a contact as saying: “Eddie Jones is a genuinely caring individual who is very efficient and knowledgeable in the machinery of the legal process. His attention to detail is outstanding, he is quick to respond and is punctual in everything from a phone call to paperwork and meetings. This man is a shining star for JMW and I can think of nothing worthy of criticism.'
Eddie has won many high-value and complex claims, including obtaining £26 million in 2019 for a child who suffered severe brain damage due to maternity failures. The same year Eddie secured £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 is a member of the Law Society’s Clinical Negligence Panel in addition to 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 House.
