Helen Jones



I am a solicitor specialising in medical negligence cases. My job involves securing financial compensation for clients who have suffered an injury (either physical or psychological) as a result of medical negligence. I have my own caseload and also assist more senior fee earners. 

I have experience in a variety of claims including mismanagement of mothers and babies at birth, negligently performed surgical procedures, misdiagnosis and delays in treatment as well as failures in GP and community care.  

I qualified as a solicitor in September 2014 after completing a two year training contract at Irwin Mitchell. Prior to starting my training contract I read Law at the University of Sheffield and completed a Post-Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice at the University of Law. 

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I decided I wanted to study Law whilst completing my A-levels. I was fascinated by the speed at which the law changes, and the far reaching effect those changes have on every individual in society. 

Whilst studying Law I decided that I wanted to become a solicitor so that I could use the knowledge and understanding that I had gained to help other people. 

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role? 

Being able to get financial compensation for clients and seeing how it improves their situation is rewarding but I also think that clients benefit from having someone to talk to during what is almost always a difficult time in their lives. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

It is rewarding and enjoyable to be part of a team of specialists in medical negligence and personal injury who have their clients' needs and goals at the centre of everything they do. 

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

Outside of work I play league badminton and netball. I am interested in modern British history and also enjoy clay pigeon shooting.

    Mum Who Miscarried Four Times Gave Birth To Stillborn Son After Hospital Failed To Follow High-Risk Pregnancy Care Plan

    “Having suffered the heartbreak of four miscarriages – one ending in a distressing stillbirth, Stacey felt confident that she was coming under the care of Bassetlaw District General Hospital already armed with a high risk pregnancy care plan. "So to lose Tobias and then learn that following that there were missed opportunities to save him was a bitter blow from which she is still trying to recover. “What was particularly concerning was the disregard to Stacey’s concerns when she presented at the hospital with reduced movement from her baby. On these occasions Stacey’s case should have been escalated to an obstetrician – a decision which could have saved Tobias’ life. “Stacey hopes that by admitting liability and apologising for its mistakes, the Trust will have learned from this tragic case and avoid causing further suffering to other expectant parents.”
