Jenna Harris



I am an associate in the Medical Negligence team in Birmingham. I have worked for Irwin Mitchell since 2009 when I started as a trainee.

I act exclusively for clients in clinical negligence cases, helping people bring claims against NHS Trusts, private practitioners and general practitioners (GPs). I run my own varied case load, which includes cases resulting in stroke and profound brain damage, spinal injuries, fatalities, neonatal deaths, delay in diagnosis of cancer, and cosmetic surgery claims. I specialise in high value stroke and spinal injury cases and I am passionate about securing the maximum amount of compensation for my clients to help them get the rehabilitation they need and ensure that their future needs are also taken care of.

Before joining the Medical Negligence team I worked with the Serious Injury team in Birmingham: this means I also have experience of dealing with high complexity brain injury claims for both adults and children.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am passionate about helping people who have suffered as a result of clinical negligence. I will strive to secure financial compensation to improve quality of life and aid with rehabilitation. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell really care about their clients and ensure that they receive the best level of client care. Furthermore, at Irwin Mitchell I am fortunate enough to be working with some of the most talented clinical negligence lawyers in the country. Irwin Mitchell are the best firm in the field of clinical negligence and I am so pleased to be a member of such a brilliant team.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

When I am not working I am usually spending time with family and friends. I love travelling and before starting my career I drove the entire length of Route 66 in the USA.

    Grandmother Relives Agony Of Operation Which Left Her Partially Sighted

    Our vision is precious and deserves a high standard of care and treatment. While most eye treatments are conducted to a high standard, unfortunately Maureen did not receive the service she should have. Not only did her treatment leave her partially sighted, she then suffered the emotional trauma of being told it was part of the normal ageing process and that she’d have to live with it. Its cases like Maureen’s which illustrate the importance of getting experts to question your care if you are at all concerned with the treatment you have received and we commend her bravery in speaking out about what she went through.

    Patient Treated By Surgeon Roger Bainton Speaks About Nine Years Of 'Hell'

    Simon has been through an incredibly difficult time over the last nine years suffering horrendous injuries in a motorcycle collision which he has now been told may need further surgery as a result of the sub-standard techniques provided by Mr Bainton. “Questions also must be asked about how he was allowed to perform treatments using products that are not approved for that use by regulatory bodies and how this could go on unnoticed for so long. “Given the previous disciplinary action taken against Mr Bainton any concerns about his practice should have been investigated immediately and we believe he should have been supervised to ensure patients were not being put at risk. “We would like confirmation from the Trust that all patients who could potentially have been put at risk have been contacted and offered further support, as well as confirmation about the remit of the Trust’s internal investigations so that past, present and current patients are reassured that the matter is being taken seriously and they will get the answers they need about what has happened. It is also to be hoped the findings will be shared throughout the NHS so they can be learnt from to prevent anything similar from happening again in future.”

    Distraught Parents Call For Action After NHS Trust Staff Fail To Refer Their Son For Tests

    Billy’s family has been left devastated because his early childhood was severely hampered by the delay to diagnose and treat him, despite the family raising their concerns repeatedly with health professionals. “Billy requires a lot of intensive treatment to help assist his development. The settlement will provide Billy with vital funding to assist with his treatment and provide future financial support.” “We hope that lessons are learned by the Trust from Billy’s case and that all staff are adequately trained to ensure that children are given the appropriate tests to identify and treat health issues as quickly as possible.”

    Surgeon Roger Bainton 'Harmed' Patients Inquiry Finds

    The results of the RCS inquiry are deeply concerning as it is simply unacceptable for any patients undergoing surgery to fall victim to unnecessary harm. “It is worrying that so many patients have been affected and questions remain about how Mr Bainton was allowed to perform treatments using products that are not approved for that use by the regulatory bodies. “The Trust must be transparent in communicating with all patients affected as they deserve answers about what systems potentially failed to allow this surgeon to carry out unacceptable practices on such a wide scale. “This is the only way to provide reassurance that steps have been taken to ensure the same harm can never be caused again.”
