Jennifer Mullins



I am a solicitor specialising in international personal injury as well as domestic illness. I manage a team in the Birmingham office which primarily deals with group actions against UK-based tour operators.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

From a young age I have wanted to pursue a career which was both challenging and rewarding. As I enjoy debating matters, a career in law was the natural choice.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

Being able to achieve the best possible outcome for an individual whose life has been adversely affected through no fault of their own.

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Knowing that I am working with one of the top twenty national law firms in England and Wales whose reputation in the field of personal injury is second to none. 

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I have a new found love for landscape photography, so I now spend a lot of time at weekends in the Peak District as well as the Lake District.

    More Than 85 Children Fall Ill At Welsh Primary School

    “It is welcome that the local authority has warned parents generally not to send their children to school if they show symptoms of norovirus in order to prevent the illness from spreading any further, and also that they have taken steps to close Milton Junior School. “This is the third large illness outbreak reported at schools across the country in recent weeks and it is important that a thorough investigation is conducted into each of these outbreaks to establish if the measures in place to deal with these incidents are sufficient. “We have seen through our work that gastric illnesses of this nature can be particularly dangerous for young people and can have a long-term impact on their health. “Due to the number of young people falling ill, it is clear that many people will be seeking answers and it is vital that the parents of those affected understand what caused their child’s illness.”

    Couple Instructs Expert Travel Lawyers to Investigate Illness On Board Fred Olsen’s Balmoral Cruise Ship

    “Having heard first-hand accounts of the illness Julia and Anthony suffered in April 2016 and the problems repeatedly suffered by passengers in May and July 2015, we are shocked to hear further reports of illness emerge on board the Balmoral this month. “Clearly a significant number of passengers and crew members have fallen ill in this latest norovirus outbreak and we hope that this latest outbreak will lead to action being taken to ensure that the ship is free from norovirus ahead of its next voyage. We hope that Fred Olsen will take all appropriate measures to help prevent another outbreak from occurring. “In addition to this, we would urge Fred Olsen to commence a full investigation into the outbreak if they have not already done so, to identify where improvements can be made to heighten hygiene standards and safety on future voyages. “Norovirus is contagious and can leave victims suffering with significant symptoms which can have a huge impact on their day-to-day lives. The last thing passengers should be considering when booking a cruise is whether they could fall ill. “Our investigations into the cause of the illnesses on the Balmoral in April 2016 are underway, however we remain very keen to hear from anyone else affected who may be able to provide further information regarding the outbreak of illness, and the circumstances giving rise to it.”

    E.Coli And Cryptosporidium Outbreaks Being Investigated At Leeds Petting Farm

    “The discovery of Cryptosporidium and E.Coli is always concerning and we welcome the PHE’s involvement in the investigation, as well as the owner’s decision to close the farm while the source of the outbreak was investigated. “Cryptosporidium is a very common disease in young farm animals and as such it is important that farm attractions make use of the Industry Code of Practice on how to protect visitors and staff from illness, to ensure that they are doing all that they can to comply with the law. "The focus must now be on protecting the general public by ensuring that the cause of the outbreak is identified and action is taken to help prevent similar incidents in the future. “Illnesses such as E.Coli and Cryptosporidium can have serious health implications for those affected and we regularly represent people who sadly face long-term health problems as a result of these infections.”

    Suspected Norovirus Outbreak On-board Balmoral Cruise Ship

    “It’s deeply concerning to see reports of this illness outbreak on-board the Balmoral cruise ship. “Norovirus is contagious and can leave victims suffering with significant symptoms which can have a huge impact on their day-to-day lives. The last thing passengers should be considering when booking a cruise is whether they could fall ill. “Through our work representing those who have suffered illnesses following stays on board cruise ships, we understand just how serious the consequences of such illness outbreaks can be. "We hope that reassurances are provided by Fred Olsen Cruise Lines and that any measures required to try to prevent incidents like this in the future will be implemented immediately.”
