Alison Eddy



I head the Medical Negligence team in London and also have expertise in neurotrauma. I specialise in claims for adults and children who have suffered brain or spinal injury, associated with permanent disability, caused as a result of clinical negligence or as a result of a road traffic collision.

Our aim is to obtain interim payments wherever possible, so that we can put rehabilitation, a care package and suitable accommodation in place before the claim is concluded. As a team, we are dedicated to improving the quality of life of our clients.

Our clinical negligence team has extensive experience in clinical negligence claims arising from obstetric, neonatal, anaesthetic, neurosurgical, cardiac and psychiatric care.

    Irwin Mitchell Partner Wins Inspirational Women In Law Award

The trend continues to the point of qualification, with 62% of newly qualified solicitors being women, up from 53% in 2000/2001. “However, the difference between proportions of men and women represented at partner level in private practice remains substantial: 41.7% of men versus 18.8% of women. Although huge strides have been made, female partner levels remain unacceptably low. “Ultimately, women can shape the future of the legal industry if they lead by example – being role models, encouraging and supporting their peers, being innovative and pushing boundaries within their firms to act as a catalyst for change.”

    National Baby Charity and Leading Law Firm Announce New Partnership

    Sadly, through our work we see first-hand the impact undiagnosed GBS can have on babies and their families. Newborns can be left severely brain damaged due to being starved of oxygen as the infection takes over their bodies, and in some devastating cases the outcome can be fatal. The work of Group B Strep Support and the information they provide is invaluable and we look forward to working closely with this excellent charity, to not only help those affected by GBS but to also help reduce the number of life-changing and fatal cases.
