I am an associate solicitor in the Medical Negligence team in our London office. I specialise in representing individuals who have been injured as a result of medical negligence by GPs, hospitals or other healthcare providers. I also have experience of acting in fatal cases and assisting families with the inquest process.
I manage my own varied case load covering a full range of medical issues, including psychiatric, surgical, obstetric, neonatal, orthopaedic, and cosmetic cases and claims involving a delay in diagnosis of cancer.
I also assist a Partner in particularly complex and high value cases, involving spinal and birth injuries and delays in diagnosis of meningitis. Some of my cases have featured in regional press titles including the Surrey Mirror and Epsom Guardian.
I work hard to achieve the best results for my clients, not only in terms of compensation, but also to facilitate the rehabilitation process to improve the quality of life for them and their family.
I also hold a Senior Litigator status with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and I am accredited by them as a Clinical Negligence Specialist. I speak fluent Polish.
I was shortlisted for PIC Magazine’s Clinical Negligence Rising Star Award 2018, and I won the award in 2019.
"Ania was a great help all the way through my case, and was there to help with every query I had - nothing was too much. She pulled together professionals from all fields to build my case even during a lockdown. Other firms told me I didn't have a case - yet we won! I'd highly recommend Irwin Mitchell, especially Ania. Thank you so much." - Scott, client
"I can't thank you enough for your support throughout this process. It's been a rollercoaster ride for sure... but you have been very proactive and professional throughout this case and I appreciate all your help." - Ruby, client
"My case was complex, and I was looking for the best solicitor to deal with it. From my first call with Ania, I can 100% say she's the best solicitor for handling any kind of complex case. She explained everything to me very clearly. She was always happy to clarify my doubts and was easily reachable. I always felt that my case was going in the right direction due to her expertise, and I got a positive result at the end. I'm very grateful to Ania and her team." - Ania's client
"What can I say? Excellent service without a doubt. The team were professional and always kept me posted on what was going on by mail or phone. Ania Bean was a star in the whole situation." - Matthew, client
What inspired you to get into law?
I have always wanted to pursue a career involving helping people and making a difference and fought strongly for what I believe in. I also enjoy the varied nature of clinical negligence work as two cases are never the same.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I find helping people through what can be an incredibly difficult time in their lives and seeing the difference a compensation award makes to their quality of life very rewarding.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
The people at Irwin Mitchell are passionate about helping people who have been injured through no fault of their own. We always look at the whole picture, trying to access rehabilitation, long term financial planning and any other resources our clients may need to move on with their lives; we also have the benefit of being supported by our Court of Protection, Public Law, Employment and Probate departments. At the same time, we work in small close-knit teams and are able to participate in numerous initiatives the firm supports. I am a member of the charity committee and regularly organise events to raise money for our charity of the year.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy singing and I am part of the Irwin Mitchell choir. I am also an avid football supporter and a keen reader.

Jestem polskojęzycznym prawnikiem, specjalizującym sie w sprawach cywilnych wynikających z zaniedbań lekarskich przez lekarzy rodzinnych, szpitale lub prywatnych lekarzy i terapeutów.
Moje sprawy obejmują wiele dziedzin, w tym: psychiatrię, chirurgię, chirurgię plastyczną, ginekologię i położnictwo, pediatrię, i sprawy wynikajace z opóznień w diagnozie i leczeniu nowotworów.
Dodatkowo asystuję innym prawnikom podczas prowadzenia szczególnie skomplikowanych spraw, które generują wysokie odszkodowania dla naszych klientów. W szczególności dotyczy to spraw klientów z urazami kręgosłupa, urazami mózgu zaznanymi w czasie porodu, w wyniku niedotlenienia lub wynikających z opóznień w diagnozie i leczeniu zapalenia opon mózgowych.
Pracuję bardzo cieżko, aby uzyskać dobre rezultaty dla klientów, nie tylko w sensie wysokości odszkodowania i zadośćuczynienia, ale także aby umożliwić klientom jak najszybszy dostęp do rehabilitacji i terapii, które pomogą polepszyć jakość życia poszkodowanych i ich rodzin.
