Clare Pearson



I am an Associate in the International Personal Injury team specialising in group action work as well as dealing with highly complex individual matters. I deal with claims from the first point of contact through to conclusion. Over my 15 years with Irwin Mitchell I have worked on some of the largest group action claims against tour operators, securing millions of pounds worth of compensation for people who have suffered illness and whose holidays have been spoilt.

I have a proven track record at trial and have worked on ground breaking cases including the case of Eldridge and Others, which resulted in a judgment against a large UK tour operator when our clients became ill after holidays in Majorca.

I've dealt with a number of complex legionnaires cases where people have been left with significant injuries and have also experience in dealing with fatal accident claims. I have dealt with a wide variety of cases where people have suffered injury after an accident abroad.

What Inspired You To Get Into Law?

I chose a career in law because I have always had a strong sense of justice and really wanted the opportunity to work with people on a day to day basis.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role? 

I am passionate about helping clients get the best possible result and I love the thrill of a successful negotiation and the team approach that is taken to the work I do.  

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

I love the diversity that IM offers and the passion and empathy that is instilled in the team that work for IM. 

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

I love live music events and any opportunity to have a dance. I enjoy camping and walking. I also enjoy theatre and comedy and am an avid reader that can often be found with my head buried in a crime thriller.

If anyone who has stayed at the Eftalia complex has suffered similar symptoms we would like to hear from them to help us with our enquiries.”

    Family Of Five-Year-Old Who Missed Flight Home From Mexico Due To Severe Holiday Illness Considering Legal Action

    “We are very concerned by Debbie’s account of her family’s illness, especially how seriously ill Jude was during their time in Mexico. “Gastric illnesses such as salmonella can have a significant long-term impact on those affected, with such problems often leaving people with long-term health symptoms from which they often never fully recover. “We are determined to help the holidaymakers who have instructed us to obtain answers regarding the issues they have faced. As part of our investigation we would be keen to hear from anyone else who was affected or witness the problems at Sandos Caracol Eco Resort and Spa.”

    Holidaymaker Takes Legal Action Following Suspected Cryptosporidium Diagnosis for Two-Year-Old Daughter

    “Gillian was looking forward to enjoying her first holiday with Isabelle, but instead they were not only left suffering with gastric illness, they also had to endure it in a room they felt was unclean and unsuitable. “Cryptosporidium can be very serious for particularly vulnerable people such as Isabelle who is just two years old. “No one goes on holiday expecting to suffer from illness problems, as Gillian and Isabelle both did, and then return home feeling even worse than when they left. In light of this case and the wider reported cases, we urge Thomson Holidays to look into the matter to prevent other holiday makers suffering with the same issues. “If you also stayed at this hotel and suffered similar problems we would like to hear from you to assist with our enquiries.”
