Hilary Wetherell



I joined Irwin Mitchell in 2000 and became a Partner in the Serious Injury team in Birmingham in 2011. I specialise in high value personal injury claims, particularly those involving brain injury. I have a particular interest in the role of the clinical case manager within litigation and I design and deliver training to case managers across the country.

I am actively involved in fundraising for Headway West Midlands.

I am a senior litigator accredited member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

In my spare time I enjoy reading and singing with the City of Birmingham Choir.

    “Charlie’s journey to recovery has been remarkable. He has demonstrated huge courage and determination and has been supported brilliantly by his family. At the beginning, his prognosis was very uncertain; it was not clear whether he would be able to walk or speak let alone get back to playing football. “Charlie’s case settled in January earlier this year and was approved by the High Court. The settlement ensures that Charlie’s future needs are secure; the money will be invested and used to pay for ongoing rehabilitation, therapy and support that he needs. “It has been brilliant to stay in touch with Charlie since then and to watch him gain in confidence and expand his horizons. He has travelled to Denmark to play in the Intercontinental CP Championships this year after being selected to play for the Northern Ireland CP team last year. He plays regularly for Solihull Moors FC Community team. “Charlie came to our Irwin Mitchell Birmingham office to present to us during the Euro Championships in June and is now touring various football clubs of the country with his motivational presentation entitled #NeverGiveUp. Charlie is also regularly invited to speak to schools, colleges and charities. “Charlie’s story is truly inspirational. He always wants to highlight the positives but is very aware that road safety, for all road users, is of paramount importance. “Charlie and Irwin Mitchell LLP fully support Brake’s Road Safety Week and make the Brake pledge.”
