Jenna Harris

Senior Associate


I am a senior associate in the Medical Negligence team in Birmingham. I have worked for Irwin Mitchell since 2009 when I started as a trainee.

I act exclusively for clients in clinical negligence cases, helping people bring claims against NHS Trusts, private practitioners and general practitioners (GPs). I run my own varied case load, which includes cases resulting in stroke and profound brain damage, spinal injuries, fatalities, neonatal deaths, delay in diagnosis of cancer, and cosmetic surgery claims. I specialise in high value stroke and spinal injury cases and I am passionate about securing the maximum amount of compensation for my clients to help them get the rehabilitation they need and ensure that their future needs are also taken care of.

Before joining the Medical Negligence team I worked with the Serious Injury team in Birmingham: this means I also have experience of dealing with high complexity brain injury claims for both adults and children.

What Is The Most Rewarding Aspect Of Your Role?

I am passionate about helping people who have suffered as a result of clinical negligence. I will strive to secure financial compensation to improve quality of life and aid with rehabilitation. 

What Do You Like About Working At Irwin Mitchell?

Irwin Mitchell really care about their clients and ensure that they receive the best level of client care. Furthermore, at Irwin Mitchell I am fortunate enough to be working with some of the most talented clinical negligence lawyers in the country. Irwin Mitchell are the best firm in the field of clinical negligence and I am so pleased to be a member of such a brilliant team.

What Do You Do Away From The Office?

When I am not working I am usually spending time with family and friends. I love travelling and before starting my career I drove the entire length of Route 66 in the USA.

    £2m Settlement For Dad Left Paralysed After Doctors Failed To Diagnose And Treat Spinal Abscess

    Once Kevin arrived at hospital a full examination based on his symptoms and a MRI scan would have shown that his condition was deteriorating. Action could have been taken the same day to cure Kevin’s spinal infection with likelihood being he would have made a full recovery. “For him to wait until the following day for the severity of his condition to be diagnosed was a clear breach in the duty of care he should have expected to receive. “While no amount of money can ever compensate for the way Kevin and his family’s life has been turned upside down, we hope that the settlement will now allow them to focus on the future and help them to try and get their lives back on track as much as they can. “We urge the NHS Trust to learn lessons from this sad case so others don’t have to suffer the pain Kevin and his family have gone through.”

    Grandmother Relives Agony Of Operation Which Left Her Partially Sighted

    Our vision is precious and deserves a high standard of care and treatment. While most eye treatments are conducted to a high standard, unfortunately Maureen did not receive the service she should have. Not only did her treatment leave her partially sighted, she then suffered the emotional trauma of being told it was part of the normal ageing process and that she’d have to live with it. Its cases like Maureen’s which illustrate the importance of getting experts to question your care if you are at all concerned with the treatment you have received and we commend her bravery in speaking out about what she went through.
