Medical Negligence


Principal Medical Negligence Lawyer



Based at Thompsons Solicitors’ Manchester office, Clare Jones is a highly-regarded senior lawyer who supervises colleagues in the medical negligence solicitors department and takes some of the most complex and high-value cases herself.

Clare has dealt with cases involving extremely serious injuries where damages have run into millions of pounds.

Among Clare’s medical negligence claims are amputationsvaginal mesh implantsbirth injuriesbrain trauma, chronic pain and delays in the diagnosis of cancer and a whole range of orthopaedic injuries.

Clare also has considerable experience of taking cases involving personal injury sustained in road accidents, which have involved complex life-changing injuries.

Clare seeks to maximise compensation for her clients in the shortest possible time. But as a key part of her approach to her job, Clare takes the trouble to build relationships with her clients at a time when they are invariably experiencing the most stressful events in their lives. Clare sees her role as extending far beyond technical legal help and assists clients to re-build their lives.

She values working for Thompsons because of its insistence on treating clients with care and respect.


Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (FILEx) and a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL).


In her spare time Clare enjoys long walks, plays golf, writes songs and is a member of one of the largest all-ladies choirs in the North West of England. But as a mother of two teenage children a lot of time is spent with her family. If there is any time left, there is a “crazy” cocker spaniel to look after.
