Norman Jones brings wealth of Clinical Negligence knowledge to PHR


Solicitor Norman Jones joins Percy Hughes & Roberts to bolster civil litigation team with vast legal experience.

Percy Hughes & Roberts are pleased to welcome civil litigation solicitor, Norman Jones, to the firm as a consultant.  Norman has worked within the legal sector for several decades and brings a wealth of clinical negligence expertise to the civil litigation team.

Norman, who qualified as a solicitor in 1976, set up his own firm in 1990 acting primarily with clinical negligence disputes and industrial disease claims. He relishes the opportunity of joining Percy Hughes & Roberts, having a great deal of respect for the firm and having had an excellent working relationship over the years.

He is successful locally and nationally in bringing claims against GPs, hospitals and dentists in cases where there has been negligence. He also specialises in claims for all types of industrial disease and in particular asbestos claims.  His most notable case, which he fought all the way to the Supreme Court and won, changed the law surrounding low levels of asbestos exposure to the benefit of his client and everyone with a potential claim for the deadly asbestos disease known mesothelioma.

Norman said of joining PHR:

I’m hoping to bring expertise and a knowledge of specialist areas of law to the firm, in order to enhance the already great service it offers. There is a great symmetry between the way Percy Hughes & Roberts and I work, and I’m looking forward to bringing a lot of ideas to the team.

Norman began working in a law firm in 1963 as an office junior at the age of 15. Of his desire to continue working in the legal profession, he said:

I’ve never lost touch with dealing with clients at a human level. Helping people through often very taxing times is what this job is all about. We are always looking to get the outcome the client desires.

Norman is a member of the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL), and the Greystoke Insurance Medical Negligence Panel. He was also President of the Liverpool Law Society from 2010-11.

Norman was born and raised in Birkenhead and devotes a lot of his time giving back to the community. He is a director of Wirral Ark which helps fight homelessness, and has been a member of the Birkenhead Rotary Club for over 20 years.

Norman was in the Territorial Army for 35 years, serving in the field hospital medical unit. He left in 2003 as a Major. Beginning as a Private and leaving as Regimental Administration Officer, he has a wealth of knowledge surrounding clinical military matters which has helped bring successful claims against the Ministry of Defence. In addition to this, when he finds time, Norman also enjoys running 10k marathons.

Jackie Smith, Managing Partner at Percy Hughes & Roberts, said of Norman’s appointment:

We are delighted to welcome Norman into our team. He brings vast legal experience with him and it allows the firm to offer help to people who may have been the victim of clinical negligence.
