Jodie Cook

I have over 17 years experience of running medical negligence claims. Over that time I have secured tens of millions of pounds in compensation for my clients, ensuring that their needs are met for life.

Expert profile for Jodie Cook

Get to know Jodie

I started my career at a law firm in 1999, as an Office Junior, before progressing through various roles in medical negligence. I began handling medical negligence cases in 2005 and qualified as a lawyer in 2009. This has given me valuable appreciation for the roles of my whole team and an understanding of every part of the medical negligence process.

In my career I have handled a wide range of cases, including cases with catastrophic injuries. I appreciate that making a decision to bring a claim for medical negligence is never an easy one. I know that it can be a very daunting and unfamiliar process for my clients. My job is to guide my clients through the process and make it as stress free as possible.

Career highlights

In my legal career I have investigated all types of cases including fatal, amputation and complex cancer cases.

I am experienced in brain injuries, both in adults and children. In 2021 I secured compensation which will amount to a package worth over £15million, with the potential to be significantly more, for a child with cerebral palsy. That package will provide the much needed funds for therapy, equipment, care and suitable accommodation for the rest of my client’s life.


I am a Law Society Panel Member which means that I have been subject to thorough assessment by the Law Society and deemed an expert in the field of medical negligence. This is a high accolade and less than 400 clinical negligence lawyers are accredited nationally. Less than 50 lawyers are accredited in the entire of Yorkshire.

For the past several years I have been consistently singled out as a key lawyer in the Legal 500.

The extra mile

I have a keen interest in the development of others and have mentored trainee lawyers and apprentices. I manage a medical negligence team.

In my career I have also worked closely alongside marketing and I was the business development lead for a national department. I have led work with charities, helping to raise much needed funds to support the great work they do.
