About Stephen Jesson

Steve joined the Personal Injury team at Sydney Mitchell in 2014 with over 35 years of experience in pursuing personal injury claims firstly for members of the RAC and AA and then on behalf of members of a large union.

Steve deals with all types of personal injury including

  • accidents at work
  • industrial disease
  • upper limb disorders ie repetitive strain injuries/vibratory injuries
  • road traffic accidents
  • clinical negligence
  • trips, slips, falls on private and public land
  • victims of criminal assault

Recent Cases

Steve recently resolved a clinical negligence claim for a client who was left with nerve damage following hip replacement surgery. Investigations revealed that the surgery was unnecessary. Claim ultimately settled for £100,000.

What our clients say

"I felt nervous to begin this claim, but felt justified in that my injury was needless forcing me to have an operation and affecting my mobility at the beginning of my retirement. I started with another firm, one advertised on TV, but was dismayed at their professionalism. Sydney Mitchell was recommended by a family member, so I cancelled the other firm, still unsure of the process. Ms Shorthouse was wonderful- from her first initial visit to my home. When she explained everything it gave me more confidence. The fight for my compensation has been challenging but she persisted and I have to thank her and Steve Jesson, who took over the case, for their hard work. Thank you so much."

"Very satisfied with the work carried out, very informative and good advice."
Mr Micheal J Quinney
