I am a Senior Associate in the Medical Negligence team in our London office. I specialise in representing individuals who have been injured as a result of medical negligence by GPs, hospitals or other healthcare providers. I also have experience of acting in fatal cases and assisting families with the inquest process.
I specialise in particularly complex and high value cases, involving spinal and birth injuries and delays in diagnosis of meningitis. My varied case load covers a full range of medical issues, including psychiatric, surgical, obstetric, neonatal, orthopaedic, and cosmetic cases and claims involving a delay in diagnosis of cancer. Some of my cases have featured in regional press titles including the Surrey Mirror and Epsom Guardian.
I work hard to achieve the best results for my clients, not only in terms of compensation, but also to facilitate the rehabilitation process to improve the quality of life for them and their family.
I also hold a Senior Litigator status with the Association of Personal Injury Lawyers (APIL) and I am accredited by them as a Clinical Negligence Specialist. I speak fluent Polish. I was shortlisted for PIC Magazine’s Clinical Negligence Rising Star Award 2018, and I won the award in 2019.
What inspired you to get into law?
I have always wanted to pursue a career involving helping people and making a difference and fought strongly for what I believe in. I also enjoy the varied nature of clinical negligence work as two cases are never the same.
What is the most rewarding aspect of your role?
I find helping people through what can be an incredibly difficult time in their lives and seeing the difference a compensation award makes to their quality of life very rewarding.
What do you like about working at Irwin Mitchell?
The people at Irwin Mitchell are passionate about helping people who have been injured through no fault of their own. We always look at the whole picture, trying to access rehabilitation, long term financial planning and any other resources our clients may need to move on with their lives; we also have the benefit of being supported by our Court of Protection, Public Law, Employment and Probate departments. At the same time, we work in small close-knit teams and are able to participate in numerous initiatives the firm supports. I am a member of the charity committee and regularly organise events to raise money for our charity of the year.
What do you do away from the office?
I enjoy singing and I am part of the Irwin Mitchell choir. I am also an avid football supporter and a keen reader.

"Ania was a great help all the way through my case, and was there to help with every query I had - nothing was too much. She pulled together professionals from all fields to build my case even during a lockdown. Other firms told me I didn't have a case - yet we won! I'd highly recommend Irwin Mitchell, especially Ania. Thank you so much." - Scott, client
"I can't thank you enough for your support throughout this process. It's been a rollercoaster ride for sure... but you have been very proactive and professional throughout this case and I appreciate all your help." - Ruby, client
"My case was complex, and I was looking for the best solicitor to deal with it. From my first call with Ania, I can 100% say she's the best solicitor for handling any kind of complex case. She explained everything to me very clearly. She was always happy to clarify my doubts and was easily reachable. I always felt that my case was going in the right direction due to her expertise, and I got a positive result at the end. I'm very grateful to Ania and her team." - Ania's client
"What can I say? Excellent service without a doubt. The team were professional and always kept me posted on what was going on by mail or phone. Ania Bean was a star in the whole situation." - Matthew, client
"Irwin Mitchell have worked on my medical negligence case for over 3+ years. We have finally settled and my claim (which was complex) was a success. From my very first conversation with Ania Bean she was kind, understanding & professional. She kept me informed and updated every step of the way. I can’t thank her enough, she made a difficult process smooth and as pain free for me as possible. Nothing was ever too much and Ania was as always on the other end of the phone or email when needed. Not only did she do her job to the best of her ability, I know that she genuinely cared and wanted only the best result for me and didn’t stop until that was achieved. I am extremely grateful. I would recommend Irwin Mitchell without a shadow of a doubt. Thank you for all your time and effort over the years. You are fantastic." - 5* Trustpilot review
"From the very beginning of my personal medical negligence case she has been outstanding. Ania's guidance, compassion and expertise guided me through the entire process. She kept me well informed. Without Ania's help, support and focus to reach the best possible outcome, I feel the three years plus it took my case to settle would have felt like a very long and dry legal process. The result Ania achieved will definitely help me to now re-focus on the future. Finally, would I recommend Ania and her team? A resounding yes." - 5* Trustpilot review
"My medical negligence case was quite complex and I was looking for best solicitor to deal with it. I called Irwin Mitchell based on my research and spoke to Ania Bean to discuss it. From that first call to the number of conversations (I had with her on my case), I can 100% say that she is the best solicitor for handling any kind of complex case. She explained to me each and everything very clearly.
She was always happy to clarify any of my doubts anytime and was easily reachable when I was in need. I got a positive result at the end and I am very much grateful to her and her entire team for sorting it out. During the case, I always felt that my case is going in the right direction due to her expertise and eventually ended successfully. Thanks a lot to Ania and Irwin Mitchell." - 5* Trustpilot review
"It been almost 6 years since we started our legal process, despite the lengthy process, we as a family knew that the people at Irwin Mitchell, especially Ania and Oliver would take care of us. We can’t express how grateful we are for everything they’ve done for our daughters case, and how they dealt with everything throughout the years. The case is still far from finished, but it’s clear they care for us, they always listen to our problems and mostly important they care about our daughters future.
We have a saying in my country, “If you treat my children well, you are treating me well” and this couldn’t be any more true for Anina and her team. Thank you so much for your kind help and everything you guys have done so far, we are so grateful to have found someone like yourselves. When we can, we hope to give you the big hug you and your team deserves! Thank you!!" - 5* Trustpilot review
"Without the dedication of the Irwin Mitchell team, and in particular Anita Jewitt and Ania Bean, the positive outcome that has been reached would not have been possible. From the very first day I met Anita and Ania, they have, at each stage explained and kept me informed of all that was happening.
"Their dedication to providing a first class professional service has been second to none. I would have no hesitation in recommending Anita/Ania from the Medical Negligence Team at the London office. There are actually no words to express how grateful I am for all they have done in achieving the result they have." - 5* Trustpilot review
