Professional negligence claims

If you’ve been let down by a professional, our litigation specialists can help you make a claim to put things right and even secure compensation.

Starting your professional negligence claim

We all rely on other people to do jobs for us – builders, accountants, surveyors, yes, even solicitors! And when we pay a professional to carry out a job for us, we expect it to be done to a professional standard and completed properly. Most of the time the job Is done, we pay the bill and both parties are happy. 

Unfortunately, there are times when the work is not finished properly – or you might uncover problems further down the line. When you’re let down by professionals, there can be serious consequences which you’re left to resolve. So what can you do?

How we can help you

Tees can help you hold professionals to account for the work they've done, and any problems it may have caused. Our team of professional negligence solicitors can help you recover damages for any losses you've incurred, and get an explanation of what went wrong.

If you haven’t managed to get anywhere yourself, you’ll want to talk to someone who can help and that’s where we come in.

We can advise you on what action you can take and how likely it is that your action will be successful.
