If you’ve suffered as a result of poor orthopaedic treatment, such as complications during a hip or knee replacement, Tees can help you get through it.
Orthopaedic surgery is surgery on problems that occur in the bones, ligaments or joints, such as a knee or hip replacement. Sometimes, surgery or treatment goes wrong. You might be in permanent pain, or have mobility issues as a result of the treatment. Just when you should be feeling better, these setbacks can be devastating.
Medical mistakes can have life-changing consequences. If you feel your treatment was below standard, our medical negligence specialists can help you move forward.
You’ll want to talk to someone who has the experience and knowledge to help you find out what has gone wrong and what you can do about it.
We have many years’ experience of helping clients to find out what went wrong with their care and have secured £millions in compensation for orthopaedic claims. This means we completely understand what you’re going through and we know what it takes to help you through this difficult time.
When you come to us for help, we’ll listen carefully to your story; what’s happened to you and we will ask you what outcome you might want. Then we’ll use our knowledge and experience to look closely at the details of your case and give you clear, honest and realistic advice. We’ll explain your options in plain language and recommend a way forward.
We understand that you’ll probably want to know why things went wrong, and you’ll want to make sure it doesn’t happen to anybody else. We can help you do that.
We will tell you if you have a case for compensation.
Substandard orthopaedic treatment can be devastating both physically and emotionally. You may have lasting complications, require ongoing treatment or need additional surgery in the future.
We understand that every claim is different, so we take the time to understand how your treatment has affected you, your family and your income; what your future needs are, whether treatment, care, specialist equipment and so on; and how much it will cost.
We will help you get the best possible financial settlement for your needs.
You might already have tried to talk to doctors about your condition but sometimes it can feel like you’re on your own. With Tees by your side, you are not. We understand what you're going through, and we're here to give you a voice.

If you need further treatment, we'll help you get it, and ensure that your compensation covers the cost.
We will not charge you to assess your case – this will be free.
After that, there are many ways you can pursue the case without you having to pay the costs as the case proceeds, e.g. Insurance, a No Win, No Fee Agreement. We will discuss the options with you once we have completed the free initial assessment but if you want to know more now, please get in touch.
