Solicitor negligence claims

If a solicitor has mishandled your medical negligence claim, Tees can help get your claim back on track.

Starting your claim for solicitor negligence

When you make a medical negligence claim you’ll want to work with solicitors who you can trust and who know what they’re doing. There’s a good chance that’s exactly what you’ll get, as in recent years, the standard of legal advice in medical negligence claims has improved. 

Still, things can go wrong: some firms pursue claims when they don’t have the expertise or experience, and even the best firms can make mistakes. If you’re in the situation where you’re concerned about the conduct of your claim or the quality of advice you’ve been given, you need to get a reliable second opinion on whether you have a professional negligence claim against your previous solicitor.

How we can help you

You should speak to a solicitor with expertise in both medical negligence and solicitor negligence claims who can take an impartial view of the situation, explain your position, and advise you on what to do next. You might also be entitled to financial compensation if you have suffered a loss. 

Clear, practical advice

When you come to us for help, we’ll listen carefully to your story and we’ll 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.

Financial compensation

We will tell you if you have a case for compensation – we've been working in medical negligence for years and we know how the system works.

Every case is unique, but the impact of an error can be emotionally and physically devastating. It could mean you got less compensation than you should have to secure your family’s future, or to pay for professional carers, medical treatment or therapies, specialist equipment, housing needs and so on. We’ll factor it all into any claim or complaint.

With you every step of the way

When somebody else has has let you down, it’s hard to trust anyone else. But we’ll be sensitive your needs, and we’ll work with you to help you understand what went wrong and to put it right. And if we can’t put it right, we’ll look at other options.

Don’t worry about costs

We won’t charge you to assess your case – it’s free. After that, you can pursue your case in different ways without you having to pay the costs as it proceeds, for example, with insurance or a no-win no-fee agreement. We’ll discuss the options with you once we’ve completed the initial assessment, but if you want to know more now, please get in touch.

  • Settling for too low a level of compensation
  • Incorrect deduction of costs
