Default how to deal with a bad tune?

Ok so I just went to get my car tuned again and found out the previous tuner ruined my motor. The new tuner showed me the maps and where the other tuner didn't tune the car correctly and was the direct cause for my engine failure. My question is what kind of recourse if any should I take. I understand that I have taken a risk by tuning beyond factory and am always ready to take responsibility for my actions but isn't there some kind of quality standards that should hold tuners responsible when they don't so their job the right way? If I do a ****ty job and cost my company or our customers money then it falls on me. Im extremely unhappy with the situation and am not sure what direction to take. Any suggestions?

Get copies of the maps. Make sure you understand what they mean and exactly why the tune ruined your motor. You will need to have cold hard facts. They will know how to explain there way out of it. Go to the shop that tuned your car and talk to them about it. If they are a decent shop they will try to come to a resolution that makes you both somewhat satisfied. If not you could try legal action, but that would be spendy and probably not help.

If they don't help you post their information on here and let people know who they are.

Pretty impossible to prove. Without history of knock activity with the old tune. These motors blow all the time even on the stock tune and premium fuel.

A tuner that takes the time to sit there and go table for table and bash another tuner must not have much work to do...
