    Are You Concerned About Veterinary Malpractice?

     

    Malpractice can be defined as a professional service provided that is substandard in its execution or performed without due diligence. Generally, malpractice is often associated with actions performed or not performed in the medical profession. Subsequently, these actions are detrimental upon the individual who is under the care of the medical professional. Examples of a malpractice suit being brought against a medical professional may reflect instances where there was a needless loss of life, wrong medication administered resulting in medical damage, incorrect surgical procedure conducted, or other type of medical negligence performed.

    Another area of medical service in which malpractice may be an issue are those medical actions performed or not performed on pets. Veterinary malpractice litigation may be an option for a pet owner to take if they feel that the veterinarian was negligent in the performance of their medical treatment.

    If considering veterinary malpractice it is important to understand how one may prove veterinary malpractice and the process involved.

    How To Prove Veterinary Malpractice

    In order to prove that there is veterinary malpractice involved with the animalís care, the owner of the pet must prove that their animal was harmed due to an action taken or not taken by a veterinarian. For example, assume a pet was involved in an accident. The standard operating procedure was to order x-rays, but x-rays were not taken and the pet died. Veterinary malpractice may be a course of action that the pet owner may follow based on the fact the veterinarian or staff failed to follow the standardized medical treatment to detect serious injury to the animal.

    The second step in proving veterinary malpractice is to substantiate the standard practice that should be followed by a veterinarian regarding an incident that is in question. The standard operating procedure can be substantiated by another veterinarian or other source of proof that will pass the litmus test of credibility.

    The Process

    Veterinary malpractice is not an easy process nor are there any guarantees that malpractice can be proven. Therefore, it is important to obtain legal advice before taking a legal action.

    In addition, it is important to understand the legalities associated with the ownership of a pet. Some legal jurisdictions limit the damages that can be awarded to a pet owner. This is based on the fact that these laws equate the owning of a pet to owning an inanimate piece of property.
