What will you have to prove if you want to bring a professional negligence claim against your vet? What will your vet likely argue in response?
Weegy: If you suspect that your companion animal was injured by veterinary malpractice, there are several things that you can do. First, send a complaint to your state veterinary licensing board. [ This is a state agency, usually located in the capital, whose duties include the investigation of allegations of wrongdoing by veterinarians, including malpractice. State licensing boards have the power to suspend or remove a veterinarian's license, although this rarely happens. In addition, a complaint should be sent to the veterinary medical association in the county where the veterinarian practices. Again, demand an investigation and response. A second approach to veterinary malpractice is hiring a lawyer to negotiate a settlement or to bring a lawsuit. The biggest problem with bringing a lawsuit is that, even if you win, you usually do not recover very much money. In this country, an animal is viewed as an item of personal property according to the law, and most courts limit recovery to the cost of replacing the companion animal with another animal. Because of the low potential for a large recovery, most lawyers are unable or unwilling to take veterinary malpractice cases on a contingency basis, and it is possible that the pet owner would invest more money in legal fees than can be recovered. Finally, you must understand that neither complaining to the state veterinary licensing board, nor filing a lawsuit, will alleviate the sense of loss that you feel. You must allow yourself to grieve fully. Check with your local humane society to see whether they offer grief counseling sessions, or talk with other owners who have lost their beloved animals. Also see ALDF’s suggestions on Getting Through Grief for some compassionate advice for dealing with your animal’s death. ] (More)
