Fighting for Accountability
In recent years, the field of veterinary medicine has become increasingly difficult to regulate. While veterinarians accused of malpractice can be punished or have their licenses revoked by the Ohio Veterinary Medical Licensing Board, such sanctions are rarely issued. If you choose to take your case to court, we will fight to get you the compensation and the justice that you deserve.
What is Veterinary Malpractice?
“Malpractice” is the term used commonly to describe a serious error by a medical practitioner. Under Ohio law, however, the proper and more accurate legal term is “veterinary negligence.”
Either way, the issue is whether the medical professional failed to meet the standard of care ordinarily expected from others in his or her profession. If your animal has suffered harm as a result of improper veterinary care, you may be entitled to damages for veterinary negligence.
Breach of Contract
By itself, a breach of contract by an animal care provider doesn’t always constitute an act of veterinary negligence. Regardless, it is still a violation of your trust as a consumer, and we strongly believe that the professionals entrusted with your animal’s care should be held accountable for their actions.
Breach of contract disputes are a relatively common occurrence in the animal care industry, and our attorneys are well-versed in bringing these claims to a satisfactory resolution. If you have received unsatisfactory treatment in violation of a boarding or veterinary service contract, we can help you seek justice for wrongful acts.
