Pets are extremely important. Whether you have a dog, cat, hamster, or another kind of pet, domestic animals feel like family. Most households go to great lengths to keep their pets safe and happy and ensure that they live long and healthy lives.
One part of caring for a pet is bringing them to the veterinarian for veterinary medical services. We trust vets and veterinary professionals to care for our pets’ health and keep them safe. Unfortunately, this is not always what happens. Just as human doctors can perform malpractice or abuse, so can vets. There are hundreds of incidents per year of veterinary malpractice and negligence.
Because your pets can’t defend themselves, you must step in for them. Our Pennsylvania veterinary malpractice attorneys can help represent you in court so that the individual or individuals who harmed your pet can be held legally responsible. Whether the incident was malicious or an accident borne of negligence, the vet should pay for what they’ve done.
When it comes to defending your pet, no firm can better represent you than our team at The Animal Law Firm. Our team is trained as animal injury lawyers and has extensive experience in this niche area of law. Our track record speaks for itself. We have a history of seeking justice for animals and putting animal welfare at the forefront of our business.
Our team has been working in animal cases via Pennsylvania law for almost a decade. We have achieved justice for more than 200 animals during that time. We are Pennsylvania’s premier animal veterinary medical attorneys, and we can defend your pet in court. No other firm has our experience, and our training, we give you the best chance of winning your case.
Unfortunately, veterinarians are sometimes negligent of their patients’ needs. Because pets can’t tell their owners what happened, it can be difficult to build your veterinary malpractice case. Therefore, as an owner, you need to know what to do.
If your animal passes away unexpectedly while under the care of a veterinarian, be sure to seek out a necropsy rather than having them cremated right away. This helps us determine the cause of death and build a case against the vet.
If your pet is alive and ill or in pain because of a veterinarian’s actions, request veterinary medical records from the vet’s office and document your pet’s symptoms with both photos and videos. These resources give you a better chance of seeking justice for your pet.
Vet malpractice cases are often more complicated than clients expect. Because the victim can’t tell their own story, we must build a case without firsthand evidence. Our attorneys have a significant amount of practice in this arena and can successfully build an effective case for your pet.
Our firm handles other cases too. If you are fighting a dog bite charge, have issues with service animal owner laws, or need to fight for pet custody, our team can help. We cover myriad pet issues because we know how important pets are. We help you fight for them with the same tenacity as if you were fighting for a human member of your family.
