Veterinary Professional Negligence

When you pay for a vet to provide their services to you, they are bound by law to complete their required task to the standard which can reasonably be expected of members of their profession. This means that if they make an error which results in a substantial loss, you can make a claim against them for compensation. Depending upon the circumstances, this loss can in some cases be injury and in serious cases be death of the animal.

To establish whether or not a vet has acted negligently, their actions will be compared to actions which would have been taken by their peers. If it is ruled that other professionals would not have acted in the same way this could result in your claim being successful. There is a broad range of ways in which a vet may have been negligent but commonly negligence claims are based around failure to administer correct treatment - such as drugs, or around the negligent execution of treatment - such as negligently performed surgical procedures.

Depending on the extent of the damage the negligence has caused, you may have different aims when you are making a complaint. Make your wishes clear to vet whose actions have been damaging to you and your animal. You may find that a vet will gladly perform corrective surgery free of charge and offer you a refund following negotiations between the two of you. However, if the vet is not admitting any fault and you are unable to receive the refund, correction, apology or compensation that you are aiming for - contact a specialist veterinary negligence solicitor.

1st Claims Veterinary Negligence Advice

Each claim is slightly different and the circumstances which may result in errors are broad. Veterinary surgeons do not only work with domestic pets but also with farm animals and zoo animals - you may be wishing to claim on behalf of your business, or on behalf of your family.

Due to this variety it is important you get in touch with us here at 1st Claims so we can give you expert advice as to whether or not you have valid grounds to make a claim for compensation. We will talk you through the options available to you and help you consider whether or not legal action is the right route for you. We offer all initial enquiries completely free of charge.

If you decide you wish to pursue legal action 1st Claims will put you in touch with the perfect solicitor for you, so you can continue with your claim in the best hands. No enquiry obligates you to continue with your claim or to continue your claim with us, so contact us today - you have nothing to lose.

Please call us free on 0800 2888 693 (from a mobile click to call: 01275 774 557) or complete our enquiry form on the right of this page and we will be in touch with you.

Remember, it costs nothing to call us or complete an enquiry, and you will be advised of all of the funding options available to you. You can then decide whether to take any further action or to do nothing else, but at least you will fully understand your legal rights.
