Can a Vet be sued for malpractice ?

1 Answers. Asked on Feb 28th, 2017 on Animal Law - Florida
More details to this question:
My Vet gave my very healthy an antibiotic injection that killed her 5 days later. it was extremely strong and I believe he gave her a high dose. All she had was a skin infection, nothing life threatening. Had I ever been told how strong it was I would have never allowed it. The drug was Covenia and has caused many deaths. This isn't right, drug company not concerned and neither is the vet. Someone needs to be accountable for this.

Yes - but they are very expensive cases to pursue and not usually done on a contingent fee, so you will have to pay the legal fees out of pocket.

Animal Law
Whether you own cats, dogs and other pets; breed animals for show and sale; raise livestock, or hunt wild animals, a host of federal, state and local laws govern animals and their welfare. Animal laws also intersect with our day-to-day lives: Can a landlord refuse to rent to you if you own a pet? Can service animals accompany their owners into places where pets aren't traditionally welcome? What happens to the beloved family pet when a couple gets divorced? Whether you're an animal advocate, have been accused of animal cruelty, have a pet that's died as a result of veterinary malpractice or are concerned about the welfare of animals at a local zoo or circus, you need the help of an experienced animal law attorney.
