Veterinary negligence solicitors

You may have used a vet to diagnose an illness, perform an operation or assess the health and overall wellbeing of your pet prior to purchase. If your vet has failed to provide you with the correct information in relation to any of the above, you may well be eligible to compensation. Speak to our experience team of experts today if you think your pet has been subject to veterinary negligence.

Our team have particular experience within the equine industry, where people looking to buy horses seek the services of a vet to obtain a five stage vetting report. We have regularly represented clients who have purchased horses only for them to become lame or suffer other serious health issues and implications due to an issue being missed by a vet.
