Presented by the ISBA Animal Law Section
Historically, veterinary malpractice relied on the market value of an animal; however, in modern society – where pets are considered members of our families – it is not surprising that the financial consequences of veterinary malpractice claims are on the rise. Join us from the comfort of your home or office for a look at veterinary malpractice from both the plaintiff and defendant perspectives. Animal law attorneys, tort practitioners, and those interested in veterinary malpractice who attend this online seminar will better understand: 
  • The standards of review for veterinary professionals and associated tort actions; 
  • How Illinois governs licensing (and review) of veterinarians;  
  • When veterinarians might be sued for malpractice or reported to the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation; 
  • How to submit a report; 
  • What steps to take in a civil suit; 
  • Issues that may need an expert, including the use of unauthorized drugs, an unlicensed vet, and complicated procedures versus obvious mistakes; 
  • How reprimands, fines, and a loss of license can occur; and
  • Much more!
