Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for the opportunity to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do my very best to answer your legal questions.
The hospital would be liable for your dog's death if it did something negligent. In order to prove negligence, you would need to prove that the hospital did not provide the standard level of care that it should have provided in that circumstance. The easiest way to prove that is to have an expert witness testify as to the standard level of care that should have been provided, and the standard level of care that actually was provided.
Does that answer your question? Please let me know if you need clarification, as I am happy to continue helping you until you are satisfied.
It certainly wouldn't hurt to have the autopsy as evidence. You would need to link your dog's death to the hospital's conduct, so an autopsy may be very helpful (or even necessary depending on your other evidence).
Hello again. I didn't hear back from you, so I'm just checking in to make sure that you don't need more help on this issue.
