Depending on the nature of their work, a professional’s errors on the job could seriously harm another person. Some occupations are more dangerous than others. Certain professions require the use of dangerous materials, implements, or tools which could potentially cause people to sustain injuries if not used properly. Other jobs require close physical contact with clients. If their intimate physical work is performed in an unsafe manner, a professional could seriously harm the very person that hired them for their services.

In most cases, the people who perform potentially dangerous jobs undergo rigorous safety training. To work within their profession, they may require extensive vocational training, learning industry-specific skills to help them complete their tasks without the risk of physically injuring their clients.

However, if a professional working in a potentially dangerous field does not comply with their safety training, industry standards, or other rules governing their occupation, the people around them could be seriously injured, and even killed. If certain occupations neglect their safety training and perform the tasks of their profession in a negligent manner, lives can be lost and severe injuries can be sustained. 

Examples of occupations with a higher likelihood of causing others physical harm by failing to comply with their industry’s safety regulations include:

  • Police officers
  • Dentists
  • Dental hygienists 
  • Architects 
  • Engineers
  • Builders
  • Construction workers
  • Pharmacists
  • Massage therapists
  • Personal trainers
  • Doctors, nurses, physicians, and other healthcare providers 
  • And more

The injured victims of a professional’s negligence often incur substantial financial losses related to medical expenses, rehabilitative therapies, psychological counselling, lifestyle adjustments, and other necessary costs related to their recovery. If the injuries they have sustained prevent accident victims from completing the tasks associated with their own occupations, they may sustain financial losses related to lost wages, and even a reduced future earning capacity.
