Cape Breton Professional Negligence Lawyer

Depending on the nature of a person’s job, errors in judgment at their workplace may cause others to sustain physical injuries. Everyone makes mistakes. However, if a person’s job requires them to come into physical contact with another Cape Breton resident, or indirectly affects the quality of someone else’s life, their mistakes could have severe– even fatal– consequences.

Some jobs that could potentially lead to another person’s accidental injury or death include:

  • Police officers
  • Dentists
  • Dental hygienists
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Builders
  • Construction workers
  • Pharmacists
  • Massage therapists
  • Doctors, nurses, physicians, and other healthcare providers (through Medical Malpractice claims)
  • And more

Jobs that require professionals to come into physical contact with their clients or members of the public are often regulated by industry standards, or other laws dictating how their duties should be performed. These standards exist to ensure that clients will not be physically harmed by the very people they employ to provide a service.

The same is true of occupations that have an indirect impact on the lives of other people. If an architect, engineer, builder, or construction worker does not perform the tasks of their job in accordance with their industry’s safety regulations or standards, their negligence may have earth-shattering repercussions for unsuspecting people weeks, months, or years after their construction project has been completed.

Occupations that have the potential to cause physical harm usually require the people who perform them to undergo rigorous safety training to prevent injuries from occurring on the job. If a professional fails to comply with their safety training, or otherwise neglects to properly perform their duties in accordance with industry standards, they put others at risk of sustaining severe injuries.

No one expects to be injured by a professional’s failure to perform their job according to their industry’s safety regulations. Depending on the manner in which the injuries were sustained and their level of severity, victims of a professional’s negligence can incur substantial financial losses. Injured victims may be forced to pay out of pocket for costly medical procedures and lifestyle adjustments as a result of the injuries they sustained. Furthermore, if their newly acquired medical conditions prevent them from returning to work, injured victims may lose wages, face reduced future earning potential, and experience financial distress.

If a professional’s failure to uphold their industry’s standard of care caused you to sustain injuries in an accident, you may be entitled to compensation. Our professional negligence lawyers serving Cape Breton have a history of representing injured members of the local community, and representing their best interests throughout civil litigation.
