Every day, Dartmouth residents put their safety and physical well-being in the hands of professionals whose practices are regulated by industry standards, laws, and other governing bodies. Even if we do not actively seek out the services of a professional, the industry standards regulating someone else’s work greatly impacts our daily lives. 

For example, the buildings we live in are designed and constructed by professionals whose quality of work must comply with a set of standards to keep the people inside that building safe from harm. If an architect or construction worker is not qualified to perform their job, or if they fail to uphold the regulations governing their industry, the building could collapse and seriously injure the people inside it.

In other cases, Dartmouth residents may employ the services of professionals. When doing so, they expect these professionals will be properly qualified to perform the services they provide, and that they will adhere to the rules and regulations that govern their industry. If these professionals fail to meet their industry’s standards, depending on their field of employment, their professional negligence can cause the person they are serving to sustain physical injuries. 

Professional negligence may not always lead to physical injuries. However, certain occupations are more hazardous than others. Some professionals that could severely harm the very people they were employed to serve include:  

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

When professionals fail to conduct themselves in accordance with their occupation’s standards of practice and injuries occur as a result, these professionals may be liable for damages caused by their negligence. 

Everyone makes mistakes from time to time. No matter what their occupation is and despite their degree of proficiency, professionals can make minor errors that affect their job performance and their clients’ experience. However, no one should ever sustain physical trauma and incur financial losses because of a professional’s negligence. If a professional’s failure to uphold the standards regulating their industry caused you to sustain serious physical injuries, our professional negligence lawyers with experience in Dartmouth may be able to help you pursue a civil claim for damages.
