Certain jobs require specific skill-sets. Some jobs require professionals to be in close proximity to their clients or to engage in physical contact. The tasks of their job may involve using potentially dangerous tools or implements which could potentially harm others if not used safely. Not all jobs have the potential to place other people in harm’s way. Occupations that could possibly cause another person to be physically injured often require extensive, industry-specific safety training.
When certain professionals neglect their safety training, engage in reckless or unsafe behaviour, violate the rules governing their occupation, or otherwise fail to provide a level of service in keeping with their industry’s standards, their clients, customers, and even perfect strangers could be seriously injured as a result. When this happens, the at-fault professionals whose wrongful conduct caused someone else to be injured could be considered negligent. If so, they may be responsible for financially compensating the injured party for damages they have incurred as a result of their wrongful actions.
Of course, not all instances of professional negligence end in compensable injuries. For example, the negligence of an accountant may cause their client to incur financial losses, but because of the nature of their job, any errors they make will likely not cause the people they serve physical harm.
That said, the negligence of certain professionals could cause unsuspecting Edmundston residents a great deal of physical harm. Jobs that could potentially hurt people physically if performed in a negligent manner include:
- Police officers
- Dental hygienists
- Construction workers
- Massage therapists
- Doctors, nurses, physicians, and other healthcare providers (through Medical Malpractice claims)
- And more
For the people injured by a professional’s negligence, the road to recovery can be long, challenging, and expensive. No one expects to be injured when they hire a professional to perform a service, nor do most people save sufficient funds to adequately recover from a medical emergency such as an unexpected severe injury.
