Though it may not be immediately apparent, the standards regulating another person’s profession often have significant impacts on our daily lives. For example, thanks to the safety measures implemented by the architects who designed our homes and the construction workers who built them, the structures that house our family members remain upright and sturdy in all conditions.
Taking a close look at the world around you can help you to appreciate just how intricately our personal safety is connected to the regulatory standards of professionals in different industries. In Halifax, every day we put our health and physical well-being in the hands of professionals who, we hope, are qualified to perform their jobs.
When people employed in professions that are regulated by laws, governing bodies, or other professional standards fail to adequately fulfill their duties, the results can be catastrophic. Depending on their field of employment, a person’s professional negligence can severely harm the very people they were employed to serve.
If a professional fails to conduct themselves in accordance with their profession’s standards of practice and injuries occur as a result, these professionals may be liable for damages caused by their negligence. Some professions that may be the subject of a professional negligence injury claim include:
- Police officers
- Dental hygienists
- Massage therapists
- Doctors, nurses, physicians, and other healthcare providers (through Medical Malpractice claims)
- And more
