Depending on their occupation, the work of professionals in the province is often regulated by industry standards, laws, and other governing bodies. These regulatory bodies help to ensure the safety of people who employ those professionals, or otherwise rely on their labour.

Moncton residents may benefit from these laws and industry standards indirectly, and without ever really noticing it. For example, the professionals who designed and constructed the bridges in our province presumably did so according to the rules regulating their trade. Had the engineers and construction workers who built these structures not adhered to industry standards of practice, the people who use these bridges on a regular basis would be in great danger. However, when followed correctly, the rules governing industries could prevent serious accidents from occurring in the future.

Professional negligence can also directly impact the lives of clients who hired the service provider. In Moncton, when people seek out the services of a professional, they expect them to perform their jobs safely and according to their trade’s regulations. Unfortunately, sometimes hired professionals are not adequately qualified to carry out the duties of their job in accordance with their industry’s standards of care. When this happens, depending on their occupation, negligent professionals could cause their clients to sustain serious injuries. 

No one should ever sustain physical injuries or suffer financial losses because of a professional’s negligence. However, depending on the nature of their job, if a professional fails to conduct themselves in accordance with their occupation’s standards of practice, people can get hurt. 

Professional negligence may not always lead to physical injuries. However, certain occupations are more hazardous than others. Some professionals that could seriously injure the 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 injuries occur because of a professional’s failure to conduct their business in accordance with their occupation’s standards of practice, these negligent professionals may be liable for damages caused by their wrongful conduct. 

If you were injured because of a professional’s failure to perform their job in accordance with the rules governing their occupation, our professional negligence lawyers serving Moncton may be able to help you file a civil claim against the at-fault party whose negligence caused you to sustain injuries.
