Not all professional negligence claims involve personal injury. The wrongful actions of certain professionals could have profound impacts on the lives of their clients, but they may not necessarily cause them to be physically injured. An accountant handling a person’s finances, for example, could engage in wrongful conduct resulting in their client’s loss of income, however their professional negligence will most likely not cause them to sustain physical injuries. 

That said, certain professions are, by their very nature, more dangerous than others. Some jobs require the use of tools, implements, or materials that, if handled incorrectly, could result in another person sustaining serious injuries. Certain occupations require their practitioners to come into close physical contact with the people they serve. When these jobs are performed in an unsafe manner, the people who have hired professionals to provide their specialized services could be physically harmed. 

Some professionals whose wrongful conduct on the job may be more likely to injure clients, co-workers, and other community members include: 

  • Police officers
  • Dentists
  • Dental hygienists 
  • Architects 
  • Engineers
  • Builders
  • Construction workers
  • Pharmacists
  • Massage therapists
  • Personal trainers
  • Doctors, nurses, physicians, and other healthcare providers 
  • And more

Jobs with a higher potential for causing physical injuries typically require their practitioners to undergo safety training sessions. Often, these kinds of jobs require industry-specific vocational training where the people studying to work in potentially dangerous fields learn about their industry’s safety standards and other rules governing their occupation. If a professional fails to comply with their industry’s safety standards and practices and performs their job in a negligent manner, their customers and other people could be seriously injured. 

The injured victims of a professional’s negligence often incur substantial financial losses related to medical expenses, rehabilitative therapies, psychological counselling, lifestyle adjustments, and other necessary costs related to their recovery. If the injuries they have sustained prevent accident victims from completing the tasks associated with their own occupations, they may sustain financial losses related to lost wages, and even a reduced future earning capacity.
