When the residents of New Waterford seek out the services of a professional, they expect them to perform their duties efficiently and in a safe manner. Unfortunately, sometimes professionals deliver their services in a negligent fashion. Depending on the nature of their occupation, errors on the job could cause unsuspecting customers to sustain serious injuries. 

If a professional’s job requires the use of dangerous materials or tools, or if it involves close physical contact with other people, they may have a higher likelihood of accidentally injuring someone else as a result of wrongful conduct on the job. Some professions are more dangerous than others, and negligence in their workplaces could have harsher repercussions for the victims of their wrongful actions. Examples of these professions 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

People who perform jobs that could potentially injure their customers, clients, co-workers, and other community members are generally required to abide by industry standards of service and comply with safety regulations governing their field. If they neglect their safety training or fail to comply with their industry’s regulations, others could be seriously injured as a result of their wrongful behaviour. If so, the at-fault professional could be considered negligent. 

The injured victims of a professional’s negligence may feel the adverse effects of their injuries physically, psychologically, and financially. The process of recovering from serious injuries can be long, painful, emotionally challenging, and expensive. Due to the disheartening and isolating nature of sustaining severe injuries, accident victims often develop additional disabling conditions in the form of serious mental health issues. Furthermore, if the injuries they have sustained prevent them from performing the duties of their own job, the injured victims of a professional’s negligence may develop legitimate, overwhelming anxieties over their financial circumstances. Injured accident victims who can no longer work often struggle to afford their necessary costs of medical care in addition to their regular costs of living. 

If someone else’s failure to perform their job according to their industry’s safety standards caused you to sustain compensable injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. Our professional negligence lawyers serving New Waterford may be able to help you pursue a civil claim against the negligent professional to recover damages you have sustained as well as damages you will sustain in the future. These damages may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs

  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
