Certain jobs are more dangerous than others. Depending on the nature of a person’s occupation, they may be beholden to certain industry standards, safety regulations, or other rules governing the way in which their duties are completed. Most of these jobs require specific safety training. By learning the necessary skills required to perform their duties safely, professionals essentially reduce the risk of causing their customers, co-workers, or other members of the community physical harm.
Workplace errors do happen, though. And, depending on their occupation and the requirements of their job, if a professional makes a mistake in their workplace, serious injuries can occur as a result. If a professional neglects their training, practices their trade in an unsafe manner, or fails to comply with their industry’s standards or governing rules, unsuspecting people can be severely injured, or even killed.
Most workplace accidents do not result in injuries or deaths. Certain occupations, though, have a higher likelihood of causing injurious accidents as a result of professional negligence. Some occupations that may have a higher probability of causing other people physical harm include:
- Police officers
- Dental hygienists
- Construction workers
- Massage therapists
- Doctors, nurses, physicians, and other healthcare providers (through Medical Malpractice claims)
- And more
When customers seek out the services of a professional and hire them to do a job, they do not expect to sustain physical injuries as a result of that professional’s negligence. Similarly, no one expects that the unchecked negligence of a professional will be responsible for injury-causing accidents years after their jobs have been completed. However, a professional’s failure to perform their job in accordance with their industry’s safety standards can have adverse effects on both customers and strangers who are indirectly impacted by their negligence. For example, if a construction worker fails to comply with safe building practices and as a result, after the job is completed, an occupant of that building is injured, their professional negligence may be to blame.
