Saint John Professional Negligence Lawyer

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 Saint John professional fails to conduct themselves in accordance with their occupation’s standards of practice, people can get hurt.

Many occupations are regulated by industry standards, governing bodies, or other laws. These regulations often help to ensure the safety of those who benefit from the services provided by professionals engaged in these occupations, either directly or indirectly.

When Saint John residents hire a professional or visit their place of business to take advantage of their services, they expect them to perform their jobs according to their trade’s regulations or, more importantly, in a manner which will not cause their clients any physical harm. However, hired professionals are not always properly certified or otherwise qualified to perform the tasks of their jobs to the high standards of their occupation.

Depending on their occupation, if a professional does not perform their job adequately and according to their industry’s safety standards, they could cause their clients to sustain serious injuries. Although professional negligence may not always lead to physical injuries, certain occupations are more dangerous than others.

Some professionals that might 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

Professionals hired to do a job could accidentally injure their clients, if they do not meet their industry’s standards of care. However, certain Saint John residents may also be the indirect victims of professional negligence, in many cases, without even knowing it.

For example, if the construction workers hired to complete an architectural project failed to meet their industry’s standards of care and performed their jobs negligently, unsuspecting people visiting that architectural project may be at risk of sustaining injuries in an accident.

Saint John residents who have sustained injuries because of a professional’s failure to perform their jobs in accordance with the governing bodies regulating their industry may be eligible to pursue a civil claim against the at-fault party. By doing so, they may be able to recover damages they incurred as a result of the professional’s negligence.

If you are eligible to file a lawsuit, our professional negligence lawyers serving Saint John may be able to help you recover economic and non-economic damages, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation costs
  • Ongoing medical care/in-home care
  • Lost wages due to missed work
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Adjusted living expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • And possibly more
