When most people think of professional negligence, they usually do not associate the term with personal injury claims. That is because, in many cases, a professional’s wrongful conduct may not cause their clients, co-workers, or others to sustain real physical harm. For instance, an accountant’s errors could cost a client their finances, but the professional’s wrongful conduct does not have a direct effect on their client’s physical well-being. 

That said, certain professions are, by their very nature, more dangerous than others. Mistakes made while carrying out the duties of certain jobs could lead to severe injuries or even fatalities. Some examples of occupations that may be more likely to injure somebody if the professional providing their services does so in a negligent manner 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 that require professionals to come into close physical contact with their clients and jobs that involve the use of dangerous materials, tools, or implements have narrower margins of error than other, more mundane occupations. These potentially hazardous occupations often require the people who work in these fields to undergo substantial safety training to help them reduce the risk of injurious accidents on the job.

If a professional neglects their safety training, fails to deliver service in keeping with their industry’s standards, or disregards the rules governing their occupation, the very clients or customers that hired them could be severely injured. In these instances, the negligent professionals responsible for injuring another person could be liable for damages incurred by the injured party. 

When the wrongful actions of a negligent professional injures an unsuspecting client, customer, co-worker, or other community member, the injured accident victim could feel the adverse effects of their misconduct physically, psychologically, and financially. This is especially true of injured victims whose newly acquired medical conditions prevent them from performing the duties of their own jobs. In these cases, in addition to the physical trauma they have endured, injured victims of a professional’s negligence who are unable to earn their regular wages may develop significant anxieties over their abilities to continue supporting themselves and their families. 

Professionals who have failed to deliver their services in a safe, responsible manner in keeping with their industry-specific safety protocols should be held accountable for their actions. If someone else’s wrongful conduct caused you to sustain physical injuries and financial losses, you may be entitled to compensation.
