Residents of Sydney often rely on skilled professionals to provide specific services. Regardless of the industry in which they work, professionals rely on the training they have completed, the skillsets they have cultivated, and the industry-specific knowledge they have acquired in order to complete the duties of their jobs in accordance with the standards of their industry. 

Regardless of their profession, everybody makes mistakes. However, most professional errors do not lead to physical injuries. That said, depending on the nature of a person’s job, workplace errors may have severe repercussions for the clients they serve, or the people who indirectly rely on services a professional has provided. In fact, if a professional fails to perform their duties in a responsible manner, fatal accidents can occur. 

Certain professionals have a higher likelihood of being responsible for accidents causing injuries or death. If the nature of a profession requires someone to come into close physical contact with their client or another individual, accidents on the job can easily lead to physical injuries. Similarly, professionals that work with heavy machinery or other potentially dangerous materials could inadvertently injure complete strangers with no connection to them, personally or professionally. 

Examples of occupations that may have a higher likelihood of causing injurious accidents as a result of professional negligence include:

  • Police officers
  • Dentists
  • Dental hygienists 
  • Architects 
  • Engineers
  • Builders
  • Construction workers
  • Pharmacists
  • 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 complete a task, 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, someone’s failure to perform their job in accordance with industry-specific safety standards can substantially impact the lives and livelihoods of people who hire certain professionals, and those who are indirectly affected by their negligence. 

Typically, professionals employed in a potentially dangerous field are required to undergo industry-specific safety training in order to reduce the likelihood of injuring the very people hiring them to perform a service. If a professional neglects their training, lacks sufficient experience, or otherwise fails to perform the duties of their occupation in accordance with the rules regulating their industry, unsuspecting people can be seriously injured.
