Not all professional negligence claims involve personal injury. Certain jobs may come with a great deal of responsibility; the people who perform these jobs may have a significant impact on their clients’ lives outside their places of work. But not all jobs require professionals to come into close physical contact with their clients, nor do all jobs depend on the use of dangerous tools, implements, and materials. Depending on the nature of the work they do, a professional’s workplace errors may have no effect on their customers’ physical health and well-being.
However, some occupations are more dangerous than others. When a profession has the potential to adversely affect the physical safety of others, the people who perform it are often required to learn a specific skill-set, undergo rigorous safety training modules, and complete their tasks in accordance with the regulations governing their industry. When the professionals working in potentially dangerous occupations neglect their safety training or otherwise perform their duties in a negligent manner, their clients, customers, co-workers, employers, and even perfect strangers could be seriously injured.
Some jobs that may have a higher likelihood of injuring others by failing to meet their industry’s safety standards include:
- Police officers
- Dental hygienists
- Construction workers
- Massage therapists
- Doctors, nurses, physicians, and other healthcare providers
- And more
When these and other professionals working in potentially dangerous occupations fail to perform the duties of their job in accordance with their industry’s safety standards, the people they accidentally injure could incur substantial financial losses. These financial losses may be related to medical expenses, rehabilitative therapies, psychological counselling sessions, lifestyle adjustments, or other necessary costs related to their recovery. Some injured accident victims may even be unable to continue performing the duties of their own jobs as a result of the injuries they have sustained. These accident victims can incur even greater financial losses related to lost wages or reduced future earning capabilities.
