Claiming compensation for glass factory injuries

If you have had an accident in the workplace which you believe could have been prevented, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. Working in a glass factory poses quite a serious threat to your health; such is the damage that glass can do to you if you are involved in an incident. Common injuries that you could receive include lacerations, loss of limbs and even death in certain cases, so it is important that you are protected at all times.

It is the role of your manager to uphold health and safety regulations at all time, so if they have failed to provide you with appropriate safety equipment then a claim could be taken out against them for negligence. Safety items such as gloves, overalls and goggles musty be provided, while appropriate signposting should be on display at all times to reduce the risk of injury.

Common causes of glass related claims

If you are injured at work as a result of a glass related accident, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. There are a number of common injuries which can occur when working with glass, including:

·         Claims against facial injuries suffered

·         Claims if you are injured when working with glass

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of falling sheet glass

·         Claims if you have lost a limb as a result of falling/broken sheet glass

·         Failure to provide adequate safety equipment such as gloves, goggles and overalls

Who might be at fault in this situation?

If you believe that you have been injured in the workplace and have suffered from glass related injuries, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation. If your health has been put at risk where it could have been avoided, then you shouldn’t have to suffer the consequences in silence – making a claim could be a huge benefit to you and it could help you with any financial issues you have incurred as a result.  In general, a claim of this nature could be either directed at a manager who has inadequately provided this equipment, a co-worker who has been negligent, or the company for failing to adequately signpost the area.
