Sheet glass is very fragile and if it is dropped it can shatter and become a very serious issue, leaving you with repercussions for your health. Some common examples of injuries that you could receive as a result consist of lacerations, loss of limbs and even death in some instances, so it is important that the correct precautions are taken to ensure your safety.

In what situation might a claim be made?

If you are injured as a result of sheet glass, then not only can it be quite painful, but you could also be eligible to claim for compensation. There are several instances where you could look to make a claim from this situation, including:

·         Claims against a failure to provide adequate safety equipment

·         Claims if you are injured as a result of unsecured sheet 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 I be able to make a claim against?

Sheet glass can be very big and very heavy, so if it was to be left unsecure and you became injures as a result of it, then you could be entitled to make a claim for compensation. It is imperative that heavy and fragile equipment such as this is properly secured and safe, something that is the responsibility of the site manager. If you believe that they have failed in this duty, then you could make a claim against them for putting your health at risk. Making a claim could be your best option after suffering an injury in the workplace, as it could help you with your medical fees and also help you recoup any income you have missed out on.
