    Compensation for professional glazier accidents

    Working as a glazier, there is always the potential for professional glazier accidents to occur, but most accidents can be prevented by paying attention to health and safety at work. For example, a fall from a defective ladder could be avoided if your employer ensures that equipment they provide you with is regularly checked and safe to use.

    However professional glazier accidents do still happen, and if you can prove that somebody else, such as your employer, is liable for your injuries, you could make a personal injury claim. It doesn’t matter whether you are an employee or self-employed contractor, Accident Advice Helpline can help you get the compensation you deserve, on a 100% no win, no fee* basis.

    Glazier accidents – what’s the worst that could happen?

    Working with any kind of glass poses risks, and most of us imagine a glazier to work with small panes of glass for domestic windows. But huge, commercial windows that require double or triple glazing can consist of panes that weigh several tonnes.

    Dropping these at ground level or from height could cause serious, life-threatening injuries or even a fatality. Whether you are the glazier working at height to install a window or are waiting below to assist, you could be seriously injured if a pane of glass shatters or falls.

    Defective ladders and safety equipment are a leading cause of accidents when working at heights, but scaffolding collapses could also lead to injuries. It could be that the glass you are installing is faulty, or the tools you’re using might be inadequate.

    Lack of proper training could put you at risk of being injured too. Injuries such as severe lacerations, broken bones, head injuries, spinal injuries and amputations could all occur if you are involved in a glazier accident at work.

    What happens next?

    After you have contacted Accident Advice Helpline, we’ll normally ask to see a medical report which details your injuries. This will help our professional personal injury lawyers to work out your settlement and we’ll also take into account any loss of earnings or other expenses you have incurred.

    Most personal injury claims can be settled out of court, but if you do need to go to court, your personal injury lawyer will support you every step of the way. You could receive a substantial settlement if you have suffered life-changing injuries. Give Accident Advice Helpline a call on 0800 689 0500 and find out more today.
