A woman who suffered facial injuries when she walked into a clear glass door at work has received compensation.
Slater and Gordon Solicitor: Shelley Barker is a Personal Injury Lawyer at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in Sheffield.
Settlement Value: Confidential
On the day of the incident, the client walked into a meeting room in her place of work.
The room had recently been refurbished and the doors had been replaced with panels of clear glass. There were no areas of frosting on the glass however, and nor were there any stickers or warnings of any kind to indicate when the door was closed.
As a result, the client, unaware that the door was closed, inadvertently walked into the glass and sustained facial injuries.
How Slater and Gordon helped: A claim was made alleging that the defendants had failed to follow the Building Regulations 2000, which state that any glass door within a workplace needs to be clearly defined on two levels so that it contrasts visually with the background seen through the panel.
Decision: After the defendants accepted liability, Slater and Gordon obtained medical evidence along with confirmation of losses and the claim was settled within seven months.
