Toronto Wired Glass Accident Lawyers
Proven trial lawyers ready to fight for your rights
The personal injury lawyers at Smitiuch Injury Law know that an accident that leaves victims seriously hurt can happen any time at any location. Sometimes, an accident occurs involving things in someone’s daily environment – things that they usually don’t think about. One example is wired glass.
Wired glass is regular glass with a layer of meshed wire embedded inside it. It is commonly used in doors and fire separations in schools and public buildings. It was developed to contain smoke and flames but still allow people to look through doors.
Herein lies the danger. When wired glass breaks, it is held together by the embedded wire thus retarding the spread of smoke and flames. However, the shattered glass and wire can grab or catch an arm or hand that has gone through the glass resulting in severe lacerations and potentially leading to permanent loss of dexterity and sensation.
Dedicated Toronto lawyers investigating wired glass claims
The injuries you experience might take weeks or months to heal, potentially affecting your ability to work and your overall quality of life. You may need surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. In the most severe cases, your injuries may stay with you for the rest of your life.
At Smitiuch Injury Law, our wired glass accident lawyers know a wired glass injury can happen in a school, a public building or athletic facility. Our team of professionals will take the time to establish the details of your accident and determine who might be at fault. For instance, a school board may be at fault for not replacing wired glass with an alternate safer solution, such as tempered or laminated glass products.
We also determine the total damages you suffered in a wired glass accident. These can include current and future medical expenses and lost income if you were unable to return to work right away. There may also be other damages, such as pain and suffering.
