These glass window injuries occur all-too regularly at convenience stores, apartments, parking lots, and homes.
When negligence or defect are at issue, most states allow the injured to file legal claims against those they allege to be responsible for their accidents. Individuals and businesses that allow expense concerns to trump safety in neglecting to switch from plate glass windows to safety glass windows bear legal responsibility for those injured in storefronts, parking lots, apartments, and even homes.
