  • Expert Witness & Investigation of Glass Injury

    Each year hundreds of injuries occur when glass breaks. Glass injuries can be fatal. Glass injuries can occur with window glass, storefront glass, mirrors, shower doors and tub enclosures. We utilize our extensive experience as a glazing contractor/window & glass consultant to determine the cause or multiple causes of glass injuries.

    Here is what we do:

    • Check the prevailing building codes with regards to the need for safety glazing
    • Check the prevailing building codes with regards to the need for limited sash opening devices
    • Check the prevailing building codes with regards to compliance with wind load requirements
    • Check the prevailing building codes with regards to compliance with hurricane or blast requirements
    • Inspect the site for factors that might have contributed to the glass breakage
    • Inspect the site for level of maintenence
    • Review the history of the building with regard to glass replacement
    • Survey, quantify and identify contributing variables
    • Destructive testing of glass for impact
    • Collect detailed measurements of glass, hardware and other involved objects
    • Issue easy to understand yet technically supportable reports which are highly illustrated and persuasive
