Nick Stone and Ashley Emes were operating at a depot managed by Pilkington UK in Bristol when an overloaded trolley full of glass panes weighing some 1,780 kilograms fell on them as they attempted to move it.
During the incident - which occurred in June 2010 - Mr Emes sustained a broken leg and required 72 stitches, while his colleague suffered serious cuts and bruising as well as tendon damage.
Mr Stone returned to work some six months after the accident, but Mr Emes has yet to do so due to ongoing complications with his recovery.
A case heard at Bristol Magistrates' Court resulted in Pilkington - a global firm with more than 28,000 employees - admitting breaching health and safety legislation, meaning the pair may be eligible for damages.
