This OSHA Injury Report was compiled directly from data that is publicly available from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). OSHA Injury Reports can be helpful in understanding the types of workplace injury claims involving defective products or malfunctioning equipment in the workplace. 

The manufacturers of defective equipment or machinery resulting in a worker injury may be found to be negligent and liable for damages in a separate civil lawsuit. You may be able to recover damages on top of a workers’ comp claim if injured in a job accident caused, in part, by a third party. These third party personal injury cases should be given responsible legal guidance.

Trammell Piazza Law Firm claims no responsibility for any errors or inconsistencies in OSHA’s data.

Report: Caught in or compressed by equipment or objects, unspecified at Long Wolf Well Servicing LLC in Rankin, Texas

DATE: 07/06/18

A Lone Star Wolf Service employee was testing tubing going into a well when he began helping an operator who was lowering testing bars and pressuring them up for testing. After a couple of repetition runs of inserting the testing gun into the testing bar eye and hydrotesting the tube, the operator lowered the bars a bit more to have a complete seal. At the time, the injured employee’s hand was on the testing gun handles, and his right index finger was pinched between the wiper cup and the testing pan. He was hospitalized.
