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.

An employee was making adjustments on a flag indicator for a block unloader machine. The employee had climbed up onto a 12-foot-high block rack to access the flags and make the adjustments. The employee placed his right hand on the track as the unloader returned to gather another row of palletized bricks. The unloader then crushed his fingers, resulting in broken bones, cuts, and severed tendons in the right index finger, as well as cuts and a partially severed tendon to the right middle finger.
