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 setting up a press brake and changing from a short die to a long die. While he was holding the lower die partway into position, the press brake was activated via the foot pedal. The lower die then slid fully into position, taking his hand with it. The press brake moved to the setup position and crushed his left hand, breaking his middle finger and dislocating his index finger. He was hospitalized and had surgery.
