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: Compressed or pinched by shifting objects or equipment at FMC Technologies in Corpus Christi, Texas

DATE: 07/09/15

An employee was repairing a seal on a valve operator. He placed the drum cover over the actuator piston using an overhead crane and was manipulating the drum while operating the crane controls. While attempting to lower the drum the final 2 inches, he inadvertently pushed the wrong button on the hoist control, causing the drum to move upward. As a result, his left thumb was pinched between the base plate and drum cover. There was no amputation.
