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.

On September 14, 2015, an employee was working from a ground level scaffold. The employee stepped on a section of plywood that was covering a steam pipe. Upon contact, the pipe sprayed hot water (198 degrees) onto the employee’s left foot. The employee was treated for second and third degree burns to his foot and released. The employee returned to work with restrictions. On September 22, 2015, at a follow-up appointment, the physician noted the foot was not healing. At approximately 8:00am, the employee was admitted to the hospital to have a skin graft done to his left foot.
