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: Contact with objects and equipment, unspecified at PAT Tank in Port Arthur, Texas

DATE: 07/17/18

An employee was helping to move rafters to build a cone on a tank. One of the rafters was hooked onto a tractor. When the employee went to pull the rafter, the joint of the rafter caught the rafter below it, which then slid and put the employee in a pinch point and the line of fire. As a result, the employee broke two bones above her left ankle (tibia and fibula) and three bones in her left foot.
