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: Explosion, n.e.c. at Pyro Shows of Texas, Inc. in Fort Worth, Texas

DATE: 01/22/19

An employee was preparing to dispose of an old box of pyro-technics (known as stars), which required conducting a controlled burn. He dumped his box out onto the ground and a few stars rolled over to a hot area where a previous controlled burn had just occurred. The stars ignited, creating a chain reaction. The employee sustained first degree burns on the neck and face, as well as third degree burns on both arms, hands, and legs from the knee down.
