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: Fall on same level, n.e.c. at Speedway Erection Service Company, Inc. in San Antonio, Texas

DATE: 12/27/16

An employee was walking alongside a forklift moving decking. He was wearing a harness because he would eventually have to go up to an elevated position. The lanyard from the harness became caught on a pipe, causing the employee to fall, which then caused the load to shift. Decking sheets then pinned the employee’s left hand between a column and the sheets, injuring his ring finger.
