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 through surface or existing opening, unspecified at CAM Field Solutions, LLC in Mont Belvieu, Texas

DATE: 02/06/18

An employee was helping an operator close a barbed wire gap. The gap was stretched across some digging mats (placed that morning) on a temporary crossing that was used to contain cattle. While attempting to close the gap, he walked backwards on the construction mats and stepped in a hole between them. He then fell backwards, landing on his right hip. The mats were uneven and were elevated right where he landed. He was hospitalized with a broken right hip/femur, requiring surgery.
