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: Nonroadway collision with object other than vehicle, n.e.c. at William S. Nadler, Jr., Inc. in Belle Rose, Louisiana

DATE: 06/14/18

An employee was cutting grass behind the shop using a rotary mower attached to the back of a tractor. He was passing a rack that had a sputter bar when a tractor part became hooked on a pad-eye on the sputter bar, causing the rack to be pulled down onto the employee. The rack landed on his back and pinned him against the tractor steering wheel. Another employee ran over and cut the tractor off. The employee suffered six cracked ribs, a punctured lung, and broken vertebrae, requiring hospitalization.
