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: Other fall to lower level less than 6 feet at Coreslab Structures, Texas Inc. in Cedar Park, Texas
An employee was in the process of cleaning and setting a 20′ steel siderail for a mold while standing on top of the 2.5′ high mold. The employee stuck a piece of rebar into a hole of the mold to adjust the siderail’s position in the mold. The employee pulled on the rebar and it came out of the hole, causing the employee to fall to the ground and fracture the right femur.
