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, unspecified at George McKenna Electrical Contractors, Inc. in Frisco, Texas

DATE: 12/27/17

An employee was installing circuits in an office attic. During the work, he went up and down a ladder carrying tools and materials. A different employee needed access to the attic, so he folded the bottom of the ladder. The injured employee did not notice the ladder was folded and began to descend it. He then fell to the concrete ground and fractured his hip.
