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 jump to lower level less than 6 feet at ACE Glass Construction Corporation in Little Rock, Arkansas

DATE: 10/05/16

Two employees were on a job site inspecting the area above the roof to see where the next storefront frame was going to be installed. They set up a ladder and the first employee began climbing while the second employee held the ladder for him.

The ladder was sitting on a deck made of composite material that was damp from rain. The first employee was over 4 feet off the ground when the bottom of the ladder began to slip away from the building. He jumped as the ladder began to fall; when he landed, he suffered a compound fracture in his right lower leg and dislocated his right shoulder. He was hospitalized.
