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: Part of occupants body caught between vehicle and other object in nonroadway transport incident at Academy Sports and Outdoors in Katy, Texas
An employee was operating a walkie pallet jack to pick up a load when she turned the pallet jack sharply. The pallet jack then increased speed and threw her into a support beam. She was pinned between the pallet jack and the beam, and as she attempted to get un-stuck, she accidentally hit the accelerator, causing the pallet jack to strike her again. She suffered a laceration to the right leg, pelvic fracture, and fracture to the L5 vertebra.
