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: Pedestrian struck by forward-moving vehicle in work zone at AWP, Inc. in Zavalla, Texas

DATE: 01/15/20

An employee was setting up a lane closure. A Truck Mounted Attenuator (TMA) was stationed in the roadway with the crash cushion in the downward position. The arrow board was mounted on the TMA in the upward position with the arrow activated instructing the traffic to move over. The pilot vehicle with a trailer attached was approximately 102 feet in front of the TMA. The employee was between the pilot vehicle and the TMA, standing on the berm of the road with one foot on the berm and one foot on the fog line. A motorist went around the TMA and then took evasive action, came back across the lane, and struck the employee. The employee was hospitalized with broken ribs, a broken leg, and a head injury.
