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: Struck against stationary object or equipment, n.e.c. at SNS Erectors in Kennedale, Texas

DATE: 12/11/19

An employee was in an aerial lift helping to erect precast tilt-up concrete panels. Approximately 5 minutes after the panel’s installation, workers adjusting the panel began to notice it shifting away from its structure. Immediately after noticing the shift, workers started clearing the area. Within seconds, the panel became displaced and completely fell. During the panel’s descent, it struck the left side of the employee’s aerial lift guardrail. The panel’s strike caused the aerial lift to rebound sporadically. The rebounding motions caused the injured employee to strike the left side of his abdomen against the aerial lift’s guardrails and platform. This caused him to break his fifth and sixth left-side ribs, and suffer a partially collapsed lung. He was hospitalized.
