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 by discharged object or substance at Jaguar Energy Services, LLC in Coushatta, Louisiana

DATE: 08/02/19

An employee was closing a 2-inch ball valve on a test separator to make repairs to the down side of a low-pressure sand knockout. The employee was about 2 to 3 feet from the ball valve as he closed it; when he got the valve three-quarters closed, the bell reducer pipe on the back side of the ball valve separated in two, releasing pressure in the test separator. The employee suffered sand blast burns to the left side of his body, a broken arm, a sprained ankle, a fractured back vertebra, and a head laceration.
