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 dislodged flying object, particle at Turner Industries Group in Paris, Tx

DATE: 08/01/20

An employee had just placed some timbers on a pipe stack. As he was moving away, a 16-inch by 10-foot pipe that was being stacked rolled onto the timbers past the intended placement. This caused the timbers to catapult over the pipe. One of the two timbers struck the employee on the right side as it was coming down, knocking him to the ground. He suffered fractures to the right wrist, nose, face, and skull on the right side. He was hospitalized.
