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 Advanced Mustang Energy Services LP in Lamesa, Texas
The injured employee parked the vacuum truck on the SW end of the pulling unit. Another employee used the winch line on the pulling unit to grab a pipe. He wrapped the winch line around the vacuum truck’s bumper tow pin and back up around the pipe to just below half-way up the pipe. The pipe began to bow in the middle. The pipe gave way and hit the injured employee on the left side, stomach, and back knocking the employee to the ground.
