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 falling object or equipment, n.e.c. at C & C Oilfield Services, LLC in Orla, Texas

DATE: 09/08/18

The injured employee was helping a welder while a nearby trackhoe operator had a 4′ pipe joint hooked up to the trackhoe with a strap. The operator leaned forward to adjust his side mirror and as he sat back down, his shirt was caught on the joystick, which caused the machine to move the 4′ pipe forward. It struck the 6′ main line pipe, which in turn fell off the cones and landed on the injured employee’s legs. Both legs were broken and she was hospitalized.
