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 object falling from vehicle or machinery-other than vehicle part at TNT Crane & Rigging, Inc. in Corpus Christi, Texas

DATE: 03/23/17

A crane operator was setting up to perform work on the HVAC units on the roof. The rear outrigger penetrated the concrete surface which caused the crane to partially turn over in the direction of the counterweights. The pill ball swung back towards the crane cab. The crane operator exited the crane cab and struck the injured employee standing outside the crane cab knocking him to the ground. The injured employee sustained fractured lower vertebrae, a foot fracture and a head contusion.
