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 GULF STREAM MARINE in Houston, Texas

DATE: 03/14/20

An employee was working inside a gondola rail car, rigging bundles of steel rebar for hoisting out of the car. During a partial breakout lift (hoisting about 2 feet to gain access for slinging), a nylon strap parted under the 1,100-2,200-pound load, which fell back into the car and struck the employee. The employee suffered a broken femur and collarbone.
