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 Red Diamond Energy Services, Inc. in Big Lake, Texas

DATE: 03/12/20

The injured employee was overseeing that the rod connections were going well. A work crew was coming out of the well with 1.5-inch, fiberglass rods and double stands. They had just made the connection. An approximately 60-foot fiberglass rod unscrewed from the holding, slipped out of the transfer, fell out of the barrack, and hit the rig floor. It then bounced off the rig floor onto the ground and struck the injured employee on the left side of the head, knocking him unconscious.
