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 ZJ Falcon LP in Andrews, Texas

A crew was attempting to hang a metal horse head on a pumpjack while the injured employee was sitting on a 12-inch beam (12 feet off ground). As the crew was lowering the head, it fell out of its saddle and smashed the employee’s left arm, which became very swollen and possibly fractured.
