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 or equipment, unspecified at Forbes Energy Services, LLC in Ledbetter, Texas

DATE: 02/12/20

Employees at an oil rig were breaking down its blowout preventers. After removing the preventers from the wellhead, they put a wooden board on the ground to set the preventer on and keep it from getting muddy. When one employee unhooked his tagline from a preventer, the preventer shifted and the locking stem on its top struck the top of the employee’s left boot. He suffered a laceration to the foot and two broken toes.
