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.

DATE: 08/17/20

An employee was guiding a steel stair suspended from a crane hook into place to be connected with bolts. He used his sleever bar to guide and make sure the stair riser cleared the opening in the steel, but the top stair riser got hung up on the support beam. He pushed the stair riser with his foot. A clip angle on the stair got caught on the employee’s pant leg and the stair swung back and caught the employee’s right leg between the stair and the steel support beam. The leg was fractured above the ankle and required surgery.
