Posted By Doan Law Firm || 19-May-2018

Fire at Kuraray Specialty Chemical Plant

In 2013, Kuraray's Specialty Chemical division broke ground on a 40,000 ton chemical plant in La Porte, TX. This plant, just outside of Pasadena, TX injured at least 20 people this morning when a fire broke out at 10:30 in the morning. The authorities responded and got the blaze under control which resulted in 20 people being sent to nearby hospitals.

All employees on site have been accounted for and those who were injured are being treated. The reported cause of the fire was a valve that exploded during normal opperations. There was no secondary fire that resulted from the accident and officials at Kuraray say there is no ongoing threat to the public.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
