Beaumont Plant Explosion Lawyer Our Goal: Winning & Winning Big

Beaumont Plant Explosion Lawyer

The Doan Law Firm represents all types of plant explosion injuries

A dozen workers were injured when an explosion ripped an ExxonMobile plant located in Beaumont, Texas. The facility makes petrochemicals of different types.

Thee workers sustained severe burns and were in critical condition following the Beaumont plant explosion. The blast occurred mid-morning. All 12 injured people were taken to area hospitals.

The exact cause of the accident is under investigation. Officials did note that the explosion occurred in a part of the facility known as a processing area. The area was not in operation at the time of the explosion, being down for maintenance.

Officials also noted that the blaze following the blast was quickly extinguished. The company and investigators indicated that a complete investigation of the explosion had commenced to pin down the cause of the explosion.

Managers of the facility stated that events like the Beaumont plant explosion were rare. Management maintained that the plant has a solid safety record.

Who is Responsible for the Beaumont Plant Explosion?

As is the case with many industrial accidents like the Beaumont plant explosion, multiple parties may be found to be responsible for an accident. In this case, the petrochemical plant is owned by ExxonMobile, which makes that mammoth company a key party likely to be deemed responsible for the accident.

With that said, culpability is not likely to begin and end with ExxonMobile. There were employees on site, specifically involved in the maintenance process where the explosion occurred, that work for a trio of other companies. These companies are KT Maintenance, Signature Industrial Services, and Brock Services, LLC. One or all of these enterprises might ultimately be deemed to have contributed to the explosion that caused injuries to a dozen workers on site.

Accidents Prior to Beaumont Plant Explosion

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration, OSHA, reported that KT Maintenance, Signature Industrial Services, and Brock Services, LLC. have no prior safety issues. The same cannot be said at ExxonMobile. This includes safety issues at the very plant where the explosion discussed here occurred.

About seven years ago, at this very plant, a dangerous release of harmful pollutants occurred. Over 43,000 pounds of dangerous contaminants were released into the air. One of these was a toxic gas. There have been other incidents at this plant as well as at other ExxonMobile facilities in the Lone Star State.

Compensation in a Chemical Plant Explosion Case

Possible compensation in a chemical plant explosion case depends largely on the events surrounding the incident and the nature and extent of injuries sustained by a victim of the blast.

With that duly noted, a common array of losses for which a skilled chemical plant explosion lawyer seeks compensation includes:

  • medical bills
  • permant injuries or disability
  • pain and suffering
  • lost income
  • mental anguish and emotional distress

A tenacious chemical plant accident lawyer seeks compensation for a client beyond immediate losses. For example, following the Beaumont plant explosion, an injured worker is likely to need ongoing medical care and treatment. A worker in this situation may face chronic pain for an indefinite period of time. In addition, a worker injured in the Beaumont plant explosion may not be able to return to work any time soon. All of these represent the types of injuries, damages, and losses for which a Texas personal injury lawyer, like a member of the legal team at The Doan Law Firm, seeks financial recovery for a client injured by the negligence of another party.
