Shelter-in-place issued for all of Deer Park, TX after plant fire breaks out

Deer Park, Texas has been issued a shelter-in-place at 8:58 a.m. after a fire broke out in a chemical plant. The International Terminals Company's plant has around 13.1 million barrels of storage on site and first responders have indicated that the fire has begun to spread.

The facility located on Independance Parkway, just north of Highway 225, in La Porte,TX has been on fire for hours and is still not under control. It's unclear at this time if there have been any casualties or how long until this plant fire is under control. The tanks in question could be storing extremely volatile chemicals including various fuels and distilates. This leaves an extremely dangerous situation for all of those involved. ITC has had two formal violations of the Clean Air Act in the past five years but at this time, the cause of the fire is unconfirmed.

  1. 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.
