Houston Chemical Plant Accidents are Common

Texas is the top crude oil and natural gas manufacturing state in the country. Houston is home to some of the largest petrochemical facilities in the world, accounting for over 42% of the nation’s base petrochemical capacity. These facilities include:

Shell Deer Park Refinery

Marathon Petroleum Refinery

LyondellBasell Channelview Refinery

ExxonMobil Baytown

Chevron Philips

Motiva Port Arthur

Types of Petrochemical Accidents

Explosions & Fires

Texas is home to some of the worst chemical plant and refinery explosions in American history. Despite such devastation, corporate negligence continuously leads to chemical plant explosions and fires, leaving countless individuals critically injured with no way to provide for their families.

Burn Injuries

Chemical and electrical burns are the most common types of burn injuries in the petrochemical industry and can leave victims with catastrophic financial, physical, and psychological trauma. These injuries typically require extensive treatment at specialized burn centers. Despite the use of powerful painkillers, the physical pain and suffering is, at times, almost unbearable.

Toxic Chemical Inhalation

Uncontrolled chemical releases are rampant among industrial workplaces. Three Houston-area chemical leaks occurred in July 2021 alone, resulting in the deaths of two employees, hospitalization of 30, and the evacuation of thousands. Residents living within a 10 mile radius of a petrochemical facility are 56% more likely to develop leukemia than those outside of that radius.

Heavy Machinery Equipment Failure

Faulty or poorly maintained equipment can result in a worker being struck by an object, electrocuted, crushed, or caught in heavy machinery.

I would like to thank Williams Hart & Boundas for showing compassion to our sister. She is the sole breadwinner in her house and when she got into a terrible accident that sent her to the hospital for weeks recently, they helped her with her legal issues at no cost. This shows that they are a great neighbor to the community they serve. They are a great example of how we all should behave. Thank you.
