Arnold & Itkin LLP attorneys Kurt Arnold, Caj Boatright, Roland Christensen,
and Alison Baimbridge filed suit today against Phillips 66 on behalf of
a Louisiana man who was severely injured in a large plant explosion. The
incident occurred recently in Paradis, Louisiana—the plant fire
was so strong that it
melted vehicles nearby and burned for days. Arnold & Itkin LLP’s client was severely
burned as a result.
As our industrial injury attorneys have often discovered, explosions don’t
just “happen” at most plants. Explosions are the result of
months and years of ignoring protocol, disregarding safety policies, and
failing to repair or maintain the facilities. It’s rare than an
explosion is a surprise—in many plants, they’re practically
an inevitability. It’s an employer’s responsibility to create
a culture of safety, to implement the most effective ways to keep workers
safe from harm.
Arnold & Itkin LLP is proud to represent employees and contractors
that are injured in unfortunate and avoidable explosions and fires. Our
experience with plant explosions has allowed us to help countless workers
hold managers and employers accountable for negligence, recklessness,
and harmful practices.
Our case was filed in Harris County, Texas.
