preparation, hundreds of depositions, numerous motions successfully defeated,

$39.7 Million Verdict Won for Burn Injury Victim
Attorneys Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis recovered a $39.7 million verdict on behalf of a worker who was severely injured in a dust fire and explosion at a Texas plywood plant.
On April 26, 2014, a dust collection system, along with its related safety
systems, failed—leaving the baghouse of a Georgia-Pacific plywood
plant in Corrigan, TX vulnerable. When a fire ignited in the system, sparks
were sent through the ductwork, which the system failed to prevent from
entering the baghouse. An explosion and deflagration occurred, resulting
in a fire that engulfed our client who had been unknowingly standing nearby.
Our client suffered significant burn injuries in the blast; however, despite
the severity of his injuries, he worked to alert emergency services. He
was later transported to a Tier 1 burn unit in Houston, TX via life flight
helicopter—but only after he had confirmed that his co-workers had
been sent for treatment. At the time of the trial, he had already undergone
seven surgical procedures. He is projected to receive many more.
Attorneys Kyle Findley, Kala Sellers, and Adam Lewis took on the case and
fought to ensure that our client was properly compensated. We took the
case to trial, which lasted over a three week period. During that time,
our legal team fought to prove that the dust collection system, which
had been designed by Aircon, Inc., was unsafe and therefore failed to
meet industry standards. We also argued that the fire prevention system,
which had been designed and supplied by GreCon, Inc. had been installed
in an unsafe location.
After deliberating, the jury found that both of the defendants were negligent
for an unsafe design, as well as failing to warn the plant of the associated
hazards. Our client was awarded damages for medical expenses, loss of
earning capacity, disfigurement, physical impairment, physical pain, and
$18.5 Million Jury Verdict Granted in Second Williams Geismar Trial

The jury in our second trial against Williams Companies, Inc. on behalf
of our injured clients handed down a verdict of $18.5 million—a
collective number accounting for the compensation our four clients received.
Our clients were represented by Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley, and
Kala Sellers, three of the many dedicated and passionate attorneys on
our team. In total, we have won over $30 million in compensation in just
two trials against those responsible for our clients’ injuries sustained
from the Geismar explosion, and we will persist in earning more victims
these kinds of verdicts. In this particular case, we were able to also
prove fault in Sabic Petrochemical, a part owner of the plant at the time
of the explosion. Our team will continue to investigate parties responsible
and hold them accountable for our clients who have wrongfully suffered
depilating injury in this horrific event.
$15.4 Million Jury Verdict Won for Injured Workers from 2013 Williams Olefins Explosion
Our team secured a massive verdict for workers who were injured in a devastating explosion caused by negligence.
In a powerful victory for our clients, Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Kyle Findley,
and Kala Sellers won a verdict of $15,458,434.32 for our four clients,
all of whom were injured while working at a Williams Olefins plant in
Geismar. The plant was undergoing a $400 million expansion project, but
operations at the plant continued—despite numerous sources agreeing
that this would be incredibly risky and dangerous for the plant workers.
Rather than shut the plant down for a few months, the CEO and board of
directors ignored the safety recommendation and ordered operations to continue.
During the expansion project, a reboiler over-pressurized and exploded.
The blast could be seen for miles, and it injured our clients—4
workers who had to run for their lives and suffered physical and psychological
damage as a result. The parent company for the plant, Williams Companies,
Inc., blamed the incident on the holding company, Williams Olefins LLC.
Shifting the blame would limit their responsibility for the incident,
which would also limit the compensation that could be sought against them.
Our attorneys, who have vast experience with plant operations, sorted
through hundreds of thousands of documents to find that the pressure relief
valve on the reboiler was not opened.
Our attorneys found that numerous audits and safety warnings were issued
regarding the unopened valve, but the necessary repair was never made.
We also found evidence that demonstrated that the Defendants had “substantial
certainty” that an explosion would occur without repair. This certainty
helped our clients seek compensation beyond the limits imposed by workers’
compensation. Our firm also demonstrated that Williams Companies, Inc.
had control over plant operations and were the true employers of the plant’s
managers and workers.
During three weeks of trial, the Defendants attempted to shield themselves
with the statutory employer defense. They placed the blame on Williams
Olefins LLC, but the jury saw through their maneuver. In the end, the
Plaintiffs received an award judgment in their favor.
The jury placed the vast majority of the blame (95%) at the feet of Williams
Companies, Inc. Just 3% was placed with Williams Olefins LLC, but both
were found to have “substantial certainty” about the incident.
More importantly, the jury found that the plant managers were actually
employees of Williams Companies, not Williams Olefins LLC—which
soundly defeated their defense strategy.
Ultimately, our clients received the compensation they needed to recover.
Our clients won four separate awards for $9.4 million, $3.6 million, $360,000,
and $205,000. They have all received the support they need to heal physically
and emotionally, giving them the fresh start they need. The total award
included both the initial judgment ($13,679,933.53) with pre-judgment
interest added to it as well ($1,778,409.79).
Arnold & Itkin is proud to have helped these men get the compensation
they needed. We are also proud to be representing nearly 100 workers in
upcoming trials alongside Clayton, Fruge, and Ward. The case was filed
in Iberville Parish, Louisiana, and was presided over by the Honorable
$6.5 Million Reached for Two Men Exposed to Dangerous Chemicals
Attorneys Kurt Arnold, Caj Boatright, and Kala Sellers represented two contractors who were exposed to dangerous gas while working at a refinery. We negotiated a $6.5 million settlement.
Two contractors were severely injured after being exposed to dangerous
gas during work at a refinery plant. Despite the dangers of their exposure,

the two men. We helped them receive immediate medical care, where it was
determined that they had sustained severe injuries that required hospitalization.
We then went through an aggressive discovery process, taking more than
a dozen depositions and digging through all of the plant owner’s
documents. This helped us expose other similar incidents and a safety
culture problem at the company. We pushed for trial and reached a settlement
of $6.5 million just weeks before trial was set to begin.

treat. The scarring may never heal. When he called us, we immediately

knew their safety cage need repairs. WIth their negligence now a matter of
record, the company chose to settle with our client for what he needed

Kala Seller was able to secure a $6,400,000 settlement for man’s
family who had lost their father. As Attorney Caj Boatright obtained 10
depositions in an aggressive pursuit of discovery, the defendants were
sure that they had nothing to do with the incident. However, Caj’s
persistence proved fruitful when he found evidence that the defendants
had prior knowledge that the man’s place of work might explode.
Despite this discovery, the defendants were still unwilling to take responsibility
for their negligence. In fact, it wasn’t until Kurt Arnold had picked
the jury that the responsible party became accountable for the wrong they

that his employer was far too lax about jobsite safety—which directly
led to our client's injury. Only 3 months after our first deposition,
they settled with our client rather than face a jury. Arnold & Itkin
is proud to have held this company accountable for unsafe practices, and
we're even prouder to have helped our client move forward into a brighter,
financially stable future.
