(Port Neches, TX) – An explosion at 1:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning at a TPC plant in Port Neches sent two employees and one contractor to the hospital with injuries. According to the Nederland Fire Department, the cause of the explosion is still unknown and the extent of the damage still needs to be assessed. Those living ten miles away from the plant reported that windows were blown out from the explosion.

The accident occurred at the plant, located at 2102 TX-136 Spur (off Highway 366 near Merriman). The injured workers were transported to the Medical Center and Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston for treatment.

Before you sign anything  “releasing any and all claims you might have now or in the future”, you  owe it to yourself and your family to sit down and discuss your situation with an attorney.
Although a quick settlement through a “claims line” or visiting adjuster may seem convenient it can prove disastrous if you later find out your injuries were  much more extensive than originally thought. For example, did your home suffer hidden structural damage. Were you and your family exposed to hazardous chemicals? What short or long term health consequences will you or your children suffer now or in  the future as a result of the possible hazardous chemical release?
Here at Portner Bond PLLC we have extensive experience dealing with industrial accidents including plant explosions.
