Environmental Hazards and Toxic Tort in Texas
Refining and industrial processing are major industries throughout Texas, particularly oil and petroleum refining. These industries are not only essential to the financial stability of our state, they also allow Americans across the nation the products they necessary for our current way of life.
While the majority of refineries and processing plants work diligently to ensure they are withing EPA and state guidelines for safe pollution and waste management, a single act of negligence can put countless lives at risk.
Recently, a benzene leak at the Intercontinental Terminals Co. facility in Harris County resulted in shelter-in-place orders being issued for Deer Park and Galena Park residents. The lead followed a fire at the facility with the resulting plume being visible from miles away.
However, environmental hazards may not be restricted to facilities and refineries. An incident in Lakeland, Florida prompted a stay indoors order after a train derailed resulting in a hazardous chemical spill.
