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.

Environmental hazards lawsuits cover a ride-range of litigation. Typically, though, the goal is to hold polluters and manufacturers of toxic materials accountable for their actions and help the victims of their negligence recover damages for their illnesses and/or injuries.

Due to the serous nature of environmental hazard lawsuits, litigation may also result in the negligent party paying punitive damages. Punitive damages are an exemplary damage assessed in order to punish the defendant when their behavior or negligence is considered especially egregious or outrageous. In a toxic tort lawsuit, the hope is that punitive damages will serve as an example to other polluters that their behavior will not be tolerated.
