More Injured Workers at BP’s Texas City Refinery

| Sep 28, 2010 | Firm Case News

Two workers were burned by steam while working at BP’s Texas City refinery on September 21. One worker suffered burns over 30 percent of his body, including injuries to his torso, left arm, and left leg and was taken by LifeFlight to UTMB Hospital’s Burn Unit. The other worker was transported by ambulance to Mainland Medical Center. BP’s Texas City refinery, the nation’s third largest refinery, is the site of the worst U.S. refinery accident in the past five years when 15 workers were killed and 180 injured in an explosion on March 23, 2005. BP has paid over $1.6 billion to compensate victims of this tragedy. It is also the site where benzene was released for 40-days due to a unit malfunction earlier this year, which currently is the focus of a class-action lawsuit.
