Houston, Texas (May 22, 2024) — Houston attorneys, Mo Aziz a partner at the law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner, attorney Edward P. “Ted” Keenan along with attorney Giovanni Padilla and Adrian Zuniga of the Z & P Law Group, PLLC. have filed a lawsuit against Advantek Waste Management Services and Drillwell, Inc. following a saltwater disposal plant explosion in Westhoff that injured one worker and claimed the life of another on May 17, 2024.

The explosion occurred around 2:30 p.m. at an Advantek Waste Management Services saltwater disposal plant in Westhoff, Texas. At the time of the incident, hazardous materials were being offloaded at the facility. The injured survivor watched as the driver of the Drillwell truck lifted the hood and was in close proximity to the blast. Following the explosion, the facility caught on fire, resulting in the death of another worker.

Commenting on the lawsuit, Attorney Mo Aziz said, “Shipping, handling, and transfer of flammable materials can be hazardous if proper safety protocols and procedures are not followed. If proper permitting and procedures are followed, then an uncontrolled release of flammable materials should not occur at a jobsite.”
