Texas City Personal Injury Attorneys

Established, Proven League City Personal Injury Attorneys

Texas City and the Texas Gulf Coast are the home of major ports along with numerous oil refineries and chemical plants that provides employment for thousands of residents. However, these opportunities carry significant risks for explosions and industrial related accidents.

In 2005, an explosion at the Texas City BP oil refinery killed 15 workers and caused serious injuries to hundreds of others. After this tragic accident, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) performed an investigation and found numerous safety violations on the part of BP management. Ultimately, BP was assessed a multimillion-dollar fine and was required to correct unsafe working conditions at its Texas City plant under an agreement between its management and OSHA. Burwell Nebout Trial Layers played a significant role in obtaining settlements for their injured workers and implementing changes at the refinery.

FELA/Worker Injury

A 15-year machinist for Union Pacific Railroad was injured when a locomotive coupled into his blue flagged locomotive in the diesel shop at Union Pacific’s Houston facility. Although the machinist failed to engage the shop derails and acknowledge the track alarm, the contention was that Union Pacific employee took one minute and forty-four second water break during a walk around prior to the coupling.

During this water break, the machinist blue flagged his locomotive and began working. Burwell Nebout filed suit against Union Pacific Railroad in Harris County. After a two-week trial in the 157th District Court in Harris County, the jury awarded the machinist $566,105. The jury determined that Union Pacific Railroad violated the federal regulation that absolutely prohibits coupling into a blue flagged locomotive.
