Confidential Settlement-Sugary Refinery Explosion-Burn Injury – Premises Liability – Work Injury
Jonah Flynn represented six workers burned and injured in an industrial disaster that occurred at a sugar refinery. Flynn Law Firm’s clients were all injured and suffering from the post traumatic effects of the explosion. Long before the incident, combustible dust explosions had been a problem at industrial facilities. The refinery was large and old, featuring outdated construction methods. Piles of explosive sugar, with no real means of ventilation littered the plant. The “fugitive sugar” proved to be a ticking time bomb, and when the refinery exploded, there were massive secondary conflagrations across the facility. The U.S. Chemical Safety Board found the explosion had been “entirely preventable”.
