Lawsuit filed against Sunoco Logistics after Nederland fire

Two employees of Sunoco Logistics, a crude oil transporting company, have filed a law suit after a flash fire that occurred at the company’s crude oil terminal in Nederland, Texas last month.

Both plaintiffs were hospitalized due to their intense burns and other injuries, a press release stated.

According to preliminary investigations, seven workers were harmed while welding at the Sunoco terminal, which handles crude oil and extracts condensate, naphtha and base oils.

Matthew Matheny, one of the legal counsels in the case, said their team will be conducting an investigation on behalf of their clients, noting, “We’ll be talking to witnesses and examining any records of safety and maintenance procedures at the facility. This is a horrible accident, and we are prepared to find out why it occurred.”
