Worker claims injuries in Motiva explosion

By David Yates | Feb 11, 2013

Jasper County resident Tommy Carrell Jr. is suing Motiva Enterprises for alleged injuries he received in an explosion that occurred in July 2011 at the Port Arthur refinery.

The suit was filed Feb. 5 in Jefferson County District Court. 

According to the lawsuit, on July 31, 2011, Carrell was working at the Motiva facility when an explosion occurred, causing him to suffer bodily injuries.

The suit accuses Motiva of negligence but declines to list any specific act of negligence allegedly committed by the company.

The plaintiff is suing for his alleged past and future medical expenses, mental anguish, pain, impairment and lost wages.

He is represented by attorney Curtis Leister of the Beaumont law firm Reaud, Morgan & Quinn.

Judge Gary Sanderson, 6oth District Court, is assigned to the case.

Case No. B193-894
