Andy Payne Settles an Explosion Case
Rather than properly and safely disposing of chemicals, the defendant sold steel drums that still contained volatile substances. These drums were sold for use as trash barrels to the public, who had no knowledge that they still may contain dangerous residue. PayneMitchell’s client was injured when one of these drums violently exploded. They were able to track the defendant’s shortcuts. The case settled shortly after PayneMitchell was able to prove the bad conduct was clear.
