Oil And Gas Explosion Trial Attorneys – Melton V. Encana Oil & Gas
On July 11, 2004, Mike Melton, an employee of Riley Industrial Services, a gas tank cleaning services company, was cleaning a “drain sump tank,” the toxic waste catch basin at EnCana’s natural gas plant near Moab, Utah, when an explosion occurred, as a result of EnCana’s violation of OSHA’s requirements to properly “lock out” and “tag” gas valves before opening the tanks. The Insider Exclusive will show proof of how EnCana falsely filed the OSHA permit, claiming that the “lock out/tag out” had occurred when it had not. As a result, Mike Melton suffered severe burns on his hands, wrists, and around his face, burning his ears, neck and hair (30% hearing loss). Mike has also developed an extreme case of CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome) in his hands and arms. He now can’t use his hands in any type of work. The Insider Exclusive will show you how Mike’s lawyer, Kent Spence, took on EnCana and Mike’s former employer when they tried to blame Mike for their mistakes. The jury found EnCana 100% responsible, and after Kent Spence asked the jury for $21 million actual damages and $100 million in punitive damages, EnCana made a last ditch effort to avoid financial catastrophe with a final offer outside the courtroom doors.
