Toxic Gas Release During Delivery of Chemical Case Study


The Challenge

When a tank car failed at a customer’s plant, a release of toxic gas occurred. Our client, the supplier of the chemical, was the subject of a class action lawsuit.

Our Approach

Utilizing a partner’s expertise in the handling of this toxic material, corrosion expertise, and laboratory experiments which were video taped for use in court, we were able to show that the tank car failure and resulting release was due to the customer’s actions. Then using dispersion modeling we were also able to show that many of the claims of plaintiffs in the class were spurious.

The Benefits

Just prior to the start of the trial our client, the chemical supplier, was able to reach an acceptable settlement with the plaintiffs.
