A lawsuit arising out of the death of a local man resulting from a 2013 explosion at a Tyler County oil and gas operation came to a conclusion on Wednesday.
The Circuit Court of Ohio County approved the settlement of $18 Million for the wrongful death case that had been filed by the law firm of Bordas & Bordas on behalf of the family of Bruce Phipps.
The lawsuit alleged that the negligence of several companies who were involved in operating the Eureka-Hunter Pipeline, LLC Twin Hickory pig launching and receiving station caused the explosion that led to Phipps' death. Phipps was survived by his widow, Karen Phipps, who initiated the lawsuit on behalf of the Estate, as well as a daughter, two grandchildren and three siblings.Click here to read more.
