Deer Park and Surrounding Area Businesses Suffering Economic Fallout from Chemical Fires

Houston, TX – WEBWIRE

Since the massive Deer Park petrochemical fires began nearly two weeks ago, many area residents have experienced significant health issues, including headaches, nose bleeds, nausea, and respiratory distress. While the main focus has been on the environmental and health impact of these fires, little emphasis has been placed on the serious economic damage inflicted upon area businesses. As problems continue to persist at the Intercontinental Terminals Company (ITC) plant, the number of affected businesses in Deer Park and surrounding areas continues to grow by the day.
“We’ve been contacted by business owners who believe they’ve been significantly damaged by these fires,” says Ben Bronston, attorney and founder of Ben Bronston & Associates. “Evacuations, residents unwilling to leave their homes, employees unable to go to work, and shipping disruptions are just a few of the things hurting area businesses,” he adds.
Many restaurants, retail stores, businesses that rely on shipped goods, and transportation companies have been negatively impacted. Bronston compares the Deer Park ITC fires to the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill in 2010 which caused a trifecta of health, environmental, and economic harm.
Business owners in Deer Park and the surrounding areas of Houston who have been affected by the ITC fires are being urged to seek legal counsel to discuss their options.
“The effects may be profound and long-lasting, so it’s important that business owners who have been or will be impacted by this man-made disaster consult with an experienced attorney to discuss their rights,” adds Bronston.
