The attorney for the family of a worker who was fatally injured at BP’s Texas City refinery recently stated that he will have a metallurgist test equipment to determine whether its age and condition were factors in the accident.

William Joseph Gracia, of Texas City, died after a metal lid flew off a water filtration vessel as it was being restarted. Gracia, who allegedly suffered a head injury and was burned, was treated first by BP Texas City emergency response personnel and then transported to the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston, where he died.

Tony Buzbee, who represents Gracia’s family, said he visited the accident site along with officials of BP and the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
