BCA represents widow of first TPC related death

The widow of a man who is the first and potentially only person to have reportedly died as a result of the TPC Group explosion is announcing her intent to sue the company.

Darlene Fontenot’s husband Trent had a heart attack shortly after last week’s blast, according to Attorney Brent Coon.

She was one of several people who attended a news conference Friday morning to discuss the impacts of the explosion.

The press conference included experts and investigators that discussed a lack of laws on the books to regulate the petrochemical industry as well as labor leaders whom have seen first hand the catastrophic repercussions of these incidents.
