CHICAGO, IL (May 15, 2019) – Attorneys from Romanucci & Blandin, LLC have been retained to represent a victim of the deadly explosion which took place in the evening of Friday, May 3rd in Waukegan, Illinois, about 40 miles north of Chicago, at AB Specialty Silicones. The firm has launched an investigation into the event which left four workers dead and several others injured, demanding full transparency and accountability from the possible responsible parties, and will soon be seeking protection and preservation of evidence. 

The blast caused severe damages and was felt several miles away. It is believed that something in the process of mixing chemicals went wrong, possibly causing this incident. The Chemical Safety Board, which investigates serious chemical accidents has sent a team to Waukegan, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency which was on the scene. Due to the severity of the blast, the manufacturing facility was gutted, and damaged five neighboring buildings.

“We have been hired to investigate the harmful effects of this tragic explosion and to figure out exactly what caused this terrible event to take place,” said Antonio M. Romanucci, Founding Partner at Romanucci & Blandin, LLC. “The Waukegan community has suffered a tremendous loss, and it is of the upmost importance to provide them, and all residents of Illinois with answers and solutions to ensure that a tragedy like this never takes place again,” added Robert Baizer, Senior Counsel at Romanucci & Blandin.
