On or about November 12, 2021, Emmanuel Rosales was working at X-FAB’s facility in Lubbock, Texas, which is equipped with a Deionized (DI) Water system. On the day of this incident, X-Fab added hydrogen peroxide to a tank associated with the DI water system which contained resin, creating an unsafe environment, near the DI water system and water tanks. Emmanuel Rosales was later instructed to open a valve on the DI water system and an explosion occurred causing significant injuries to Emmanuel, which led to his death.

“The family wants answers,” said the plaintiffs’ attorney, Jason Medina of Glasheen, Valles & Inderman Injury Lawyers. “The lawsuit gives us the tools to conduct a thorough investigation to determine why the explosion happened and give the family the answers they deserve.”
