Soulard Boiler Explosion Cases Settle for Over $47 Million

2020-07-02 06:35:43 Legal / Law


A little more than two years after a massive boiler explosion occurred in Soulard, the parties have announced a settlement of all pending lawsuits. On April 3, 2017, a 3,000 pound, pressurized steam container violently exploded at the Loy-Lange Box Company facility on Russell Avenue. The container flew 500 feet through the air before crash landing into the Faultless Linen facility. One person was killed and two were injured at Loy-Lange, while three more were killed and another injured at Faultless Linen.

Lawsuits filed by those injured and the families of those killed were consolidated for an August 2019 trial before Judge Michael Noble in St. Louis City, Case NO. 1722-CC00994. A two-day mediation was conducted by retired Judge Glenn Norton on June 6 and 7. During mediation, the plaintiffs reached settlements with Kickham Boiler and Engineering, Chicago Boiler Company, Aquacomp Water Treatment Services, Loy-Lange, and Arise Incorporated. Following mediation, the plaintiffs also settled with Clayton Industries. The total amount of the settlements is slightly over $47 million.
