In April, 2010, an explosion occurred on the BP’s Deepwater Horizon rig. Over the course of several months, more than 150 million gallons of oil was released into the Gulf of Mexico, leading to the largest accidental marine oil spill in history.
Tens of thousands of individuals & businesses were adversely affected.
The massive oil spill has had an enormous effect on the populations in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and Alabama. Many people have suffered significant medical or economic harm without realizing it. While cleanup efforts were underway, fishing was temporarily banned in much of the Gulf. This made it impossible for people who make their living in seafood and fishing to make an income. The oil spill washed up on resort beaches in large quantities, particularly along Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas and Florida, negatively affecting the tourism and hospitality industry.
Oil spill lawsuits can include:
- Loss of income
- Personal injury
- Property damage
- Other economic loss
