BP OIL SPILL CLAIMS & SUITS
The BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill that occurred in April, 2010, along the U.S. Gulf Coast will have lasting personal, environmental and economic impacts along the Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas and Florida coast lines. If you have suffered an injury as a result of the BP Oil Spill it may benefit you to contact a lawyer at Burns, Cunningham & Mackey to discuss your legal options. In many cases, individuals, workers and businesses impacted by the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico may be able to recover legal damages from the entities involved.
Businesses around the Gulf Coast suffered significant losses as a result of the BP oil spill. Individuals who worked on vessels such as oil rigs, tugs, barges, or fishing/shrimp boats may be able to recover wages, expenses, and other injuries from their employer or other responsible parties. Their claims fall under a special provision of admiralty and maritime law known as the Jones Act. People who live and work near the Gulf oil spill may experience health related issues as a result of the toxic fumes or chemicals produced by the oil spill and dispersants used to dissipate the oil.
Property owners may also suffer property damage from oil washing onto their land or from a devaluation of their property as the stigma of the oil spill continues to grow. An attorney may be able to help recover for all of these types of damages caused by the BP spill.
A personal injury claim is concerned with obtaining compensation for the injuries received in an accident, including loss of wages, pain and suffering, property damage, and medical expenses. Typically, disputes are between private parties, but many do involve disputes between individuals and large corporations.
The most recent BP fund, managed by Deepwater Horizon Claims Center, arises out of a settlement agreement approved by the Federal Court in New Orleans.
