Oil Spill Claims, Compensation & Litigation

Worst-Ever Drilling Disaster

The Deepwater Horizon oil platform was located 41 miles off the coast of Louisiana, in an area known as the Mississippi Canyon. It sank into the gulf on Thursday, April 22, 2010 after an explosion earlier in the week.  It was owned and operated by Transocean Ltd., and was leased to BP Exploration & Production.  Eleven workers were killed and many more were injured and traumatized.  The oil spill that occurred in the aftermath of the explosion and collapse was the worst spill in the history of offshore drilling.

Oil Spill Attorneys Fight to Recover Damages for Clients

An oil spill lawyer specifically concentrating on the legal issues arising from the spill and the companies that are liable for the catastrophic accident can help you seek compensation for both personal injury and monetary damages claims:

  • Many more individuals and businesses have potential claims for these damages:
    • Assessment, mitigation and clean-up of spilled oil
    • Real property damage caused by the oil
    • Personal injury caused by the spill
    • Commercial losses such as loss of earnings/profit
    • Other losses as contemplated by applicable laws and regulations
