Finding the Right Oil Spill Lawyer

Why the People of the Gulf Need Dedicated Oil Spill Attorneys

The April 2010 explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil platform and the subsequent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico had an almost immediate impact on people, businesses and the natural environment in the area.  For many, the impact will be felt for years to come.  Anyone injured by the disaster—including lost business profits or personal injury—should seek out the help of oil spill lawyers who focus their practice on understanding the issues involved and the ways of obtaining oil spill compensation for them.

Types of Claims for Oil Spill Compensation

An oil disaster like the one in the Gulf can bring up all sorts of legal claims, which usually call for a lawyer with particular expertise in that area of law or practice.  Qualified oil spill attorney Henry C. Dailey, Jr. can help you with oil spill litigation of various kinds, including—

  • Wrongful death claims focused on negligence or recklessness as the cause of another person’s death and the emotional injuries to his family—such as the 11 workers killed in the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon spill rig
  • Cases where you or a family member become ill because of exposure to oil or tar balls
  • Claims that your fishing, shrimping, tourism or resort business—or any other business that relies on the Gulf shores and waters—  is losing thousands of dollars because no one wants to rent your property
  • Loss of customer or having to close down because of the oil spill
  • Property damage, such as staining or discoloration of the sand on your beachfront property or the paint on your home
  • Obnoxious smells or odors making it unpleasant to stay on your property
  • Loss in value of your property, considering how much could you have sold the property for before the spill and what is the price today
  • Vacation rental cancellations
  • Damage to the environment in your community

Talk to a Qualified Attorney About Litigation

Statutes of limitations apply to oil spill litigation, so do not wait to talk to an attorney about the damages you have already suffered and those you anticipate are still to come.  Another good reason to talk to an attorney as soon as possible is the uncertainty about how much money will be left to satisfy your claim when it is filed.  Even mammoth insurance and oil companies sometimes collapse—or find a way to escape paying their obligations to victims.

If you or a loved one has been injured or has died or you have suffered economic loss as a result of oil industry negligence, you need an experienced attorney to help:

  • Uncover the reasons why and cause of the explosion
  • Face off against an enormous corporation
