BP Oil Spill Attorney
Have you been negatively affected by the oil spill?
The April 20 British Petroleum Deepwater Horizon explosion causing the massive Gulf of Mexico oil spill has damaged people throughout the area in many ways. Oil rig workers died in the explosion. Commercial fishermen lost their jobs and are now stuck with the payments on idle fishing boats. Hotel and restaurant owners have seen their businesses go broke as the tourist trade died. Owners of shorefront property have seen property values crumble. Workers in all affected industries are coping with unemployment.
Based on previous similar disasters, it is expected that cleanup workers will suffer physical ailments from prolonged exposure to the toxic substances involved in the cleanup. It is evident from investigation that BP was guilty of recklessness and gross negligence in its rushed procedures to cap the well that led to the disaster. BP is responsible for the damage it has caused. If you have been damaged, you need to contact a Denver personal injury lawyer who is active in obtaining compensation from BP for victims.
Damages for Oil Spill Claims
The damages from the disaster meriting compensation include loss of income to hotel owners and restaurants who saw tourists cancel reservations as they avoided visiting the former tourist destination. Commercial fishermen who formerly harvested the now decimated fishing grounds are entitled to compensation for their financial loss. Workers idled by the disaster have a claim for lost wages. Cleanup workers who develop illnesses from toxic cleanup materials are due compensation for medical bills, income loss and pain and suffering.
