Long-Term Health Effects from Oil Spill Exposure

The 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill caused millions of dollars in damage, and many people are still suffering financially from this tragic event. However, in addition to financial damages, people near the spill may find themselves suffering long-term health problems as a result. Victims of oil exposure are pushing BP to establish a health monitoring program to possibly provide financial compensation for these effects, but there are other methods of filing for compensation for your damages.

If you or someone you know has developed long-term health effects because of oil exposure following the Deepwater Horizon spill, you may be eligible to file for compensation with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility. Contact the experienced Gulf oil spill claims attorneys of Williams Hart today by calling 800-821-1544 to discuss your options.

Possible Long-Term Health Complications

The exact long-term health effects resulting from the oil spill are impossible to predict right now as it has only been a couple years since the Gulf coast oil spill occurred. However, based on oil’s effects on the body as well as reports from other oil spills, researchers estimate possible damages including:

  • Dermal problems
  • Respiratory issues
  • Brain damage
  • Emotional/psychological trauma such as PTSD

While many of the long-term health complications from the oil spill are not yet apparent, you can still file for compensation if you have experienced health problems following the oil spill.
