Mistakes after an Oil Spill

An oil spill like the one that caused by the Deepwater Horizon explosion in 2010, can leave residents and business owners to contend with extensive property damage and lost income, to say nothing of the ecological impact it can have on the region’s waters. Many of those affected by the oil spill may have been uncertain about how to proceed in an effort to recover compensation or benefits to address these concerns and so did nothing. Unfortunately, this has resulted in many individuals failing to secure the funds that they need to resume their normal lives.
