Land Affected by the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

Deepwater drilling has been aggressively pushed as a vital part of the energy industry. It has also been reviled as posing too great a threat to the environment, specifically to the ecosystem of the waters in which the drilling is conducted. Prior to the Deepwater Horizon explosion on April 20th, 2010, and the subsequent oil spill, little concern had been focused upon the impact that a potential disaster might have on the coastal lands.

Though the rig was approximately 41 miles off of the Louisiana coast, the spill has been sufficiently large that hundreds of miles of coast have been hit with oil, from Texas all the way to the Florida panhandle. As the owner of oil-damaged property or one whose life has been affected by the effects of oil on coastal lands, you may have grounds to seek financial compensation through a legal action.

Areas Vulnerable to the Oil Spill

Some of the areas that are particularly susceptible to the effects of the oil spill include:

There is a tendency to think of there being a clear division between the land and the water along the coast. The reality is different, however, especially along the Gulf Coast. The low elevation and flatlands beyond the coast have served to extend the reach of the water inland. Because of this, a variety of ecosystems have been threatened by the oil spill.
