Are there health risks associated with the oil spill?

Doctors are concerned about both short-term and long-term health problems caused by the recent oil spill. In the short term, oil releases fumes that can cause headaches, respiratory problems, dizziness, and skin irritation. In the long term, oil from the spill may contaminate seafood, water supplies, and soil. The chemicals in oil can place people at an increased risk for cancer, neurological disorders, and other health problems.

If your health has been adversely affected by the oil spill, you may be able to seek compensation for your financial losses. For more information, contact the Gulf of Mexico oil spill lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-821-1544.
