Laguna Beach Oil Spill Lawsuit Attorneys

The Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion that occurred on April 20th, 2010, tragically claimed the lives of 11 workers. But that was only the beginning of what has become one of the worst environmental disasters in US history. Oil has been flowing continuously from the site of the explosion and into the Gulf of Mexico, spreading from Texas to Florida.

Laguna Beach and other communities that are along the coast are in the difficult position of having their natural beauty, economic stability, and traditional heritage threatened by the leaking oil and its impact on the beaches and Gulf waters.

Economic Impact

Drawing on the geographical advantages of the Florida coast, Laguna Beach and other nearby towns have made tourism, fishing, and other beach and water-oriented industries the focus of their economies. The dependency upon these ventures has left many people and communities vulnerable to the damage done by the oil spill.

Canceled tourist visits and unfishable waters mean lost revenues, lost jobs, lost hope, and lost opportunities for local residents, workers, and businesses. To make matters worse, there appears to be no end in sight and estimates of the oil damage only continue to escalate.

Recovering Compensation

While the news media attempts to paint the consequences of the oil spill in sweeping terms that imply the far-reaching consequences of the disaster, it is felt much more pressingly in the homes of persons affected by the oil spill. The effects are likely to be lasting and it may be impossible for many to continue to work in their chosen fields, bringing harsh economic losses to countless households and companies.
