Midway Oil Spill Lawsuit Attorneys

Since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion on April 20th, 2010, leaked oil has been gradually drifting towards the Gulf Coast. Cities and towns from Louisiana to Florida have reported sightings of oil sheen and tar balls along the coast, blemishing the usually pristine beaches and marshes. For cities like Midway, Florida, the threat of oil washing ashore is not just environmental concern, but also an economic one that could greatly affect local incomes and livelihoods.

Economic Impacts

Like other cities along the Florida panhandle coast, Midway lies within the zone of oil contamination. While it is normally a popular destination for tourists, particularly during the summer months, many visitors have canceled their plans to visit to avoid the spill. The tourism, hotel, restaurant, fishing, and real estate industries are all at risk of losing customers and clientele because of the oil disaster. Midway business owners may be struggling to make a profit, and some workers may lose their jobs.
