Upper Grand Lagoon Oil Spill Lawsuit Lawyers

On April 20th, 2010, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig set in motion a chain of events that would eventually threaten the livelihoods of countless Gulf Coast residents. The explosion prompted a rupture in the deep sea well that was being drilled, and tens of millions of gallons of crude oil have leaked into the Gulf of Mexico since the disaster began.

As a consequence of the oil spill, coastal communities like Upper Grand Lagoon have found themselves in the undesirable position of having their economies threatened. Many tourists have canceled existing vacation plans and reservations or have simply chosen to travel elsewhere. Moreover, health concerns have prompted a federal order to halt all fishing and shrimping operations for the time being, threatening the survival of many companies and their workers.

Economic Impact

There is no question that the Gulf of Mexico oil spill has had a strikingly adverse effect on the Gulf ecosystem and the animals that live in the water or depend upon the food sources it provides. This is a tragic reminder of the capacity of a negligent oil company like BP to do harm, but it constitutes only a portion of the negative consequences of the calamity.

The residents, workers, and companies of Upper Grand Lagoon and other coastal communities have had to contend with the sudden and unexpected loss of income, jobs, customers, or even the opportunity to conduct routine business. Tourist-oriented and fishing industries have been hit particularly hard, and the impact continues to expand and become more severe.

Fair Compensation

In the wake of a natural disaster, there is not typically an identifiable party that can be held accountable for the damage that results. This is not the case with the Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill, however, as there are several entities whose negligence can be quite clearly linked to the incident. This may grant individuals and corporations that have been harmed by the oil spill the opportunity to seek financial compensation for economic losses through a civil lawsuit.
