Veterinarians affected by oil spill seek compensation

The disastrous Gulf of Mexico oil spill of 2010 has had far reaching economic  and environmental impacts.

Fishermen and other people whose livelihoods depend on the sea have suffered severe economic losses. Losses have trickled down to others who provide goods and services to these individuals. Some veterinarians who serve in areas that were devastated by the oil spill noticed sharp declines in their revenue as people who work in the water lost wages and could no longer afford to take their pets in for care.

People who have lost revenue because of the spill may be eligible for claims against BP. To qualify, they must be able to show a drastic decrease in their income between the year before the spill, the year of the spill, and then a return to normal income the year after the spill.
