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.

If you have suffered significant economic losses due to the BP oil spill, contact the Gulf oil spill claims lawyers of Williams Hart at 800-821-1544 to learn more about your legal options.

Transocean discusses BP’s internal investigation of oil spill

Transocean Ltd. has announced that the internal investigation that has been done by BP has left out the design of the well as a factor that led to the oil spill disaster in April.

Transocean has said that the report is “self-serving that attempts to conceal the critical factor that set the stage for the Macondo incident.”¬† The month long investigation that was done by BP was completed before the blowout preventer was analyzed, which was a key piece of evidence.

BP’s report states that the accident occurred after a series of complex mechanical issues, engineering design, and human error and failure. BP defended the design of the well, but was critical of their own workers who were on the rig.
