The BP Oil Disaster
Our firm is currently representing clients from the Florida panhandle to the Florida Keys whose businesses and livelihood have been or will soon be impacted by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
This disaster, unprecedented in its scale and scope, is likely to result in the largest damage payout in American history and will sorely test the ability of our legal system to handle the flood of claims.
While we have all heard BP’s repeated statements that “we will pay all legitimate claims,” that is not likely to happen. Most people believe that in order to recover the full extent of one’s damages claimants will need to be represented by experienced lawyers who can properly prepare and advocate for what is owed. If claims cannot be resolved voluntarily, then they will have to be tried in court just like any other case. Trying cases is what we do.
Our firm has been representing people from all walks of life for over 25 years in damage claims of all types. We have tried hundreds of cases and are well positioned to try the wide variety of cases that have resulted from this oil spill. A brief summary of just some of the cases we have tried are described here.
We are available to speak to anyone with a oil spill related claim and are happy to provide references at any time.
