Alabama Oil Spill Lawyers

Oil spill lawyers throughout Alabama are working to protect the rights of Alabama residents and workers following the April 2010 Gulf oil spill – also called the Deepwater Horizon spill. This horrific environmental disaster began when an oil well far below the gulf's surface blew out, resulting in an explosion on the oil rig above.

The millions of gallons of oil that started spewing out weren't capped off until three months later. By then, the livelihoods of thousands of Alabamans were ruined, in many cases forever. Thousands of jobs in fishing (commercial, recreational), tourism, the oil industry and much more were lost.

History of Alabama Oil Spills

As Gulf oil spill atttorneys in Alabama can tell you, Alabama and the other Gulf Coast states (Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida) have suffered oil spills before the Deepwater Horizon tragedy. For example, in 1990, a ship called the Megaborg exploded off the coast of Galveston, releasing over 5 million gallons of oil. In 1979, over 140 million gallons of crude oil were released into the Gulf waters when an exploratory oil well (the Ixtoc 1) blew out.

Every oil spill has terrible adverse effects on the ocean life, the ocean waters themselves, and potentially the people who work on or near the ocean. Oil spill attorneys in Mobile, Alabama and other parts of the state are working to obtain fair compensation for individuals, families and businesses who suffered damages due to the April 2010 oil spill.

Lawyers Handling Oil Spill Cases in Alabama

The lawyers handling oil spill cases in Alabama are also representing people whose lives were impacted by the unprecedented use of oil dispersant to combat the oil spill. Nearly two million gallons of dispersant were administered, and their effect on the ecosystem is still playing out. Both the oil and the dispersant are expected to affect the entire Gulf Coast for decades.
