Alabama Oil Spill Attorney
Oil Spills in Alabama
After the 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a survey revealed that 70 percent of consumers were inclined to not eat seafood as a result of the spill. Known as the largest environmental disaster the United States has ever encountered, the BP oil spill wreaked havoc on Alabama coastlines and the fishing industry as well. If you are a fisherman or
commercial shrimper, you have most likely felt the blow from the spill in your business. In fact, reports show that much of the seafloor off the Alabama coast was killed because of the spill.
According to scientists and tourist alike, fish carcasses littered the sand in 60 feet of water, and there was nothing living in the ocean off the Alabama coast. Tourism in the state has also suffered as a result of the spill as many families cancelled their beach vacation plans. Even though much of the oil has been remediated, the stigma of an oil-ridden beach still remains in people's minds when they think of the Alabama coastline. If your business has suffered as a result of the spill, you have every right to seek a claim against BP and Arnold & Itkin is here to help. An experienced Alabama oil spill lawyer from our firm will seek the maximum amount of compensation available for your claim.
