On April 20, 2010, an explosion and fire on the Deepwater Horizon drilling platform caused the death of 11 workers and put into motion events that have led to one of the worst natural disasters in American history. Today, over 200 million gallons has leaked into the Gulf of Mexico.
As clean up continues, those that make their living in the waters of the Gulf and along the Gulf Coast are paying a horrible price. Oil now pollutes the beaches keeping tourists away, is killing the sea life putting the commercial fisherman out of business, and generally wreaking havoc on an area that relies on the water to survive. Worst of all, scientists and government officials have no idea what the long-term impacts will be.
The Law Offices of Wolf & Pravato is currently taking in new clients who have been impacted by the negligence of the oil companies for Class Action Lawsuits against BP and others involved in causing this tragedy.
