As a result of the oil spill disaster, and subsequent sinking of the Deepwater Horizon, Cueria Law Firm of New Orleans intends to represent individuals as well as businesses that have suffered damages. They are, therefore, entitled to receive various kinds of damages to compensate losses due to negligence and/or wantonness and strict liability. Such damages cover past, ongoing and future personal and property damages, loss of profits and earning capacity and loss of revenues, just to name a few. Furthermore, they can file a claim under the Oil Pollution Act (OPA) but need to meet some requirements as set forth by OPA.
The oil spill has already affected severely the entire Gulf cost. For instance, many people rely heavily on various activities, including, but not limited to, fishing, seafood and tourism. In addition, it will have dramatic consequences on the nature of the environment.
BP has been named the responsible party under (OPA).
