In April of 2010, a blowout of BP's well killed 11 workers and spilled nearly 200,000,000 gallons of oil into the Gulf. The result of the blowout and oil wreaked havoc on the Gulf, as well as the marine life that inhabited the region. The devastation to the marine life also significantly impacted numerous businesses that depended upon the Gulf, such as fishermen, restaurants, hotels and numerous tourist attractions along the coastline. Mandelbaum Trichler Law Center, primarily known for assisting injured accident victims, is representing business owners who have sustained economic losses stemming from the oil spill.
As a result of the tragic oil spill, BP established a $20,000,000,000.00 compensation fund to compensate Gulf Coast residents and businesses that sustained an economic loss. The BP settlement set forth a fund to compensate businesses that were affected directly or indirectly and that sustained an economic dip in the months following the spill. In establishing the settlement fund, BP has accepted responsibility for certain economic losses to certain eligible businesses in qualifying Gulf Coast counties.
