Following the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico in April, the resulting oil spill has had devastating effects on both the environment and the economy in the surrounding areas. Morgan and Morgan, a national law firm with offices throughout Florida and the Southeast, is dedicated to representing the interests of those who have been negatively affected by the BP oil spill as well as holding the parties whose negligence contributed to this tragedy accountable for their actions.

The commercial fishing industry has already been significantly affected by Gulf of Mexico oil spill and no one knows how long it will continue to feel the ill effects of this environmental catastrophe. Fishing grounds have been closed and boats remain docked, leaving many involved in the industry unable to work. Fishermen, boat owners, anglers, captains, and deckhands who depend upon use of the Gulf Coast waters are now dealing with the reality that their jobs and their livelihood are at risk.

Attorney Scott Weinstein of Morgan and Morgan is currently reviewing claims for those involved in the commercial fishing industry who have experienced economic losses and are interested in participating in an oil spill lawsuit. Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, commercial fishermen in Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and other areas may be entitled to compensation for the financial losses they have suffered as a result of the oil spill. According to this law, the parties responsible for an oil spill are liable for the resulting damages.
