Seeger Weiss has co-founded the BP Oil Spill Legal Network, a national coalition of lawyers with the experience necessary to assist you in recovering the losses you have or will suffer from the April 20, 2010 BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded about 50 miles off the Louisiana coast in the Gulf of Mexico, killing 11 workers and injuring 17 more. Two days later it sank in 5,000 feet of water.

Crude oil soon began streaming out of a broken pipe attached to a well a mile below sea level. Within days much of the nation was transfixed by a frantic effort by BP and the federal government to plug the leaks and contain a massive spill threatening the gulf coastline and the ocean itself.

As the crisis has unfolded, confusion has soared about the oil spill’s gravity, the potential effects on coastal residents, the risks to wildlife and who will foot the costs of the cleanup.
