The April 20, 2010, explosion and subsequent sinking of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico resulted in the largest accidental oil spill in history. Over the course of several months, more than 150 million gallons of oil were released into the Gulf of Mexico. As a result, tens of thousands of individuals and businesses have been adversely affected.
In response to tremendous political and public pressure, BP agreed to establish a $20 billion compensation fund designed to reimburse those who have suffered economic harm as a result of the oil spill. The fund is being managed by Mr. Ken Feinberg through the newly established Gulf Coast Claims Facility. The experience of dealing with this fund led Levin Papantonio to retaining a team of forensic accountants and economic modelers to assist our clients with the preparation and calculation of their damage claims.
Levin Papantonio and its attorneys have been working in the field of environmental law for decades. We are widely regarded as one of the top plaintiffs’ firms in the country as a result of our efforts on behalf of clients we have represented throughout the country. Specifically pertaining to the present catastrophe, we have handled numerous complex environmental cases on behalf of thousands of people and businesses throughout the country. Our environmental department was started and is still lead by Mike Papantonio. Mr. Papantonio has been recognized as one of the best trial lawyers in America and is a pioneer in the area of environmental law – particularly in the field of citizens and business affected by contamination. In the Pensacola area, we handled a large class action against Conoco dealing with massive groundwater contamination and successfully obtained a settlement of nearly $100 million for the residents. We also tried to verdict the class case of Perrine, et al. v. DuPont and obtained a nearly $400 million verdict on behalf of a class of 8,000 residents whose properties were contaminated with arsenic, cadmium and lead. As one more example, Levin Papantonio is currently lead class counsel in a class action against Raytheon for diminution in property value caused by groundwater contamination. In short, our firm has extensive experience with the types of claims for damages that will be required against BP, Transocean, Halliburton and others as a result of this catastrophe. We also have the financial wherewithal to stand toe to toe with these companies in order to best protect our clients’ rights.
