Lawyers for Oil Spill Victims Along the Texas Gulf Coast

An oil leak resulting from an explosion in the Gulf of Mexico has spewed untold gallons of oil into the Gulf. As tides and winds carry the oil throughout the region, individuals, business owners and fisherman all face tremendous changes to their lives and livelihoods.

The oil spill could not have come at a worse time. After residents of New Orleans and the entire Gulf Coast have just begun to recover from Hurricane Katrina, they are finding that much of the time and effort they have invested in rebuilding could be lost.

At the Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, we understand just how extensive the effects of the Gulf Oil Spill may be. As Board Certified Personal Injury Specialists (attorneys Dennis Peery, John N. Tyler and James Shaffer are Board Certified in Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization), we have represented countless clients whose lives have been destroyed by the negligence of others. Our focus is on helping them achieve favorable settlements and jury verdicts in state and federal courts.

Compensation is Available for Gulf Oil Spill Victims

Gulf Oil Spill VictimsThe BP oil spill was almost certainly caused by negligence. Whether that negligence was on the part of British Petroleum oil company executives, Halliburton workers or employees of Transocean has yet to be determined. What we do know is that the law offers protection for people injured by oil spills.

Under the Oil Pollution Act, oil companies and other negligent parties face increased penalties when their actions cause oil spills. These penalties include millions of dollars paid in compensation for certain damages and removal costs related to damage caused by the oil spill. In addition to millions of dollars in economic and environmental damage compensation, billions of dollars in federal funds may also be available to Gulf Oil Spill victims.

If you have been harmed by the Gulf Oil Spill, you may be entitled to some of this compensation. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Tyler & Peery can help you determine whether or not you may be eligible. We can pursue compensation on your behalf by holding the oil company and other negligent corporations accountable for the harm they caused.

Taking on large corporations requires extensive resources, especially when complex issues of federal law are involved. However, the personal injury lawyers at our San Antonio law firm are well prepared to achieve the best possible results. We are seasoned trial lawyers who have the knowledge and experience necessary to hold oil executives responsible for "all legitimate claims" resulting from the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
