BP Gulf Oil Spill
- Issue: Multi-state environmental disaster
In Re: Oil Spill by the Oil Rig "Deepwater Horizon" in the Gulf of Mexico
Lieff Cabraser and co-counsel represent property owners, business owners, wage earners, and other harmed parties in class action litigation against BP, Transocean, Halliburton, Cameron, and other defendants for the Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion and resulting oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010. Elizabeth J. Cabraser serves on the Plaintiffs' Steering Committee (PSC) that is spearheading the litigation in federal court before U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier.
The Court has approved two class action settlements with BP that will fully compensate hundreds of thousands of victims of the tragedy. The settlements resolve the majority of private economic loss, property damage, and medical injury claims stemming from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, and hold BP fully accountable to individuals and businesses harmed by the spill.
Under the settlements, there is no dollar limit on the amount BP will pay. BP must fully satisfy all qualified claims. To date businesses and individuals that suffered economic losses or property damage have received over $1 billion through the class action settlement program.
