Weitz & Luxenberg, invited by the law firm of Levin, Papantonio, Thomas, Mitchell, Echsner, Rafferty & Proctor, P.A. has joined together with noted environmental advocates Erin Brockovich and Carol Moore to help those impacted by the epic BP oil spill—4 million gallons and counting—in the Gulf of Mexico. An explosion on April 20, 2010, killed 11 workers, and sank the offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, setting in motion the unfolding disaster.
Brockovich and Moore are traveling to Gulf States, including Florida, Alabama and Mississippi, to meet with the people impacted by the spill and to discuss with them how they have been affected and will be impacted in the future.
"I would like to tell the local commercial fishermen who aren’t able to earn a living, and other business owners, ‘You have rights and we can help.’” said Brockovich.
Weitz & Luxenberg and Levin Papantonio, together with a consortium of law firms, has filed lawsuits in response to the BP oil spill. The class action cases which were filed against BP, Halliburton, Cameron and other parties, seek to recover damages suffered by clients as a result of the Gulf oil spill.
Robin Greenwald, head of the Environmental & Toxic Torts unit of Weitz & Luxenberg said, “Beyond the millions of gallons already spilled, this is an ongoing race against time to try to stanch the oil gushing from the well. The rig explosion and failure to control the oil slick is devastating wildlife, fisheries, tourism and everyday living along the Gulf Coast.”
