Montgomery law firm Beasley, Allen, Crow, Methvin, Portis & Miles PC filed a class action lawsuit against BP for the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

The law firm filed a complaint against BP – officially called British Petroleum – in attempts to recoup losses for individuals and businesses that have incurred damages related to the disaster, such as property damages, loss of profits and loss of commercial and subsistence use of natural resources, according to a written statement.

The oil spill happened early last week when an explosion caused the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico to sink. As a result, about 5,000 barrels a day are leaking into the Gulf.

“We are calling on the Alabama congressional delegation to doeverything in their power to speed federal resources to the Gulf coast in order to minimize damage to the environment and the thousands of familiesthat depend on these waters for their livelihood. Our thoughts and prayers are with responders,” said Jere Beasley, founding shareholder of Beasley Allen.
