Since the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded and sank in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010, questions have persisted about who will be liable for damage from the spill. Eleven workers were killed in the explosion, and the rig’s sinking and resulting oil leak resulted in the largest environmental disaster in U.S. history. Transocean owned the rig, and it was leased and operated by BP at the time of the explosion. In this video, Beasley Allen shareholder Gibson Vance, who is currently serving as President of the American Association for Justice, discusses legal issues surrounding the BP oil spill, including legislation currently in Congress, and how those on the Gulf Coast will seek recourse for the damage.

A positive manner

Several years ago my brother and sister -in-law were in a terrible car accident. My sister in-law was paralyzed from her neck down. Beasley Allen handled the case for my brother to see to it that my sister-in-law received the proper and necessary care she needed. I appreciate the attorneys and staff of Beasley Allen in handling this matter quickly and in a positive manner. Good job Beasley Allen!!
