Five years since the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico

April 23, 2015, 9:00 am

Monday, April 20, 2015 marked five years since the Deepwater Horizon blowout in the Gulf of Mexico, causing the worst ecological catastrophe in human history. Eleven workers were killed and 17 injured by the initial blast, and over 200 million gallons of oil gushed out of the wellhead into the Gulf of Mexico.

Brent Coon & Associates Files Important Motion Allowing People To Leave “Broken” BP Class Settlement

April 19, 2015, 5:44 pm

Claims Settlement is ‘not what was presented to victims’ and ‘the vast majority of claimants will receive nothing”

Louisiana, US District Court, Eastern District - The Law Firm of Brent Coon & Associates today filed a motion to “re-notice” the class settlement – meaning, to ask the court to send notice to all participating businesses and individuals, making them aware that they would have the opportunity to leave (opt-out of) the settlement should they wish to pursue other legal remedies.  Currently, only a very small percentage of people have been paid through the class and members of the class do not have the right to leave nor to seek further legal options as the class settlement required them to forfeit their right to sue BP.


Horizon Oil Spill, BP’s Most Vulnerable Victims Are Still Struggling

April 15, 2015, 5:33 pm

In the summer of 2014, Skyland Seafood quietly shut down. In Mobile, Alabama, where the shop had been located for 17 years, Skyland’s demise caused a small, heartfelt shock wave, said customer Alice Lang, 67, who regularly mourns the store’s closing in conversations with her neighbors. As she prepared her family’s Christmas gumbo, Lang added that she felt uncertain about the seafood she’d just bought. It was a worry she hadn’t had in years, because she trusted Phoung Nguyen, Skyland’s owner. “Phoung Nguyen was my seafood guy. With him, everything was fresh from the water,” she said.
