Fighting for the Rights of Injured People for More Than 30 Years
The Oil and Drilling Industry has destroyed portions of the Atchafalaya Basin fisheries that have been traditionally fished by generations of Louisiana crawfishermen. The Oil and Drilling Industry’s environmental destruction to the Atchafalaya Basin is due to the creation of spoil banks that act like dams, preventing water oxygenation, and killing whole fisheries. The Oil and Drilling Industry is responsible not only for huge economic losses to Louisiana Basin crawfishermen, but also to the loss of the Cajun fishermen’s cultural way of life as these Cajun crawfishermen are forced to seek other forms of employment. We have successfully litigated environmental destruction claims for crawfishermen throughout the Basin.
Economic losses impact Louisiana citizens whose livelihoods are related to those waterways and/or properties that are damaged or destroyed by businesses’ environmental destruction and toxic waste. Negatively impacted are:
- Louisiana fishermen and crawfishermen
- Louisiana farmers
- Louisiana ranchers
- Louisiana landowners
- Louisiana property developers
- Louisiana sportsmen and businesses of this nature
The 2010 British Petroleum (BP) Deepwater Horizon oil spill has caused serious damage to the Gulf of Mexico, including disruption to the livelihood of fishermen throughout the Gulf.
