What will this cost me? 

Our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. If we do not recover money for your business from BP, we do not get paid. There is no upfront cost to you. 

I can’t prove that my business was harmed by the oil spill. How can I be entitled to money from BP? 

The settlement recognizes that the oil spill hurt the entire state of Florida, not just businesses along the coast. The settlement does NOT require you to prove that your business was hurt specifically because of the oil spill. 

 Is my business included in this settlement? 

 Almost every kind of business located anywhere in the state of Florida is included in this settlement. Our lawyers will check to make sure your business is included.

Florida Oil Spill | Missing Oil Found

Florida Oil Spill .com put out a calll for the missing or disappearing oil. Today we found some of it buried on the beaches in the Florida panhandle. In a Study called "Ongoing Beach Cleanup of the BP Oil Spill – A Superficial Job, Literally" scientists seem to have found oil under the formerly pristine sand of some Florida Beaches. The study reviews how the oil came to be buried, out of sight and out of mind. You can view the complete story of how oil gets buried here for free. Its a real page turner, but we suspect you can guess how the oil was hidden beneath the surface.

According to scientists, the first picture, to your left "Figure 1 shows the different forms of oil contamination, including: 1) tar balls: discrete accumulations of oil <10 cm (4 inches) in diameter (Figure 1a); 2) tar patties: discrete accumulations of oil >10 cm (inches) in diameter (Figure 1b); 3) tar cakes: tar patties exceeding 3 cm in thickness (Figure 1c); 4) oil sheets: discrete, but spatially continuous accumulation of oil >5 m (15 feet) in length or width (Figure 1d); 5) oil stains: a visible thin veneer of oil coating sediment grains (Figure 1e), which cannot be mechanically separated from the sediment, as compared to the other four forms of oil contamination. All five forms of “beach oiling” are found along the nearly 300 km of beaches along the Alabama and northern Florida coast. Figure 1.

The scientists also discovered, "all forms of oil contamination as discussed above were also observed beneath the surface of the beach, buried at various depths within several tidal cycles, i.e., few days. Figure 5a shows continuous oil sheet buried within the foreshore subenvironment under calm wave conditions during the oil beachfall on June 24, 2010. The subsurface oil layer dipped seaward following the antecedent foreshore topography, buried up to 10 inches at the seaward end and pinching out at depth of 2 inches under the active berm crest within one tidal cycle." USF Study

A shout out to the USF team including: Ping Wang and Tiffany M. Roberts Coastal Research Laboratory, Department of Geology, University of South Florida, Tampa, James (Rip) Kirby, Jun Cheng, Katherine E. Brutsche, Mark H. Horwitz, and Stoddard Pickrel.

Florida Oil Spill | How Much is Left in the Gulf?

Florida Oil Spill Lawyer
Oil Disappears?

Florida Oil Spill .com notes strange reports that most of the the oil, about seventy-four percent of the oil blasting into the Gulf for around three months, has disappeared. Standby for the truth. NBC reports healthy skepticism of claims of the disappearance of the oil.

We remain vigilant and hope that oil disappeared. These reports are a curious departure from the early estimates of thousands, if not millions of gallons of crude oil have been shot into the Gulf of Mexico in the weeks and months since the Deep Water Horizon blow out.

Please let us know if you find any "missing" oil.

Florida Oil Spill Legal Team

Florida Attorney Michael Maddux just sent us this interesting tip about the Florida Oil Spill legal team being assembled by Tampa lawyer Steve Yerrid. According to the Tampa Bay Business Journal, BP will have to answer and respond to Yerrid's handpicked team of lawyers retained to respond to the claims from the Deepwater Horizon mess. According to a message we reviewed Mr. Yerrid is an, "experienced trial lawyer who was key in obtaining tobacco industry settlement money for Florida and who specializes in maritime matters. Yerrid has started assembling a team of lawyers he said will make certain the state is compensated for damages that as yet are not quantified."

Oil Spill Flashback | 1979 Videos

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Disaster from 1979 starring some of the same cast members of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon cast? Impossible - no, there was a 1979 oil rig disaster that leaked for over 6 months. The Florida coastline was threatened and they attempted and failed to stop the leak. The only difference - they were in 200 feet of water, not 5,000 feet.

Florida Oil Spill | Three Days from Space

Florida Oil Spill Attorney has been tracking the spreading oil by using the NASA Earth Observatory Images that are collected whenever the lack of cloud cover permits. The May 22, 2010 image shows the oil slick in relation to the Mississippi Delta. The image from May 23, 2010, shows oil and muddy water from the Mississippi River. On May 24, 2010 the image shows the approximate location of the Deepwater Horizon and a possible controlled burn of surface oil.

Current May Flow Spilled Oil Towards Keys

[University of South Florida]
Current May Flow Spilled Oil Towards Keys

University of South Florida College of Marine Science (USF) computer models calculate the possibility of the oil spill (black) being pulled south by the loop current by Wednesday. USF is using real time and historical data of topography, temperature, salinity and air and water velocity in their computer simulations to project different scenarios for the plume of the oil spill disaster.
