  • The Deepwater Horizon oil spill has already resulted in hundreds of lawsuits, with more certainly on the way. A significant number of these suits have been filed by Gulf Coast residents and businesses allegedly affected by the spill. For example, fishermen and shrimpers have sued BP PLC and other defendants claiming their businesses have suffered losses as a result of oil contamination in the Gulf waters and adjacent areas.
