National law firm providing legal counsel to individuals and business owners adversely impacted by Gulf of Mexico oil spill

In addition to an accident that caused the tragic death of 11 workers and has resulted in the worst environmental disaster in American history, the oil spill in the Gulf has also triggered a chain of events that is causing massive economic disruption to thousands of families in the region

One of the nation's largest personal injury law firms, Cellino & Barnes has established a team of attorneys focused on assisting residents of the Gulf Coast who have suffered economic damages as a result of the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

The Cellino & Barnes attorneys are representing individuals and business owners who have lost income, been hit with decreased business revenues, experienced property damage or suffered other economic consequences or injuries as a direct result of the spill.

As the crisis has continued to drag on, the economic consequences for business owners and workers in the region have begun to accelerate. Last week, BP agreed to pay $20 billion into a compensation fund for victims of the oil spill, which was triggered by the explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in April.

Newly released documents show that after the Deepwater Horizon sank, BP made a worst-case estimate of 2.5 million gallons a day flowing into the Gulf of Mexico.

"In addition to an accident that caused the tragic death of 11 workers and has resulted in the worst environmental disaster in American history, the oil spill in the Gulf has also triggered a chain of events that is causing massive economic disruption to thousands of families in the region," said Stephen Barnes, an experienced trial attorney at Cellino & Barnes, one of the nation's largest personal injury law firms. "This is a national tragedy."

According to Barnes, the attorneys at Cellino & Barnes have recovered more than $1 billion for its clients. Some notable national settlements include cases against the airline industry, pharmaceutical companies and the auto industry.
