Louisiana Residents Apprehensive of Approaching Spill

With the massive oil slick spreading up the Gulf Coast shoreline, some 5,000 barrels are set to impact the coast. Louisiana's commercial fishing industry, which sells $1.8 billion of product each year, or 40-percent of the seafood caught or farmed in the lower 48 states and consumed domestically, is in peril.

While the oil is just now lapping against shore, impact from the oil spill is already being felt by charter boat captains, oystermen and shrimpers along the Gulf Coast, who have been frantically increasing their fishing expeditions to get as far enough in the black before the oil inundates the shore.

With 15,000 miles of coastline and three-million acres of wetlands, Louisianans are apprehensive of the cost of this disaster. Louisiana shores, which are home to speckled trout, red drum, shrimp and many game fish, will be at high risk for losses this season - as well as potentially destructive long-term losses.

When calculating the losses in terms of personal tolls, Gulf Coast residents can also look to the causes of the spill, making sure that those who created the disaster are also responsible for its cleanup and restitution to those who have suffered from it. The Doan Law Firm can help those affected by this man-made disaster overcome their hardship.

  1. After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
