Few Options Available to Slick Victims

Volunteers and rescue crews are finding that remedies for oil spill cleanup are limited, but one simple household product seems to be helping.

The household dishwasing liquid, Dawn, commonly found at kitchen sinks across America, is being effectively used by animal rescue and rehabilitation teams to help remove oil from feathers, fur, and skin of oil-soaked animals and people. 

Dawn, which is a brand of Proctor & Gamble, has already been on the scene of donated wildlife conservation programs for the past 30 years, cleansing more than 75,000 animals. Reportedly, conservation corps recommend cleaning birds with Dawn dishwashing liquid because of its ability to remove most oils in a non-irritating manor to wildlife and pets.

When an oil-covered mammal or bird tries to clean itself of the oil, it typically swallows the oil. Obviously the oil needs to be removed prior to that animal self-cleaning. But what has to happen is that the oil needs to be suspended in water, so it can be rinsed away. Dawn specifically allows the soap to wash away oil without leaving behind a residue. Rescuers clean the animals in a solution of 1 percent dishwashing soap and warm water, leaving the animals clean without the resulting harmful reside many other detergents leave.

  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.
