Who Pays After An Oil Spill?
In 1990, the Oil Pollution Act (OPA) was signed into law as a response to public concern following the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill. The OPA provides the financial resources necessary to respond to oil spill disasters. Out of the OPA, the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund was established to provide compensation to those suffering injuries or property damage due to an oil spill.

The BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
Due to the 2010 explosion and fire on the BP Deepwater Horizon offshore drilling platform, people and companies dependent on gulf coast businesses are experiencing serious financial challenges. There may be money available through the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund to provide compensation for those who have directly or indirectly suffered economic loss.
The Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund has a cap of $75 million in compensation for private parties. However, it is possible to have this cap waived if it can be proven that BP acted in a negligent manner.
