The team at Williams Hart would like to announce that the firm is now investigating claims related to the oil spill in Galveston Bay that occurred just over a week ago. The incident in question occurred on Saturday, March 22, when two barges collided in Galveston Bay, one of which was carrying 924,000 gallons of oil. The collision resulted in the spilling of approximately 170,000 gallons of oil, which shut down the Houston Ship Channel, one of the country’s busiest ports, for several days.
Authorities have reported that the company that operated the oil-carrying barge will be fined by regulators in the state of Texas, and that this fine will occur regardless of the results in any investigations into the incident. If you or your business suffered adverse consequences because of this spill, contact the team at Williams Hart by calling (800) 220-9341 and learn more about the legal options that are available to you.
