Injures Caused by Texas Oil Spills
Oil spills are considered to occur any time there has been an unplanned
and human-caused release of oil into a natural environment where oil is
not meant to be located. Not only does this have a drastic environmental
effect, but can also have ramifications on the health of workers and individuals
and the economies of businesses located in the area of the oil spill.
Some of the injuries and illnesses caused by oil spills includes:
- Respiratory disease
- High blood pressure
- Toxic burns
- Birth defects
- Eye, nose, and throat irritation
- Neurological defects
Under the 1990 Oil Pollution Act, any oil spill that occurs on United States
territories or affects citizens requires the party responsible for the
spill develop a fund aimed at compensating those that have been affected.

Campolo may be able to file a claim on your behalf in order to recover
money from this fund. However, should your situation call for it, our
