Montgomery, AL: A class action lawsuit has been filed in the Southern District of Alabama against British Petroleum and Nalco Company. The class representatives are Glynis Wright and Janille Turner, who claim personal injuries and property damage related to BP's oil spill remediation activities on the Gulf Coast.

The Plaintiffs claim that BP was negligent and reckless in dumping toxic dispersant chemicals on and adjacent to their properties. Since the spill began, BP has dumped millions of gallons of dispersant chemicals, either underwater, by boat or by air, to sink the crude oil to the bottom of the ocean. One of the chemicals used, called Corexit 9500, is considered 4 times more toxic than sweet crude oil. Because of its toxicity to humans and marine environments, the United Kingdom has banned its use.

The Plaintiffs claim their breathing and gastrointestinal problems, as well as the widespread respiratory problems being experienced by people on the Gulf Coast, are directly related to BP's use of the toxic chemicals.

This suit alleges the Defendants are liable to the Plaintiffs and the Class for negligence and wanton misconduct, as well as nuisance, trespass, battery and medical monitoring.
