The British Petroleum oil spill trial has resumed due to claims that the company was giving inaccurate information to federal officials about how much oil was spilled into the Gulf, according to an online article by CNN.
Depending on what is decided, British Petroleum may have to pay billions more in compensation for damages. If the company is found grossly negligent in their handling of the spill, they may be ordered to pay up to 4,300 USD per spilled barrel of oil.
Many companies and industries were damaged by the disaster. Unfortunately, complications like this may make it difficult for those harmed by the spill to gain compensation.
