NEW ORLEANS – A Terrebonne Parish man is seeking damages from BP from an alleged reduction in economic earnings as a result of the Deepwater Horizon spill.

Mark R. Rodgers filed a complaint on June 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against BP Exploration & Production Inc., BP America Production Co., BP PLC, et al. citing the Oil Pollution Act.

According to the complaint, plaintiff is an owner of Belle Chase company Ultra Wireline Services, which regularly provided support and services to the oil and gas industry. The plaintiff alleges that he was not compensated for the economic losses he sustained from the BP Oil Spill that occurred on April 20, 2010. The plaintiff holds BP Exploration & Production Inc., BP America Production Co., BP PLC, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly either denied plaintiff’s claim or failed to accept or sufficiently respond to his demand within 90 days.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks actual and exemplary damages, plus legal interest, costs and disbursements for this action, attorneys’ and experts’ fees and all further relief as the court deems just and proper. He is represented by Lawrence J. Centola III and Christopher H. Carbine of Martzell, Bickford & Centola in New Orleans.
