Hogan v. BP, et al. (Exposure to Corexit)

Commercial diver David Hogan claims exposure to chemical dispersants BP used in the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill is causing him a variety of health problems. Hogan sued several companies, including BP, NALCO Company, which made the Corexit oil dispersant, and Halliburton. Hogan claims that after the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded on April 20, 2010, BP injected millions of gallons of Corexit into the Gulf. Between June and November 2010, Hogan performed commercial diving work in the oil- and Corexit-contaminated Gulf. He claims a BP health and safety official falsely assured him he was safe.
