The oil spill is going on two months not. There are numerous reports that BP purposely avoided safety protocols in order to save money. The result of these decisions have caused the worst oil diaster in U.S. history far exceeding the leak by Exxon.
Leaders of BP met with President Obama to discuss the oil spill. Discussion revolved around the suspension of BP dividend payment and a committment of $20 billion for clean up and damages to local business who have suffered in the crisis. Experts are now saying that the liabilty of the company could even exceed $20 billion. It is uncertain on what the final tally will be after the company pays out all legitimate claims. Experts are even speculating that BP won't be able to survive after all is done. Clean up of the Gulf of Mexico can run in to years if not decades. There are still pockets of problems with Prince William Sound where the Exxon Valdez oil spill occured.
Although the employees of BP aren't financially responsible for the incident because of the liability protection of personal assets in forming a corporation. The company however is vulnerable to lawsuits due to its negligence in the matter. Although people are not usually liable, the CEO and leaders who made these decisions to avoid safety protocols may be criminally liable for their actions. So therefore liability protection may protect personal assets, individuals are still responsible for their actions.
