Southern California Oil Spill Lawyers

Sign indicating beach is closed - Huntington Beach Closed 2021 Oil Spill

The October 2021 oil pipeline leak off the coast of Huntington Beach, CA has caused at least 126,000 gallons of crude oil to spill into the ocean. Responsible parties so far are the pipeline company and the shipping company whose anchor punctured the pipeline.

No matter who is to blame, whether it is the pipeline operator or a ship which may have struck the pipeline, it is clear the spill is the result of negligence. Oil pipeline operators have a duty of care to safely operate and maintain their pipelines to prevent oil leaks. Ship crews also have a duty to safely navigate around oil pipelines and to not drop anchor near pipelines.
