Property Damage & Oil Spill Claims

After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, businesses and residences alike suffered from property damage.

Examples of compensation that was awarded included:

  • Coastal Real Property Damage
  • Real Property Sales Damage
  • Vessel Physical Damage
  • Wetlands Real Property Damage

British Petroleum and the government also offered several types of economic damages including:

  • Business Economic Loss
  • Individual Economic Loss
  • Subsistence Loss
  • The Seafood Compensation Program
  • Vendor Compensation

Four years later, thousands are still affected who own property or earn their livelihood along the Gulf Coast.

Wondering if you can receive compensation?

After an oil spill, you could be entitled to property damages. Oil spills can cause oil to permeate a property and can pollute the air, resulting in exorbitant loss of revenue and clean-up costs. If your property was harmed by chemicals that were negligently released, you can fight for compensation.

Examples of industries and individuals who can sustain losses after an oil spill include:

  • Commercial Fishing Businesses
  • Docks & Marina Owners / Operators
  • Hotels
  • Real Estate Brokerage Firms
  • Rental Management Groups
  • Restaurants and Bars
  • Tourism Businesses
  • Waterfront Property Owners
