BP Oil Spill Claims
In 2010, BP’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded in the Gulf of Mexico, killing several people and causing what is believed to be the biggest accidental oil spill in history. According to estimates, nearly 5 million barrels of oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico, causing countless people and businesses to be dramatically affected. Sadly, even many years since this incident, the full extent of the damage caused by this oil spill is still unknown.
However, because of the role BP played in this oil spill and the substantial harm it has caused, individuals and businesses that have been negatively impacted by the oil spill may be entitled to receive compensation from the Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program. For those who suffered losses because of the spill, this compensation is likely critical to recovering from and repairing the damages it caused, and our team at Pohl & Berk, LLP, is dedicated to helping those affected by the spill pursue the financial assistance they need through the settlement program.
Compensation for BP Oil Spill Claims
Through the Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program, over $1 billion has been paid to individuals and businesses in need of compensation for damages resulting from the 2010 oil spill. Even now, years later, claims continue to be filed as victims pursue the financial assistance they need to move past the effects of this disaster. Through the fund, victims of the oil spill have been able to secure compensation to help pay for:
- Property damage
- Revenue loss
- Costs of spill cleanup
Obtaining compensation through the Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program may be critical to repairing your property or home as an individual or even remaining open as a business, making it essential for those looking to file a claim to discuss their situation with an experienced attorney.
