Property Owner Claims
Gulf Oil Spill Lawyer
There are a great number of individuals, families and businesses who have had extensive property damage from the BP oil spill. Many tried to get their claims resolved through the GCCF and had claims denied or were offered a settlement that was completely insufficient, considering the damages. The GCCF no longer handles these claims; if you have a claim that is still in process, you now must contact a BP claims attorney for assistance in filing your claim in court. The process is now managed through Federal Court and a team of attorneys, and is much more likely to get a fair result. It is important, however, that your claim is filed as early as possible, as there are thousands of claims in process, and it can take more time to recover compensation if you file at the end of the line.
