Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill Claims
The Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010 devastated the lives and businesses of individuals throughout the Gulf area. In order to compensate those who were affected by this tragic accident, BP, which managed the well involved in the spill, agreed to process and pay out claims from Gulf residents documenting the losses they suffered as a result of the spill.
Unfortunately, the process of successfully filing a claim with the Deepwater Horizon Claims Center (DHCC) has proven to be exceedingly complicated, as BP is widely exercising its right to deny claims over $25,000, preventing Gulf residents from receiving the compensation they need and deserve. Although denied claimants have the right to appeal their decisions, there are numerous legal requirements and tight deadlines that must be met to successfully file an appeal. For these reasons, legal representation is essential when pursuing this type of claim.
