Florida Oil Spill Claims
Many Florida residents depend heavily on the Gulf of Mexico to support themselves and their families. Industries as diverse as fishing, tourism, and real estate all rely on the health of the Gulf. Therefore, the explosion at the Deepwater Horizon oil rig, which released millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, caused many in Florida to experience substantial financial losses. However, successful oil spill claims may be able to help make up for these damages.
Homeowners and business owners who have suffered economic consequences as a result of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill may be eligible to receive financial compensation for their losses. The Deepwater Horizon Claims Center (DHCC), which BP established in a settlement with the victims of the disaster, has considerable funds to help repay Gulf residents for damages caused by the spill. With the help of an experienced attorney from Williams Kherkher, individuals in Florida may be able to pursue oil spill claims for their losses.
