Lost Rental Property Revenue Claims
The 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion and the ensuing release of millions of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico continues to have a devastating effect on the lives and livelihoods of individuals in Gulf coast states. In particular, property owners who relied on rental revenue to support themselves have seen their incomes heavily diminished as a result of the disaster.
Fortunately, rental property owners affected by the spill may be entitled to receive compensation for the damages they have suffered. BP, the company responsible for the spill, has set aside a substantial sum to pay claims brought by those who have suffered losses as a result of the spill, including losses from reduced rental property revenue. However, BP’s legal team has imposed tough standards and timelines when it comes to filing claims or appeals, making it difficult to secure the compensation you need without the help of a well-prepared lawyer.

For many in the Gulf region, rental properties serve as a primary source of income. However, property owners have seen a loss of revenue due to both property damage and a drop in tourism. Rather than bear the burden of this lost revenue alone, victims of the Gulf oil spill have the option of filing for compensation from BP.
