Louisiana Oil Spill Claims
When the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico suffered an explosion off the Louisiana coast in 2010, millions of residents throughout the area saw their lives and livelihoods devastated by the oil spill and its aftermath. Numerous property owners suffered substantial damages and cleanup costs, and many businesses experienced years of lost revenue or were even forced to shut down entirely as a result of the spill. Fortunately, though, BP has organized an oil spill claims center to handle the dispersal of compensation to these oil spill victims.
BP, which was operating the rig at the time of the explosion, has set up the Deepwater Horizon Claims Center (DHCC) to provide remuneration to those who suffered from the effects of the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. By filing a claim, victims may be able to recoup many or even all of their losses from this disaster. However, because of the complexity that these claims can entail, Louisiana residents may wish to entrust their oil spill claims to the knowledgeable legal team at Williams Kherkher.
