Financial Compensation For Lost Income
FREE BP Claim Reviews Throughout Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
When the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig exploded in April 2010, the millions of gallons of oil that spilled into the Gulf of Mexico as a result led to the largest environmental disaster to threaten property owners, businesses, and entire industries in the Gulf states – including Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida – and across the United States. Two years later, the fishing and restaurant industries continue to suffer from a loss of business and profits, as do local business owners in Texas whose livelihood has been severely affected by the devastating BP oil spill. Unfortunately, those seeking compensation for the BP oil spill through the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) have faced additional trials, as claims for compensation have been unfairly delayed and even denied. If your business in Texas has been adversely affected by the Deepwater Horizon disaster, contact our experienced BP oil spill attorneys at Bandas Law Firm today to learn about the new BP oil spill settlement process intended to compensate victims of the devastating oil spill.
Industries Affected Most by the Oil Spill
A number of industries in Texas and along the Gulf Coast were adversely affected by the Deepwater Horizon explosion and the catastrophic oil spill that followed. As a result of the devastating environmental disaster, fragile ecosystems, fish populations and important industries continue to struggle, even two years later. Industries in Texas and other states affected by the oil spill potentially entitled to oil spill damages include:
- Commercial fishermen
- Restaurant and bar owners and employees
- Seafood processors
- Vacation rental property and hotel owners
- Commercial shrimpers
- Oyster business owners and employees
Settlement for BP Oil Spill Victims
The Gulf Coast Claims Facility was the administrative program put in place by the Obama administration shortly after the BP oil spill took place, intended as a means of compensating victims affected by the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Unfortunately, the GCCF was extremely slow and inefficient in its payment of claims, and was widely criticized for unfairly denying legitimate BP oil spill settlement claims or offering settlements far below what claimants were entitled to. In June 2012, a new process of compensating BP oil spill victims was put in place, establishing eighteen claims processing centers throughout the five Gulf states affected by the disaster, and developing specific claims forms for a variety of economic and financial claims associated with the oil spill.
The Economic & Property Damages Settlement will resolve certain economic loss and property damage claims filed by victims of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, including those harmed in one or more of the following ways:
- Business economic loss
- Start-up business economic loss
- Failed business economic loss
- Seafood compensation program
- Individual economic loss
- Individual periodic vendor or festival vendor economic loss
- Coastal real property damage
- Wetlands real property damage
- Subsistence loss
- Real property sales loss
- Vessel physical damage
- VoO charter payment
