BP Oil Spill FAQ

If you are an employee of or own a business that is in a zone determined to have been effected by the April 20, 2010 BP Oil Spill, (essentially all Florida counties bordering the Gulf of Mexico), you may be entitled to compensation. You are not too late to make a claim.

These include but are not limited to:



All cases are handled on a contingency fee and cost basis. You pay no fee or costs unless we achieve a settlement on your behalf. Call us today at 941.552.4616.


I.????How Do I Know If I am Eligible to Participate in the Compensation Fund?
If you are able to show a drop in income during the year 2010, following the April 20th disaster, then you may meet eligibility requirements to participate in the compensation fund set aside by BP to pay claims. We will review your financial documentation, in conjunction with accounting professionals, in order to present your claim for losses suffered in the strongest manner possible.

II.????How Long Does the Process Take?
Once all documentation is submitted in support of your claim, you may expect an answer in as few as ninety (90) days. The Deepwater Horizon Claims Center is obligated by law to timely respond to your claim for damages. We will process, submit, and monitor your claim to ensure that it is handled on a timely basis.

III.????Is There Any Up-Front Out of Pocket Cost to Me or My Business?
No. Our law firm handles claims on a contingency fee and cost basis. You pay no fees or costs unless and until a recovery is made on your behalf. Fees and costs are simply deducted from the recovery at the time a settlement is obtained.
