Four Questions to Consider

When you are looking to appeal your denied oil spill claim, you probably have many questions to ask your attorney. Four common questions to consider include:

Is the lawyer you initially met or spoke with negotiating your claim, or has it been passed off to a less-experienced subordinate?

If you are able to prove that you or your business suffered losses after the spill, you may be entitled to compensation for these financial damages.

#3: What Qualifies for Compensation?

The most common claims for compensation include property damage, lost rental property income, and lost business income due to the drop in tourism.

#4: Can I Appeal My Denied Claim?
