How to Fight a Denied Oil Spill Claim

Hundreds of thousands of people were affected by the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Although BP’s Gulf Coast Claims Facility is aware of the extensive damage that this tragedy caused, they are still hesitant to honor many oil spill claims from affected individuals and families. If your business or home has been damaged due to the oil spill, you should not have to contend with frustrating claim denials.

If you suffered a financial loss due to the oil spill yet your claim has been denied, contact the experienced Gulf Coast oil spill attorneys of Williams Hart today by calling 800-821-1544. Our lawyers are committed to fighting for our clients’ rights and earning them the compensation that they need if they have been affected by the Gulf oil spill.

Steps You Can Take

The Gulf Coast Claims Facility, or GCCF, can be stingy when it comes to paying for damages caused by the oil spill. Often, people filing claims for assistance with oil spill-related losses have to contend with this frustration. Some steps you can take to help increase your chances of initial approval include:

  • Correctly filing claim
  • Completely filling out claim paperwork
  • Not exaggerating your loss / damage
  • Hiring legal assistance
  • Fighting a rejected claim

An experienced attorney can help you fight back against wrongfully denied claims, and having this help can be much easier and less stressful than trying to fight the GCCF alone.
