How to Know if You Qualify for Compensation

Thousands of people were directly affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and millions more were indirectly affected, through the loss of income or marine life on which they depended. Many people have not applied for benefits or compensation that they may be due in the aftermath of the Gulf spill, but there is still time to consider your options. If you are unsure whether or not you qualify for compensation, it is strongly advisable to consult with an attorney.

If you or someone you know has suffered losses attributable to the effects of the oil spill, you might be able to recover financial compensation to address these effects. Contact the Gulf oil spill attorneys of Williams Hart today by calling 800-821-1544 to learn more about your legal rights and options.

Who May Qualify

It may seem difficult to know if you qualify for compensation after the Gulf oil spill, which is why the counsel of a lawyer can be beneficial. To get you started on exploring your eligibility, consider the following indicators that you may be eligible:

  • You lost income as a result of the oil spill
  • Your home or business was damaged as a result of the oil spill
  • You suffered other financial loss as a result of the oil spill
  • You were indirectly affected by the oil spill, as in the case of fishermen affected by the loss of marine life
  • Your property was damaged as a result of the oil spill

This list is not comprehensive, but may get you on the right track to exploring your eligibility for compensation if you have been affected by the BP oil spill.
