Oil Spill Claim Statistics

The Gulf Coast Claims Facility, or GCCF, was founded to distribute compensation to those affected by the Gulf of Mexico oil spill that occurred in April of 2010. Unfortunately, though, not everyone has received the help they need to fully recover from the oil spill. The GCCF has wrongfully denied many claims, but there are legal steps you can take to fight back for the compensation you deserve.

The Gulf oil spill devastated many industries and individuals along the Gulf coast. If you or your business suffered following the spill, you need to file a claim with the GCCF. If you have already filed a claim and it was rejected, contact the Gulf Coast denied oil spill claim attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-821-1544 to learn more about appealing the decision.

Facts Regarding Oil Spill Claims

The GCCF provides regular reports regarding oil spill claims statistics. Some important information to note includes:

  • $20 billion was set aside for oil spill claims
  • Approximately 540,000 claimants have filed following the spill
  • Individuals filed around 425,000 of the claims, while about 115,000 were filed by businesses
  • As of September 2011, only an estimated 209,000 claimants have been reimbursed

Sadly, many people who had legitimate claims to compensation were rejected by the GCCF. With 20 billion dollars at their disposal, there is no reason for the GCCF to wrongfully deny your claim.
