Oil Spill Business Property Cleanup Claims

The explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in April of 2010 will never be forgotten. The oil still clouding the waters of the Gulf of Mexico will be a reminder for years to come that oil company negligence directly led to devastation in the states along the Gulf. Over a year later, business owners are still struggling to overcome the damages. Cleaning up the oil spill was a costly necessity, and many business owners are still suffering from the costs of cleanup.

Although a fund was set up to help pay for the spill, not every business owner received compensation to cover the costs of cleanup. If your original claim was denied, contact the Gulf of Mexico denied oil spill claim attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-821-1544 to learn more about your rights.
