Oil Spill Fisheries Cleanup Claims

The explosion of the Deepwater Horizon was a shock, but, at the time, no one could predict just how much of an effect it would have on the environment and people along the Gulf coast. For days, oil spilled into the ocean, making it one of the worst environmental disasters the United States has ever seen. There are people at fault for this destruction, and they are being held financially responsible. However, not everyone who suffered due to this disaster has been given the compensation they deserve.

If you are facing high cleanup costs from the oil spill, yet your claim has been denied, it is not the end of the road. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can appeal this decision and fight to get financial compensation you need to help you through this difficult time. Contact the oil spill denied claim attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-821-1544 to learn more about appealing your denied claim.

The Costs of Fishery Cleanup

The fishing industry was one of the most devastated by the oil spill. Both fishermen who caught fish in the open water as well as those who owned fish farms along the coast suffered due to the spill. Some business losses related to fishery damage include:

  • Property damage
  • Boat damage
  • Loss of income
  • Death or damage to fish in farms

Facing these costs forced many people in the fishing industry to close their businesses. However, this damage is unacceptable, and those who have suffered due to the oil spill should be generously compensated.
