Oil Spill Residential Property Cleanup Claims

The explosion of the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in April of 2010 sent millions of gallons of oil into the sea. The oil and tar killed wildlife and damaged land in five states. The Gulf coast fishing industry suffered, the amount of tourism dropped significantly, and businesses struggled to stay afloat. The spilled oil also damaged residential property, which resulted in thousands of dollars spent cleaning up the mess.

Receiving Compensation for Residential Property Cleanup

Unfortunately, while tourists could escape the Gulf of Mexico after the oil spill, residents of this area were forced to contend with potentially toxic tar and sludge that washed ashore. Due to the large amount of residential property along the coastline, residents may have had to live in a damaged house, taking time off of work to attempt to repair the property. These victims deserve compensation.

With the oil spill cleanup claims, different types of properties are categorized in certain groups. Residential property is considered “real property.” If you are seeking compensation for residential property clean-up, you will need to file a “real property” damage claim. Compensation may be available for personal items that have been damaged, including houses, boats, fishing equipment, and automobiles as well as for lost wages due to time away from work.
