Types of Oil Spill Claims

The class action settlement has 12 separate economic and property damage claim types. It can be a struggle for a business to figure out what claim (or claims) are applicable. Each claim has different rules, procedures, and formulas. The DHCC requires each claimant to file a separate claim form for each claim type.  It is not unusual for one claimant to have 3 or 4 different claims.  Each claim has unique rules and documentation requirements, and each requires an experienced team of CPAs and lawyers to ensure the claimant is being treated fairly.
