Oil Spill Home Damage Lawsuits

Homes along the Gulf Coast face the threat of both physical damage and loss of value due to the massive oil spill plaguing the Gulf of Mexico. From Louisiana to Florida, residents have reported sightings of oil sheen and tar balls washing up on the usually pristine beaches. Not only is the oil unsightly, but it can also cause significant damage to homes nearby. If you are a home owner and have been affected by the oil spill, you may have legal grounds to file a lawsuit for damages.

Types of Damage

One of the most obvious types of damage that home owners may experience is physical damage from the oil pollution. Homes and property along the coast may become littered with masses of tar, which can be difficult and costly to clean up. These sticky accumulations of oil can also leave stains that require considerable effort to remove.

You may have to pay out of pocket to cover clean up and repair costs to your property, or you may find that it is more difficult to rent out your property because of the damage. Oil pollution in the area can also cause a home to drop in value, even if the home itself has not been physically damaged by the spill.

Financial Compensation

If you own property along the Gulf Coast and your home has been damaged, lost value, or lost rental revenue because of oil contamination, you have the right to pursue a lawsuit for compensation. No home owner should have to pay for damages caused by someone else’s negligence. Our oil spill lawsuit attorneys understand the hardship that oil pollution can cause, and we are committed to fighting on your behalf for the financial compensation that you deserve.
