Removal Costs

Since the BP oil spill began on April 20, 2010, researchers estimate that between 500,000 and 4,000,000 gallons of oil have been leaking into the Gulf of Mexico every day.  Despite round-the-clock cleanup efforts, oil has begun to reach islands and beaches from Louisiana to Florida, and the problem is only expected to grow. Many families and businesses are now facing a long and costly cleanup process.

If you have been forced to remove oil from your residential or commercial property, you may be able to pursue compensation for your cleanup expenses. To learn more about your legal rights, call the knowledgeable Gulf Coast oil spill attorneys of Williams Hart at 800-821-1544.

The Costs of Oil Removal

When spilled oil washes up on beaches, it is not just a cosmetic problem. Oil can contaminate water, soil, and seafood, potentially causing serious health problems for entire communities. In addition, the recent oil spill has been devastating for the native plants and animals of the Gulf Coast region.

Unfortunately, removing oil from one’s property is a labor intensive and costly process. Oil and tar balls must be carefully cleaned from sand, rocks, grass, and structures. Some aspects of this cleanup, such as the handling of wildlife or toxic materials, require the assistance of certified professionals. Specialized equipment may also be required for some cleanup procedures.

For the average family or business, covering these costs can be challenging. No one should have to face financial hardship due to another party’s careless actions. Our BP oil spill removal costs lawyers are committed to helping victims of property damage caused by the oil spill seek justice.
