Currently, we are accepting claims for Recreational Subsistence Fisherman, and claims forBusiness Lost Income and Personal Lost Income.
Call us today so that you are not left behind and get the compensation you deserve!
One thing is certain: anyone who has been directly impacted by the BP Oil Spill should file a claim sooner rather than later, before the companies manage to somehow limit their liability and reduce their payouts. Individuals or businesses who wait too long to file a claim may find that the money is gone.
