Many businesses, including yours, may be entitled to compensation from your losses since the BP Oil Spill.

In April 2010, the oil rig ‘Deepwater Horizon’ owned by BP suffered an explosion and subsequently sank, claiming the lives of 11 workers. For the following three months, nearly 5 million barrels of oil gushed from the sea floor. The event is often considered the largest accidental marine oil spill in history. Since the spill, the Gulf coastline has suffered ecologically and economically from Florida to Texas, Louisiana suffering particularly due to its coastal exposure and extensive tourist industry.

The BP rig explosion caused the worst environmental disaster in U, S. history. While the Gulf of Mexico may be back according to most environmentalists, there are thousands of businesses along the Gulf Coast that have not been compensated for their losses.

Now, because of the settlement confected by and between all of the parties to the litigation that has ensued, there is a fund of money set aside to pay for economic business losses and you DON’T even have to prove that the spill caused those losses!! If you can show a drop in gross revenues in 2010 compared to 2011, you may be eligible for money compensation.
