Following the explosion on the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, nearly five million gallons of crude oil was released into Gulf Coast waters, permanently polluting the natural environment and causing billions of dollars in damages to individuals and businesses.
The Deepwater Horizon Economic Claims Center (DHECC) was designed to assist those who suffered economic losses resulting from spill. Unfortunately, after nearly four years and a virtually unlimited budget, tens of thousands of legitimate claims are still no closer to receiving payment. The deadline for to file new claims was June 8, 2015. Perhaps you filed a claim but are now receiving endless notices from the DHECC. Or, perhaps you received an award that was far less than you anticipated. At Jason J. Joy & Associates, P.L.L.C. we deal with these situations every day, and we know how to push back.
Referrals and Assistance in Evaluating a Claim
Nearly 400,000 claims were filed in the BP oil spill settlement, and nearly 100,000 remain unresolved. In some cases the DHECC has effectively denied the claim by issuing a seemingly-endless series of vague and repetitive “Incompleteness Notices.” Other times the DHECC has issued an “Eligibility Notice,” but the compensation figure is vastly lower than the actual losses suffered by the business. Neither of these outcomes is acceptable, and you don’t have to settle for less than you deserve.
