Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 21, 2011
Hundreds of thousands of individuals and businesses negatively impacted by the environmental disaster of the 2010 BP Gulf Oil spill and its aftermath are continuing to grapple with its far-reaching consequences. The Houston, Texas law firm of Danziger & De Llano, LLP has established the BP Gulf Coast Claims Center Assistance website at http://www.bpclaims.com/ to aid oil spill victims in pursuing their claims.
The site contains information and news designed to keep victims of the BP Gulf Coast oil spill informed about new developments and assists them in pursuing gulf coast claims, including appeals of denied BP claims.
Some of those seeking redress have filed BP claims for compensation. The complex process has led many to seek assistance. The Gulf Coast Claims Facility ("GCCF") is the official way for individuals and businesses to file claims for costs and damages incurred as a result of the oil discharges.
So far, the fund has paid out approximately $4.7 billion to 198,475 claimants. There are, however, 522,506 who have filed a claim, with many of these individuals having multiple claims, such as claims for property damage, personal injury, lost wages or lost business income. These together total almost one million claims and thousands of claims continue to be filed.
BP Claims may be filed by: employees and boat owners who rely on the Gulf Coast and lost income, homeowners and other property owners who suffered direct damages or a reduction in value, boat owners with decreased income, hotel and resort owners with lost revenue and persons who suffered medical injury from the spill itself or from cleanup efforts.
