The Williams Kherkher law firm has been involved in the claims process for victims of the BP oil spill since the very start, and that depth of experience has paid off in helping clients get the compensation they need for their resulting losses. In fact, when comparing the results that Williams Kherkher has obtained for clients to the national average, the difference is clear.

Williams Kherkher has launched http://www.myspillclaim.com, which is the only no cost, online causation calculator available to not-for-profits and businesses that would like to see if they are eligible to file a claim. All not-for-profits and businesses anywhere in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama are potentially eligible, as well as the upper Texas coast and the western counties of Florida.

According to a June, 2013 report compiled by Claims Administrator Pat Juneau (http://www.deepwaterhorizoneconomicsettlement.com/docs/Court_Status_Report_No_061113.pdf), claims filed as part of the Deepwater Horizon economic settlement have an average 47% rate for receiving incompleteness notices and a 34% rate for receiving denial notices on the national level. In comparison, claims for Williams Kherkher clients had only a 5% rate for incompleteness notices and a remarkable 1% rate for denial notices. As these numbers show, Williams Kherkher clients are dramatically more likely to receive compensation than the average filer.

Additionally, Williams Kherkher has had considerable success in defending clients against appeals filed by BP challenging claimants’ eligibility to receive compensation. Nationally, individuals whose claims were appealed by BP prevailed in only 15% of cases, while businesses whose claims were appealed prevailed in 49% of cases. For Williams Kherkher clients, however, the success rate was substantially higher: 90% for individuals and 96% for businesses.

As all of these comparisons should indicate, clients of Williams Kherkher have had remarkable success in filing their claims, both relative to the clients of other firms and in absolute terms. Contrary to BP’s complaints about frivolous claims and rubber-stamped applications, the fact is that it remains difficult to get compensation for the damages caused by the BP oil spill. Fortunately, with skillful legal representation, claimants can dramatically improve the likelihood that their claim will be approved.
