On Behalf of | Feb 26, 2014 | Tampa Business BP Oil Spill Claim

The Deepwater Horizon Economic and Property Damages Settlement was established to compensate people adversely affected by the BP oil spill of 2010. The fund is in place to resolve claims of economic loss. Businesses and residents located in the coastal areas of Sarasota, Manatee, Pinellas, Hillsborough, Charlotte, DeSoto, Lee and Collier Counties who experienced business economic loss, business failure, start-up business economic loss and individual economic loss are encouraged to consider filing a BP oil claim for compensation.

You may qualify to file a BP business claim if you own or operate any of the following types of businesses:

  • Retail store
  • Medical practice
  • Dental practice
  • Construction or remodeling
  • Charter business
  • Vacation guide
  • Restaurant
  • Hotel
  • Real estate agent

How much compensation am I entitled to?

Damages will theoretically be based upon the total loss of revenue, decrease in variable profit and loss of future revenue growth during the months following the oil spill in 2010. Actual damages are determined based on an analysis of changes in variable profit compared to other benchmark periods. The calculations are formulaic and best explained by a capable Tampa BP oil claim attorney.
