Compensation for Property Damage
As a result of the Deepwater Horizon incident, many coastal areas were subjected to physical damage in the form of oil slicks and clean-up chemicals. Properties became blighted by the presence, appearance, and smell of the oil spill. Ecologically-sensitive areas were damaged in ways that may not become fully apparent for decades. In addition, the news of the oil spill created significant negative press coverage, which also impacted the value of properties along the Gulf Coast. Finally, the spill and clean-up effort resulted in significant inconveniences for property owners.
The BP oil spill settlement covers many different types of property damage, including:
- Lost rental income
- Lost use of property
- Diminished enjoyment of property
- Diminished value for property sold
- Inconvenience associated with clean-up
- Ecological damage to wetlands
Although a fairness hearing has been set for November, the judge is expected to issue a ruling on the settlement in early May and payments will begin soon after.
