Andrew Restuccia notes the recent spike in denied oil spill claims. More than 20,000 claimants around the gulf have been denied in recent weeks.

More than a fifth of the total claims denied by the Gulf Coast Claims Facility — 4,618 — originated in Florida.

More than 41,000 of Florida’s claims require additional documentation; of those, nearly 27,000 claims have no documentation whatsoever, according to the latest statistics from the facility, which took over the process from BP in August. That means thousands more denials may be imminent.

Has your claim been denied? Have you been told to provide further documentation? I’d be interested in hearing from you at [email protected].
