HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

If you were affected by the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill and you're having trouble filling out your claim form, help is on the way.

On Wednesday, Attorney General Luther Strange will stop by Cullman and Huntsville to help businesses and individuals sort through the filing process. He will help people to understand the eligibility and proof requirements you need to file a claim. BP says it has already paid out over $9-billion in individual and business claims.

The claim form is 17 pages long and has very detailed questions throughout it. Those questions range from a breakdown of damages as a result of the spill to loss of business in the wake of the spill. Whether you are filing a claim for personal loss or a loss of business, you will have to provide several forms of documentation.

AG Strange will provide a rundown of the filing process in Cullman from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce. That's located at 301 2nd Avenue Southwest.

He will then move on to Huntsville, where he will be talking with people from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce Huntsville/Madison County. A reservation is required and only the first 50 people will be admitted.
