Oil Spill Damages

What’s the correct measure of damages in a property damage case such as the Mayflower oil spill? Is it having new sod thrown on your lawn by Exxon Mobil? Are you supposed to be satisfied when the very old pipeline is repaired? The law says you’re entitled to the difference in fair market value immediately before and immediately after the rupture, plus incidental damages. If I had a house there, I’d demand they buy it!
