You or your business may have a claim against BP / Deepwater Horizon that is allowable under the settlement terms of Deepwater Horizon Court Supervised Settlement Program. Effective June 4, 2012, the court sponsored settlement claims program began taking claims from individuals and businesses in certain counties in Texas for a broad range of economic loss and property damage related to the BP / Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Valid claims will be paid as they are approved.

Even if you filed a previous claim, whether or not you or your business was denied or even paid, you or your business may still qualify for an additional settlement. If you are an individual who works for a qualifying business you may be entitled to an economic claim. If you helped with the cleanup you may be entitled to a claim and additional medical care.

If you have a medical claim related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, you could get benefits from a class action settlement. The Medical Class includes clean-up workers and certain people who resided in specific geographic areas in coastal and wetlands areas along the Gulf Coast during specific periods in 2010. Some of the benefits include payments to qualifying people for certain acute (short-term) and chronic (ongoing) medical conditions occurring after exposure to oil or chemical dispersants, and provision of periodic medical examinations to qualifying people. Benefits will be provided only after the Court grants final approval and any appeals are resolved.

The Economic and Property Damages Settlement (“E&PD Settlement”) makes payments for the following types of claims: seafood compensation, economic damage, loss of subsistence, vessel physical damage, vessels of opportunity charter payment, coastal real property damage, wetlands real property damage, and real property sales damage. There is no limit on the total dollar amount of the E&PD Settlement; all qualified claims will be paid.

If you feel you have been adversely affected in any way because of the BP / Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, it is extremely important that you contact our offices as soon as possible to determine if your potential claim will be eligible for payment by BP. The deadline to submit most E&PD claims will be April 22, 2014 or six months after the E&PD Settlement becomes effective, whichever is later. However, there is an earlier deadline to submit E&PD seafood compensation claims, so it is highly recommended that your claim form(s) be submitted promptly.

Covered Business and Individuals in the following industries may be covered by the BP Settlement. If you have a question as to whether you or your business is covered, please contact our office immediately for a free evaluation.
