Where do BP oil spill claims stand?
Don’t wait! Claims are still being filed. It’s not too late to file your BP oil spill claim. Deadline to file is April 20, 2014
According to ABC News, BP expects the dollar amounts for the multi-billion-dollar settlement for businesses’ and residents’ damages claims to exceed the $7.8 billion they predicted last year. The reason is that BP has paid claims so far at higher than average rates. Claims Administrator Patrick Juneau interpreted settlement terms to calculate awards for businesses’ revenue and expenses before and after the spill. The judge upheld Patrick Juneau’s interpretation despite BP’s arguments to the contrary. BP also faces potential fines of up to $18 billion in penalties based on the Clean Water Act, depending on whether the judge rules that gross negligence was involved. If you believe you have a claim, by consulting a Pensacola oil spill attorney for a claim evaluation, you may find legal recourse is still available.
While the Gulf Coast Claims Facility is no longer taking claims for the BP Oil Spill that occurred on April 20, 2010, Deepwater Horizon Claims Center continues to process all types of claims. An experienced Pensacola oil spill lawyer can help you fight for the compensation you deserve.
