With today’s Supreme Court ruling, BP can no longer avoid the payment of claims. After two years attacking and delaying the very settlement they agreed to, compensation payments to those affected by the BP Oil Spill will stop being delayed and should start flowing at a much faster rate.
If you haven’t filed a business claim yet, the deadline is pending but, it’s not too late! In fact, only 50% of eligible BP business claims have been filed as of Oct. 2014 according to the Legal Examiner.
This means only HALF of our local businesses, despite direct damage because of the BP Oil Spill, have even filed for compensation under the settlement.
If you are a local business owner, but don’t know if you qualify, talk to a lawyer as soon as possible about your economic losses. The process to file is easy. All you need is past tax returns and bank statements.
