Two BP Oil Settlement Groups Created
On May 2, 2012 there were two different groups of claimants created that would be provided compensation through two different class action settlements. Then on May 8, 2012, the U.S. District Court of the Eastern District of Louisiana made an important announcement for the claimants residing or owning property in Louisiana. The court-ordered Notice Program was initiated to inform people and businesses about the BP oil spill settlements.
BP Oil Spill Claimants may now receive compensation in one or both of the BP settlement programs:
BP Oil Spill Economic and Property Damages Settlement - This settlement agreement may compensate people and/or businesses who suffered economic or property damage as a result of the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill. Every business located in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or certain counties in Texas and Florida is potentially eligible for compensation. Every individual who at any time between April 20, 2010 and April 16, 2012, lived in, worked in, were offered and accepted work in, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, or certain counties in Texas and Florida is potentially eligible for compensation. If you suffered damages in any of the following categories, you may be eligible for compensation under this settlement.
Seafood Compensation - Compensation for commercial fisherman, seafood crew, and seafood vessel owners in the Gulf of Mexico who suffered economic damage as a result of the BP Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill
