The BP Settlement – Good News for Getting Paid
On March 2, 2012 BP agreed to place $7.8 Billion dollars under court supervision of Federal Judge Carl Barbier in order to compensate claimants. The most important aspect of this settlement is the fact that there is NO cap on the amount that BP will have to pay. If the $7.8 Billion is inadequate to pay amounts owed to businesses and individuals who have incurred losses as a result of the oil spill, BP will have to put more money
Settlements will be Faster & Fairer
The GCCF was not an efficient way to pay claimants. Not only was the process extremely slow, but many viable claims were being unfairly denied. In addition, when the settlement offers were made they were generally ridiculously low. We believe that the new Deepwater Horizon settlement managed by attorneys and under court supervision will result in faster payments. We also believe that businesses and individuals will begin to receive fair offers that truly reflect the amount of damages and losses that have occurred.
