Denied or Appealed Your BP Oil Spill Claim?
Business Attorneys Handling Over 3,000 BP Claims
The BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill was a monumental disaster on multiple fronts: it killed and injured several people, it devastated the ecosystem and it caused businesses across the Gulf Shore to suffer severe economic losses. Hotels and others in the hospitality industry noticed a sudden nosedive in tourism after the BP news made national headlines.

How Can I Get Compensation for Gulf Oil Claims?
In response to the immense damage throughout the Gulf Shore, the oil company created the BP Deepwater Horizon Economic & Property Damages Settlement to administer funds to those affected. Attorneys for those harmed negotiated a settlement with BP that paid claimants in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Florida and parts of Texas.
BP doled out portions of the settlement to those with valid oil spill claims. These claims are for Business Economic Loss, or BELs. However, BP started appealing nearly every claim filed, despite their validity. It also paid claimants less than what they really deserved. BP filed motions, briefs and appeals against the settlement, the same settlement it helped create. It even filed an injunction that halted payouts for a year. Eventually the injunction was lifted, the Supreme Court ruled against BP, and those harmed by the oil spill could once again begin collecting BP settlements.
Despite the fact that the settlement has a section that penalizes BP for making “frivolous appeals” when the original claims are completely valid, it still does everything in its power to deny meritorious claims.
