Economic Recovery Group (ERG) is a full service law firm representing businesses and professionals throughout the Southeast who suffered direct or indirect economic losses after the April 20, 2010 BP oil spill

Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program

Many west coast businesses saw a decline in their revenue in 2010, or had to restructure to remain afloat, due to the trickle-down effects of the BP oil spill. Through this class action Settlement Program, BP has acknowledged these economic harms, and is working to provide financial recompense to Gulf coast businesses with valid claims.

With only a short time left before it ends, the Appeals Court recently reaffirmed and upheld the propriety of the Program that was agreed to by all parties. The Program includes complex and objective formulas that determine whether companies qualify, and to what extent they should be compensated for the direct or indirect economic losses they suffered. However, many business owners and professionals still have yet to act to or simply do not know that they are specifically included within the terms of the settlement agreement, and that they may well have valid claims.

The fact is, it was BP’s negligence that brought us to this point. Businesses now must act to allow BP to compensate them for their losses as future claims will forever be barred.
