Currently facing civil trial, BP is facing a plethora of charges and allegations. Aside from the trial, the Settlement assisting business economic losses remains in tact and unchanged. Paying out billions in damages, Gulf Coast company’s still have a chance to recover lost business.
The deadline to file a claim is early 2014. While this program is assisting thousands of businesses, it is time sensitive. Any claim filed incorrectly or incompletely will be returned for proper submission on an even tighter deadline. That being said, it is highly recommended that a potential claimant seek professional counsel.
BP is not required to inform those who may qualify for a Settlement that they may in fact have a valid claim. Additionally, there are a host of reservations business owners have regarding the spill. ERG is helping business owners address those reservations.
