BP Oil Spill Cases
Sugar Land Oil Spill Claims Attorney
On April 18, 2012, BP filed a comprehensive class action settlement in New Orleans federal court. The settlement now allows individuals and businesses who were previously rejected to submit new claims for compensation. It also allows claimants with pending claims to seek additional compensation.
The Court has established the Court Supervised Settlement Program (CSSP) to replace the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF). The CSSP is operating under new rules that are designed to cure many of the perceived deficiencies of the GCCF.
Certain claim types may be eligible for compensation, such as:
- Property damage claims
- Lost tourism revenue claims
- Lost rental property revenue claims
- Lost income claims
- Spill cleanup claims
Claims that were once rejected under the old program have better chances of receiving compensation now under the CSSP. The rules that govern CSSP are vastly different from GCCF, which is why it is important to consult with a lawyer on our team regarding your claim.
The CSSP & Oil Spill Losses
CSSP guidelines can be extremely complex. When you make your claim, BP's team of lawyers and CPA's will review and scrutinize each claim carefully. Claimants will need an experienced team to negotiate claims in their favor. What is good for one claimant is not necessarily good for another, and each claim is different.
