Judge Overseeing BP Settlement Orders Website Owners To Add Disclaimers


The Internet is filled with misleading websites about making money from home and much more. With so many websites offering help to potential BP Claimants, such as accounting firms and law firm, but they need to make sure that their websites aren’t misleading.

Judge Barbier, who is overseeing the BP Settlement Program, addressed this very issue recently when he ordered the owner of two claims-related websites to post clear disclaimers on the site stating they were not ‘official court-supervised sites.”

Potential claimants need to know that the Court-Supervised Settlement Program does in fact maintain an official site with information and the ability to submit claim information and documentation online. The site is: http://www.deepwaterhorizoneconomicsettlement.com/index.php

Other sites might offer important information and resources about the BP spill, but a claim can only be submitted through the official website.

The take home message, make sure you visit the official site that has the capability to accept your claim and information.
