The deadline to file a BP claim for economic losses pursuant to the 2012 Deepwater Horizon Economic & Property Damages Settlement is June 8, 2015. The Settlement, with its objective, data-based causation tests, has been judicially approved by final judgment.
If you reside or operate a business located in the gray, yellow, red or purple areas on the following BP settlement claim map, you have the right to file a claim. If you submit a claim form, all required information, and meet the formulas as approved by the Courts, you will qualify for an award. The average compensation value exceeds $100,000.
Of course, not every claim will be eligible, but you have the right to file and find out. After June 8, 2015, you lose that right.
It is advisable to begin preparing your claim well in advance. Do not procrastinate.
