BP was recently approved to proceed with payment settlements regarding the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. Payments were temporarily paused after some of the oil spill victims expressed dissatisfaction over the settlement amount.
On Thursday, February 13 claimant appeals contesting the medical amount were released in a New Orleans U.S. Court of Appeals. Claimants of the medical settlement must have resided in beachfront areas within a half mile from the water or in wetland areas within one mile of the water in coastal sites in Louisiana, the Florida Panhandle, Mississippi, or Alabama th the time of the oil spill.
If you have been victimized by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, you could be entitled to receive payments from BP. The attorneys at Williams Hart help oil spill victims receive payments. Call (888) 220-0640 to speak with a member of our legal team today.
