In April 2010, an explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico killed 11 workers and began one of the largest man-made natural disasters in history. After the explosion, an oil spill of epic proportions sent millions of barrels of oil into the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, killing wildlife, fouling coastlines, and affecting the economies of the Gulf Coast States.
In the months following the rig explosion, it was found through a series of investigations that the owners of the well, British Petroleum (BP), the owners of the rig, Transocean, and the company who performed the cement work on the rig, Halliburton, had all been at fault for errors that contributed to the rig explosion. The ensuing trial was intended to begin by apportioning blame amongst these three defendants.
By March 2012, BP and the lawyers for plaintiffs in the trial over the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico agreed to settle their class action case.
At the time, BP estimated that claims related to the oil spill would cost the company $7.8 billion, but did not make mention of any upper limit on the damages it would be paying. A company spokesperson said that BP had already paid $8 billion to claimants and had spent an additional $14 billion in clean-up efforts related to the oil spill.
This class action settlement is intended to compensate some hundreds of thousands of victims of the aftermath of the BP oil rig explosion. The settlement is to be fully funded by BP with no cap on the damages that the company will be responsible for paying.
Based on the terms of the court settlement, BP is obligated to pay out all eligible claims of damages.
The agreement is structured to resolve the vast majority of individual and business claims that have been brought forward since the spill. These claims include property damage, medical claims from injuries and economic loss due to the spill or the cleanup efforts subsequent to the spill.
While many have already received aid payments from the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF), this does not bar you from seeking compensation through the court settlement.
Any person or business who has suffered due to the BP oil spill may be entitled to compensation under the settlement and they are encouraged to seek legal representation.Review My Case Now
There is no question that the 2010 Deepwater Horizon BP oil rig spill had a massive harmful impact on a wide range of personal, business and natural assets.
Damage stretched across thousands of miles of the Gulf Coast and affected hundreds of thousands of individuals and businesses. BP has agreed to fully compensate all the victims of this disaster.
Time could be running out though. Under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, the federal statute which governs the BP oil spill, there is a 3-year statute of limitations on filing a claim.Review My Case Now
