Gulf Coast businesses looking to file damage claims related to the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil platform disaster are encouraged to file before the April 2014 deadline.
The deadline for the federal class action settlement claims for the 2010 BP oil spill is April 22, 2014, but Frank Miranda Attorneys at Law encourages Tampa Bay area residents to get their BP oil spill claim paperwork in order now. It is possible that some attorneys along the Gulf Coast will create a much earlier deadline for all new cases I the early fall in order to take care of current claims.
One of the reasons to have a licensed attorney handle your case is that if BP decides to appeal your claim, which it may do, then the claim representative must write an appeal and reexamine the numbers.
If your business was negatively impacted by the 2010 BP oil spill, it is vital that you consult with a lawyer to get the BP oil spill claim rolling before April 22, 2014. Contact Frank Miranda Attorneys at Law at 813.854.2637 to schedule an appointment to discuss your claim with us. Your consultation is free of charge.
