BP ordered to cover Haliburton for oil spill

Posted on February 1st, 2012 No Comments

This Tuesday a United States judge ruled that BP will cover the costs of eventual claims that will be presented towards Halliburton in regards to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

BP still has plans to introduce evidence against Halliburton showing fraud, and the judge in the case stated that if the evidence held up then it could overrule the indemnity ruling. BP will be subjected to punitive damages claims that could cost billions of dollars in payouts.

It has been estimated that BP stands to pay close to $25 million in damages to individual civil and criminal lawsuits against them.

The Gulf of Mexico oil spill had devastating results on tourism and residential property. If your oil spill claim was denied, you need experienced representation on your side in order to gain the compensation that you deserve.
