Settlement talks between BP and plaintiff group underway

Posted on February 29th, 2012 No Comments

The Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee represents oystermen, fishermen, restaurateurs, and hoteliers who claim that their businesses were damaged by the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill. They have filed a lawsuit against the oil company, BP, in order to gain damages and compensation for their loss of business.

According to reports, BP may be close to reaching a settlement with the committee, in order to avoid going to court. The lawsuit is set to begin in court on March 5. BP is considering using part of the $14 billion fund that they set up in order to benefit fishermen and businesses that were damaged during the oil spill to pay the settlement.

The trial was delayed by a week in order for settlement talks to be discussed between the two parties. Sources close to the case believe that a deal could be announced as early as this week.

If your oil spill claim was denied, you need experienced representation on your side in order to secure the compensation you deserve. Please contact the oil spill denied claims lawyers of Williams Hart by calling 800-821-1544 today.
