Deepwater Horizon Gulf Disaster
The "BP Oil Spill" as it has commonly become known resulted in devastation and destruction -- both physically and financially -- to the entire Gulf Coast region. Millions of small business owners, families and individuals have seen the values of their businesses and their ability to generate an income diminish if not altogether disappear as a result of the BP Oil Spill.
Updated Court Monitored Settlement
There is good news for all potential BP settlement claimants! On March 2, 2012, BP was forced to create a fund of $7.8 billion that will be placed under court supervision of Federal Judge Carl Barbier. Interesting, there is NO cap placed the recovery amount for BP claimants. What that means is if BP needs to pay more than the $7.8 billion that has currently been set aside to compensate businesses and individuals who have incurred losses because of the oil spill, BP is obligated to place additional monies in the settlement fund.
Florida Businesses Affected
Florida property and business owners have had to face the reality created by the BP Oil Spill. To date, it is estimated that Florida business and property owners have suffered over $3 billion dollars, not to mention the effect on Florida Gulf Coast real estate values. And while the BP Oil Spill may have occurred in 2010, Floridians are still feeling the effect of the spill and still have rights to recover against the BP Oil Settlement Fund.
A non-exhaustive list of the types businesses that have been affected (and who might have a good BP claim) include:
- Amusement parks / Theme parks
