Deepwater Horizon Settlement Stays Released

The BP Settlement lifts Stays

deepwater horizon settlement  Most people don`t know that certain groups of claims were on hold, Contractors, Farmers, Marketing Firms, Aquaculture Farming, Attorneys, CPA`s, Doctors, and quite a few more industries were just stalled. It was by design, BP and the Fund, were stalling these claims, as they sorted things out, and today Judge Barbier put a stop to it. The Deepwater Horizon Settlement led by Patrick Juneau with the help of Judge Barbier went to bat for the people. The people won.

This process has not been easy for many, about 2 days ago we were given a list of these stayed claims, it was something we thought was happening, but we had not seen it in black and white, this was an official list, it should have been made  available to the general public. We are publishing it here..The Stay List is at the end of this post.

This is what we are seeing from the Fund, they are paying claims. We have long advocated for the settlement, and they needed time to get all of the wheels on the bus, the wheels are on the bus. We are seeing a rhythm to the  claims process, claims are getting paid on a regular basis.

I wish I could say this is happening for everyone, but I can`t. I do believe that certain firms with credibility with the Fund are getting preferential treatment because they know that the Claims being presented are credible and have their documentation all together.

As a fact some firms are getting claims paid regularly, some are not, I think is based on the performance of those firms, and how they prepare BP Settlement Claims. The fact is some know what they are doing, and some just don`t have a clue, and that is recognized by the Fund. Now this is conjecture I am not a lawyer, but I know most of the players in this, and it`s just the way it is as I see it.

OPA Claims may still have Time to File

There is a possible exception on the OPA deadlines, which could give certain businesses some extra time to submit a claim – OPA states “3 years from the time people we aware of damages” with the oil spill occurring in 2010, time is of the essence.  Basically if you did not realize you were impacted by the Oil Spill till a year after the Oil Spill, the argument is you still have time to file under OPA, and some Attorneys are ready to make that argument.
To do this, they need to know when, why and how they realized you were financially impacted  (mainly focused on justification of “when”)
They need monthly P&L statements for the years of 2009, 2010, and 2011.
If you want to contact them please fill out the form to the right.
We will forward your information to them.
There is no guarantee here, but the argument make sense. and the BP Settlement
