BP Appeals to the 5th Circuit
This means that many different types of claims could be excluded from the economic settlement.
BP has asked the 5th circuit to expedite the hearing and they have agreed.
The 5th circuit has decided to hear BP`s appeal around the end of May. Link to Article.
If your claim is one of those appealed by BP, and the 5th circuit reverses Judge Barbier, you will not be able to make further claims to the DeepWater Horizon Settlement.
If your claim is filed before the potential reversal, the common thought is your BP Claims will be grandfathered in, but they will have to meet some prerequisites.
If BP gets to rewrite the BP Settlement
This could drastically affect these claims in the BP Settlement:
- Professionals, Doctors, Attorneys, CPA`s
- Construction related Businesses
- Possibly Realtors
- Advertising/Marketing Companies
- and more, here is the list

Moving BP Claims from one group to another
We have been contacted recently by numerous claimants that have received incompleteness notices, or are not happy with their current Claims Handlers. We do not condone ” Claim Jumping” or like to handle others claims that have already been submitted to the DeepWater Horizon Settlement. It is so important to present claims properly the first time, cleaning up someone elses mess is more timing consuming then presenting a claim properly the first time.
However there are forms such as the AR1 (from the Settlement) that allows claimants to move from one claims professional to another, but they should only be used with all parties consent, and the initial party handling the claim agreeing not to put a lien on the original claim, or agreeing to a different fee split.
The fact remains, we should all have one goal in mind, and that is to get you paid.
Our Network gets BP Claims Paid.
Fees range between 15%-25%.
