Unlike many civil defendants, BP has agreed to pay qualifying businesses within the zoned areas without the need for litigation. So if your business meets some basic criteria, BP pays your claim. You will not be required to be a named plaintiff in a lawsuit, nor engage in discovery and depositions. It is merely a matter of making application for benefits you are owed under the program.
How does the settlement program work? The court has designated a third party claims administrator, which has accountants and other staff review our claim submissions, and confirm eligibility and amount owed under the settlement. BP is then required to pay the sum confirmed by the third party claims administrator.
There is a confidentiality order that protects all of the financial information submitted by the claimants. Unlike public lawsuits, none of the information we include in your business’s claim package can be shared with any party except the claims administrator and BP.
