The BP Deepwater Horizon Settlement Program
The Economic and Property Damages Settlement Program began operating on June 4, 2012. Navigating the complex program requirements of determining organizational eligibility, calculating compensation amounts, complying with administrative procedures and preparing claim documentation materials, as published in the over 1,000 pages plus settlement agreement is indeed, an overwhelming process for those who have not thoroughly reviewed and analyzed the program’s requirements. BPSS will handle all the details from claims initiation, eligibility review, financial loss assessment, documentation preparation, claims submission right through to the receipt of your payment on a confidential, efficient and professional basis.

BP Deepwater Settlement Fund
The explosion of British Petroleum’s Deepwater Horizon oil rig created a catastrophic disaster affecting millions of individuals who live and organizations that do business near the Gulf of Mexico. Since April 20, 2010, this unfortunate incident wrought severe damages to the environment and the livelihoods of those who depend on industries impacted by the disaster. Everyone from fishermen, resort and restaurant employees to charitable organization staffs and individual property owners saw their incomes disappear. In response, BP entered into a payout agreement with those who are identified as victims of the oil rig explosion.
It’s important to note that businesses and organizations are NOT required to show economic damage caused directly by the event. In cases like this, causation is presumed based on location and you need only have been located in an economic loss zone. Establishing a direct link between your business losses and the BP oil spill is NOT required.
