Oil Spill Claims Notice
A New Orleans federal court is overseeing litigation against companies involved in the 2010 Gulf oil spill and has approved the content of this notice. A trial will be held in February 2012. The trial will decide whether Transocean, the owner of the Deepwater Horizon rig, can limit what it pays claimants under Maritime law.
If you had a personal injury, loss of earnings, property damage, business loss, or other economic loss from the oil spill, and you wish to file a claim for damages, the deadline to do so is tomorrow, April 20, 2011.
A Simple, Free Form
Filing with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility ("GCCF”) is Not the Same as Filing in Court.
The federal lawsuit is separate from the claims process in the GCCF. You may be able to participate in the federal lawsuit even if you already filed a claim with the GCCF. There may be other requirements you have to fulfill to proceed with a lawsuit against BP and the other defendants.
LANO advises all claimants to consult qualified legal advice. This notice is released as a public service.
