Jackson attorney writes to MBJ about oil spill claims

December 11, 2012



Jones says BP oil spill affected more than the tourism and fishing industries.

When the BP oil spill occurred on April 20, 2010 it didn’t just affect the fishing industry or the tourism industry, it affected everyone in Mississippi in one way or another. The economy slowed down as a result of the spill and every type of business across the southeast lost revenue during that time.

In 2012, funds were set aside by BP to pay back any type of business which showed a dip in its projected earnings in the time after the oil spill. Many businesses in North Mississippi have ignored their potential settlement because they were not aware that the settlement was for them. Our firm has been spreading the message and working with businesses to determine whether or not they have a claim, and the evaluation is free.

We have seen claims from all sorts of businesses including: car dealerships, retail storefronts, hotels, restaurants, law firms, realtors, developers, and construction companies. Any type of business can file a claim, our experienced attorneys can quickly determine if your business is eligible for settlement funds and submit your claim. Our assessment of your business is confidential and free, you owe us nothing until we collect for you.

The process is simple and can be completed in just a few minutes online by filling out an attorney/client agreement and records release. Once these documents are in place we will begin immediately to assess your claim.
