(MONTGOMERY)--Attorney General Luther Strange reminded Alabamians today that they may be eligible to collect compensation from BP due to the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill.
“BP has agreed that many Alabama business and organizations are eligible for payment, and not just those located along the Gulf Coast,” Attorney General Strange said. “BP’s settlement with private plaintiffs puts a formula in place for compensation. If your business fits, it qualifies.”
To date, Alabamians have submitted more than 23,000 claims to the court-supervised claims program. Although the deadline for seeking a claim is not until April of 2014, Attorney General Strange urged that Alabamians with potential claims not delay and miss this opportunity to see if they are eligible for compensation.
Attorney General Strange stated that Alabamians with questions regarding their eligibility to contact the claims program directly at 1-886-992-6174 or to visit the program’s website, www.deepwaterhorizonsettlements.com.
