Online PR News – 08-April-2013 – West Point, Mississippi – Many businesses and individuals have been damaged by the BP oil spill. These companies are not aware of their eligibility to file a free claim against British Petroleum to recoup some of their financial losses from the oil spill. Many business owners who are not aware of their eligibility or have not considered it are probably able to claim funds for damage to their business, but they do need to file quickly in order to accomplish that.

In 2010, British Petroleum established a fund of more than $20 billion dollars to ensure the funding of claims against the company. That fund did not represent a cap on the liability of British Petroleum, but was merely a start of the funding necessary to satisfy legitimate claims.

In April of 2010 the Deepwater Horizon, a deep water oil rig located off the coast near Louisiana exploded. The explosion killed 11 and caused what is now known to be the largest oil spill in the history of the United States or the petroleum industry anywhere. The event caused a far reaching and catastrophic set of circumstances which have resulted in more than lawsuits being filed by more than one hundred and sixteen thousand individuals and businesses who were impacted negatively by the spill. In five states, Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas environmental and incidental damages took place which adversely affected the economy of the state.

According to Attorney Mark A. Cliett “If you were self-employed or owned your own business (or nonprofit business) from 2007-2011 and were based out of Mississippi, Louisiana, the western coast of Florida or Alabama for those years then you are probably eligible to file a BP Oil Spill Claim. About half of businesses are qualifying and the smallest claim I've seen is $19,000.”

Those who were the owners of business and non profit businesses in qualifying areas are encouraged to explore their eligibility to claim funding from British Petroleum.
