Every North Alabama business man and woman who can attend the meetings with the Attorney General and BP Settlement Administrator on Wednesday should do so, because his or her business might be able to collect a large amount of money.
Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) June 04, 2013
Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange and BP Settlement Administrator Patrick Juneau have scheduled three meetings to discuss how the BP Settlement applies to North Alabama businesses on Wednesday, June 5, 2013.
Michael J. Evans, an attorney representing North Alabama businesses filing BP Settlement claims, said: "Every North Alabama business man and woman who can attend the meetings with the Attorney General and BP Settlement Administrator on Wednesday should do so, because his or her business might be able to collect a large amount of money. Many North Alabama businesses may qualify for large BP Settlement payments without knowing it. For those unable to attend the meetings, they can view a video explaining how the BP settlement applies to North Alabama businesses at the BP Settlement Help website."
Attorney General Strange and BP Settlement Administrator Juneau will help business owners and individuals understand the eligibility and proof requirements for submitting a BP claim.
Evans said he is concerned that many people will be unable to attend the meetings, which, Evans said, "may be too short." The meetings are set from 9-10 a.m. at the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce, 301 Second Ave. S.W.; 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County, 225 Church St.; and 3:30-4:30 p.m. at Harbert Center, 2019 Fourth Ave. in Birmingham.
"If a business owner is not able to attend one of the meetings," Evans said, "that person can get more information from a BP claims news website, or watch a set of videos explaining the BP settlement.
Evans has joined forces with the Birmingham law firms of Yearout & Traylor, P.C. and Gathings Law to handle BP claims for North Alabama businesses. "All of our websites have contact forms that allow businesses to request a free legal review of potential BP claims by an attorney. Business owners may also call the law firms directly. Attorney Gusty Yearout can be reached at 800-226-6116 and Lloyd Gathings can be called at 877-803-3006. North Alabama businesses can consult with attorneys about prospective BP claims on the telephone, in an office appointment, or by using a website contact form."
The term "BP Settlement" refers to the settlement in In Re: Oil Spill by the Oil Rig “Deepwater Horizon” in the Gulf of Mexico, on April 20, 2010, MDL NO. 2179, that was finally approved by U.S. District Judge Carl Barbier on December 21, 2012, and filed on that date in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana. A copy of the Final Order and Judgment are attached to this press release.
