As we have previously reported, the vast majority of lawsuits which have been filed against BP and the other wrongdoers involved in the Deepwater Horizon incident and resulting oil spill, have been consolidated in the MDL in federal court in Louisiana. If persons and entities having claims against these wrongdoers have not asserted their claims by April 20, 2011, some or all of their claims may be forever barred. It should be noted that filing a claim with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility does not constitute filing a claim in this court action. The federal court has allowed the joinder in this action, i.e., the filing of a claim, by way of a short form, which is available on the court’s website at http://www.laed.uscourts.gov/OilSpill/Forms/Forms.html. This website also has other information which may provide the answer to any questions that Claimants may have. Of course, individuals or businesses that have suffered a loss or been damaged should consult a lawyer of their choice to make sure their rights are protected.
