Frequently Asked Questions


What if I can’t prove that the BP Oil Spill harmed my business or family?

The oil spill attorneys at SouthLaw believe that many individuals, businesses, and other entities do not realize that they are eligible for BP settlements. In fact, many businesses, such as those listed below, have proven to be eligible for settlement funds—several will have multi-million dollar claims.

Our lawyers understand the resource demands and the complexity of large business claims. All types of businesses within the Gulf Coast region—whether sole proprietorship or large multinational corporations—with offices or divisions throughout the area, may have BP Oil Spill claims. SouthLaw and co-counsel currently represent thousands of businesses and individuals with claims, and we are here to help you, too.

What will this cost? How long will this take?

What will this cost? How long will this take?

Essentially it’s free. Our team of Lawyers work on a contingency fee. If we are not able to recover money for you or your business from BP, we do NOT get paid. There is absolutely no upfront cost to you.

Unfortunately, we can not put a definite time frame on how long it will take to process your claim. However, the Deepwater Horizon Settlement (BP) claim processing times are faster than any other settlement and should occur considerably much faster than a typical lawsuit. We will respond to your free form submission just as quickly as we can.

If it turns out that you do not have a claim, then please remember it’s free to find out, so there is no risk involved whatsoever.
