Want a Settlement from BP from Deep Water Horizon? Use the Map!
To get a settlement from the spill in the Gulf of Mexico, claimants must be in certain ares in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama and specified counties in Texas and Florida or been harmed in defined waters.
Since this issue of geography is so crucial to claim processing, the Court-Supervised Settlement Program has set up an interactive map tool to assist claimants in identifying to which zone their claim belongs. By simply inputting a street address, potential claimants can determine whether they are covered by the BP Settlement, and if so, which of the four Economic Loss or Real Property Damage zones they are in. Alternatively, claimants can use latitude and longitude information or simply browse the map for their location and zone.
