BP Oil Spill Settlement Will Start to Provide Justice for Gulf Coast Residents

British Petroleum (BP) has recently agreed to a settlement with plaintiffs suing for damages as a result of the Gulf Coast oil spill in 2010, the worst oil spill in our nation’s history. Although negotiations are still underway, BP representatives have estimated the company will spend an approximate $7.8 billion on the settlement. However, this number is simply an estimate, as the BP Oil spill settlement has not been finalized.

The damages or monetary compensation from every lawsuit or settlement are divided up into categories so that the amount of money is allocated for each particular type of claim for injury or damage. The BP settlement will be divided into two groups, people who suffered economic loss and people who became sick because of the oil and dispersants. The Amaro Law Firm is pleased with the fact that the BP oil spill cleanup workers who were exposed to the chemical dispersants and the oil spill will be allowed to participate in the settlement.
