EVANS (EDIT)Don’t assume you can’t collect money from the BP settlement justbecause you didn’t get a class action notice in the mailBP Settlement News, April 22, 2013While hotel chains, fisherman and others along the Gulf Coast obviously have legitimate claimsagainst British Petroleum (BP) for losses due to the company’s 2010 oil spill, the disaster’sindirect impact on many other businesses isn’t apparent, and BP is happy to keep people in thedark. They don’t want you to know that your business could be owed money from the BPsettlement, even though BP didn’t send you notice of the class action in its recent (estimated)$7.8 billion Deepwater Horizon oil spill settlement.BP didn’t negotiate a cap on the amount of money that could be paid out through the BPsettlement. But it did several things to try to hold down the settlement’s cost, such as failing togive individual notice by mail to most BP settlement class members.But BP’s efforts to hold down the cost of the Deepwater Horizon settlement have not been assuccessful as BP had hoped. Patrick Juneau, the Administrator of the BP Settlement Fund, ispaying BP claims at a far higher rate than British Petroleum expected.

Yet many people in north and central Alabama still don’t know they’re eligible to file aBP claim. And that’s the way BP wants it.During their lifetime, most people have been mailed at least one of those cards informing themthat they could be part of a class action settlement, but often the amount they might win in thesettlement seems too small to bother with the paperwork. In the case of BP’s oil spill settlement,to protect its bottom line the company didn’t send many people notice of the class action. Weare not talking five or ten bucks here—you could be missing out on substantial funds rightlyowed to you, if you don’t join the BP settlement class.A business needn’t be located close tothe coast to be deserving of pay formoney damages from BP, which like mostlarge companies receives millions in aidfrom governments. About 500,000 peoplewere notified that they could be membersof this BP settlement class—far fewerthan those affected by the oil spill. Manymore business owners in Alabama,Mississippi, Louisiana and Florida aremissing out on BP settlement checks thatthey are rightfully owed, and you might beone of them, but the energy giant doesn’twant you to know.BP could have bought all mailing lists forbusinesses in the four affected states and notified all of the owners, but that would cost it a lotmore money. If BP could have kept it a secret that a Louisiana rice mill 40 miles inland wasowed money, or a paving contractor in North Alabama was owed money, the company wouldhave saved more than $30 million between those two claimants. You might not realize it, but BPknows that the numbers add up here, and not in its favor.Just as bad work practices used to save money contributed to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oilrig explosion that killed 11 people and thousands of animals and fish, BP also is trying to saveZip Code *Get Started Evaluating My BP ClaimFOLLOW US!Court Filings Related to theBP oil spillAmended BP Settlement Agreement Final Order and Judgment ApprovingSettlement 12212013Economic Loss or Property DamageDetailed BP Settlement NoticeFlorida Lawsuit Filed Against BP 4202013
