How do I sue BP?
There are a number of ways to bring a lawsuit against BP and other responsible parties related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. The state laws of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama allow individuals and business to recover money by filing a claim over another party’s irresponsible or negligent conduct.
The Oil Pollution Act of 1990 also requires BP to pay for all economic losses and property damage caused by the Deepwater Horizon explosion. We have heard many concerns about the pace of the claims process and the size of the claims paid by BP. Working through the claims process is a one step in the legal process of suing BP. An experienced oil spill lawyer at Arnold & Itkin LLP can evaluate your situation free of charge and advise you on the documents and paperwork you’ll need to bring a valid claim. We are representing a number of persons who have filed lawsuits against BP and other potentially responsible parties.

The Oil Spill Task Force, sponsored by Arnold & Itkin LLP, coordinates the financial, legal and investigative resources needed to represent the claims of businesses and individuals whose livelihoods and property are threatened by the BP oil spill.
