Is my legal claim related to the BP oil spill going to be part of a class action lawsuit?
At Arnold & Itkin LLP, we treat each case individually because each situation is different. We start working on your case as soon as we are authorized to do so. Some would say that the only people who benefit from class action lawsuits are the lawyers. There are some advantages in consolidating cases when appropriate to reduce the cost of litigation for individual claimants. But in many situations, it’s better to have your case handled individually.
You don’t want your legitimate case to be grouped with others who don’t have good claims. Class actions also can take longer to resolve because of the number of the parties involved. It’s better for your good case to stand on its own merits. That is our experience from representing a number of individuals harmed by the Gulf oil spill.
The unprecedented harm of the BP spill will continue to affect property, business and the environment for years to come. 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. If you would like to discuss your complaint, then please call877-398-4972. We focus on representing your financial interests in claims against BP.
