If you were impacted by the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico, you should mark the April 20, 2011 deadline on your calendar. This date marks the one year anniversary of the spill and is the deadline in the upcoming litigation. In order to preserve your right to recover against Transocean you need to file an answer and claim by April 20, 2011. The Court has simplified the process to file your claim against Transocean. The Court has approved a Direct Filing Short Form. You can obtain the Short Form by calling 1-877-497-5926 or on the internet at www.oilspillcourtcase.com. The Transocean litigation is scheduled to commence February, 2012. If you experienced personal injury, loss of earnings, property damage, business loss, or other economic loss from the oil spill, you should consider filling out this form to have the right to go after Transocean. If you have an attorney he/she may be doing this for you. If you do not have an attorney, you may find the form online and fill it our yourself. Anyone needing legal advice regarding their legal rights, should contact a lawyer. The list of industries which are considered to have been effected is growing . First it was the real estate industry, like mortgage brokers, title companies and other related real estate ventures that could file. Then the list grew to include casino workers and others. If you are a potential claimant, know your rights before the April 20, 2011 deadline.
