Law Firm Helps Gulf Residents and Business Owners Understand BP Oil Spill Settlement Changes

Farrell & Patel works with businesses and residents to help them understand effects of ruling and parameters for claims.

Miami, FL, April 23, 2012 --( To help victims of the BP oil spill receive the compensation that they are entitled to, Farrell & Patel, Attorneys at Law, are offering a full case review by a legal professional. It is expected that terms of the new settlement, which should be announced today, will lay the groundwork for a full transition to the new court-appointed claims infrastructure. Claims submitted by attorneys will be analyzed and paid according to the final settlement plan submitted to the Judge.

"As we get closer to the day BP oil spill settlements will finally be paid, we strongly advise clients to have their cases fully examined by a professional attorney," said Wesley Farrell, founding partner. "Within the settlement there will be important legal decisions that must be made including whether to appeal the determinations made by the court supervised settlements. It is important to note this is no longer simply a claims process but a court supervised settlement with extensive appeals rights. Having an attorney analyze and advise clients on their individual circumstances and legal options will be critical to maximizing recovery moving forward,” he said.

“The law is a very complicated process and it’s therefore confusing for victims of the oil spill to know exactly what to do in order to obtain the compensation they deserve,” said Ricky Patel, senior partner.” It is important that each case is thoroughly investigated by an experienced attorney. We are therefore encouraging people to consider our offer for their own case review,” he added.

In order to have their case evaluated by an attorney, victims of the oil spill can visit the firm’s website to learn more, then complete a simple form. The form, which takes less than three minutes to complete, requests basic contact information as well as a few specifics about the case in question.

“This settlement process has been complicated and it has been difficult for victims of the oil spill to know exactly what to do in order to obtain the compensation they deserve,” said Farrell. “We represent the largest group of hospitality industry businesses with claims, however, each case is unique, which is why we have forensic accountants, experts and attorneys available to review each case in detail.”
