- Talk to a BP Oil Injury Attorney Before Filing Claims with Company
BP has been taking several steps to cover itself in the wake of one of the biggest oil disasters in recent history. There are many different levels of concern both for BP and the population that will be affected by this massive spill, and one of the main components of loss as a result of this spill will be lost revenue by small businesses. Recently, the CFO of BP offered details regarding how to proceed with filing a class action claim with the company in order to recapture losses suffered by businesses. There are many reasons why anyone who could have reason to file one of these claims should speak to a BP oil spill attorney before taking that step, and they appear below.
There is No Guarantee Your Claim Will be Approved
While BP will almost certainly pay out a large amount of money for the claims that are filed by gulf businesses, there does not appear to be any guarantee that all claims will be approved. In a statement, the CFO of BP stated that businesses should keep records of their losses that include canceled reservations and purchases. While these can be documented, this does not take into account the amount of business that will be lost based on those who never make a reservation or order a product. Therefore, not only will there be no guarantee that a claim will be approved, it’s also apparent that not all types of loss will be taken into account with these claims.
Accepting a Payment Could Harm Your Rights
In addition to the potential problem described above, it’s also possible that those who accept payments from BP for these partial losses will have to sign a waiver that removes someone’s right to file a lawsuit for all of the economic loss suffered by a business as a result of this oil spill. In effect, if you accept this payment, you may not be able to file a lawsuit after enough time has passed for you to be able to obtain a full understanding of how much harm this oil spill has done to your business.
Basically, if you have suffered a serious personal injury or property damages &/or loss as a result of this oil spill, you owe it to yourself to find out more about your legal rights before agreeing to anything with BP.

I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
I enjoy my work day here at Phillips Law Group and generally speaking I love my clients. Every day brings a new client or task to keep me on my toes. Administration keeps open communication and is hilarious most of the time! I love the way we celebrate FRIDAY, holidays and birthdays and how everything is so competitive. All in all I’m so fortunate to be here and I enjoy what I do.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
Many companies talk about teamwork but few practice it. Many companies talk about an employee friendly environment but few actually provide it. At Phillips Law Group the foundation of our success is making sure we work as a team and that we work in an environment that allows everyone to thrive and be at their best every day. Our firm understands that in order for the client to have a great experience the people responsible for that client’s case must be given all the necessary tools and encouragement to make that happen. That’s the Phillips Way. As a manager of this firm in charge of several employees as well as directly affecting the client’s experience I take tremendous pride in saying we live by these premises and we work hard to build on them and make them better every day. This is an amazing place because it has amazing people working here!
Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value As someone who is familiar with the inner workings of the auto insurance industry I can whole heartedly endorse Steven J. Jones and Phillips law group as someone I would want on my side should litigation take place. They handled my case professionally, honestly, and with satisfactory results which I would not have expected without enlisting their help.
My Attorney Sean Davis and his paralegal Hannah Dustin worked on my case. They listened to the problems that I was having with my case and they both got right to work. First they found me a doctor that actually listened to my problems from my car accident and worked quickly to form a plan that was comfortable for me and the doctor. The doctor was the best and after a couple of procedures the pain in my neck was gone. Behind the scenes Sean and Hannah were working hard to get my case settled with the insurance company. They kept in contact with me on all aspects of my case. They settled my case much faster than I expected and for more than I was expecting. If you want two real professional legal people to work on your case, I would highly recommend Sean and Hannah to you. I cannot say enough nice things about these two. Thank you so much, Rickey Hart .
