North Alabama Businesses Meet to Discuss BP Settlement and BP Claims

North Alabama businesses meet with BP Settlement Administrator and Alabama Attorney General

Although many North Alabama businesses don’t know they can collect money from the BP settlement, Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange and BP Settlement Administrator Patrick Juneau are meeting with North Alabama businesses today to explain the BP settlement and the fact that North Alabama businesses may have large BP claims they don’t know about.

Birmingham, Alabama attorney Michael J. Evans, who publishes the blog BP Settlement News, is encouraging North Alabama businesses to attend the meetings with Strange and Juneau.

Michael J. Evans, an attorney representing North Alabama businesses filing BP Settlement claims, said: “Every North Alabama business man and woman who can attend the meetings with the Attorney General and BP Settlement Administrator on Wednesday should do so, because his or her business might be able to collect a large amount of money. Many North Alabama businesses may qualify for large BP Settlement payments without knowing it. For those unable to attend the meetings, they can view a video explaining how the BP settlement applies to North Alabama businesses at the BP Settlement Help website.”

Attorney General Strange and BP Settlement Administrator Juneau will help business owners and individuals understand the eligibility and proof requirements for submitting a claim under the settlement.

Evans said he is concerned that many people will be unable to attend the meetings, which, Evans said, “may be too short.” The meetings are set from 9-10 a.m. at the Cullman Area Chamber of Commerce, 301 Second Ave. S.W.; 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. at the Chamber of Commerce of Huntsville/Madison County, 225 Church St.; and 3:30-4:30 p.m. at Harbert Center, 2019 Fourth Ave. in Birmingham.
