Which Alabama Businesses Are Eligible For BP Settlement Payments? The Surprising Answer is Explained By Attorneys In a New Video Series Released on YouTube

Birmingham, Alabama (PRWEB) March 22, 2013

“Large financial payments are waiting for many Alabama businesses, and lots of them don’t even know about it.” said Birmingham attorney Gusty Yearout. “The BP settlement] approved last December was designed to rehabilitate businesses all over the state after the economic devastation of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill. We’ve also set up a BP Settlement Help website for businesses to get more information.”

“That’s why Gathings Law and my law firm have created the BP Settlement Help YouTube channel,” said Yearout. “We’ve just uploaded our third video explaining the settlement for people who operate businesses in Alabama. Our law firms have joined forces, hired economists, and set up a process to represent Alabama businesses to help them collect all the money they’re eligible to receive.”

Yearout and Gathings are lawyers who both have decades of experience in class action litigation. “Most class action lawsuits are confusing for class members,” said attorney Lloyd Gathings. “I’ve spent thirty years representing people and businesses in class action lawsuits. The BP settlement is one of the most generous I’ve seen for businesses that are in the class.”

“it’s important for everyone who operates a business in Alabama to know that they are class members in the BP settlement,” said Yearout. “The BP settlement is intended to let businesses anywhere in Alabama collect settlement money to help make them whole after the economic devastation of the 2010 BP oil spill. There are certain revenue tests to be met, but many businesses in Alabama are entitled to substantial payments. Some businesses in North Alabama are collecting millions of dollars.”

In addition to posting videos to the BP Settlement Help YouTube channel, Yearout and Gathings have also allowed the videos to be posted on a page on BP Oil News. The BP Oil News blog has been covering the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and the payment of BP claims since May 2010.
