Attorneys: "There remains a significant amount floating in the water and along the coastline from Texas to Florida" -- "Businesses should wait before settling"


Houston Maritime Lawyers Say BP Oil Spill Victims Should Weigh Options Before Making Decisions on Gulf Coast Claims Process, PRWEB, December 7, 2010:

With the oil spill’s long-term impact still uncertain, Gulf Coast individuals and businesses should wait before settling potential claims against BP and other companies involved with the Deepwater Horizon disaster, say the Houston maritime attorneys of Arnold & Itkin LLP.

Gulf Coast individuals and businesses need to collect more information before signing away their right to take legal action against the companies responsible for the worst oil spill in U.S. history, Houston maritime lawyer Kurt Arnold said this week as a claims process for the disaster entered a new stage.

“While I understand the desire of many Gulf Coast residents to move on with their lives, the fact remains that we still don’t know the full extent of the harm and pollution caused by the BP oil spill,” said Arnold, a partner of the Houston maritime law firm of Arnold & Itkin LLP. ...

Jason Itkin, a Houston maritime lawyer and partner of Arnold & Itkin LLP, said information continues to emerge showing that the extent of harm caused by the oil spill is still uncertain.

“What we know is that the oil and dispersants didn’t go away after the well was capped in July. There remains a significant amount floating in the water and along the coastline from Texas to Florida, and business and communities will continue to be impacted by it,” Itkin said. “Several organizations are now studying the long-term environmental pollution and harm caused by the spill, including damage to the fisheries that have traditionally supported this region’s economy.

“That’s why Gulf coast residents, especially those with ties to the seafood and tourism industries, should monitor and collect this information before making a decision with the claims process that could affect their right to a full recovery,” he said.

    Least not forget Corexit and the synthetic virus's and what untold damage that will wrath that will harvest in destruction.

  • Absolutely, it is too early to determine a reasonable settlement; one thing to keep in mind that it is millions above what you may think. So, go high and make them cry.

    Please listen to the sound of the dead Gulf of Mexico, and recall the desperate animals trying to survive in the toxic stew BP left -- and indeed, created.

    Go high and make them cry.

    And now the Congress is considering to lower settlements or get rid of Class action lawsuits as a result of the latest Walmart suit. . Now take into consideration that Walmart with Gov., Homeland Security is putting in Screens now that ask you to report suspicious people or anything unusual or out of the normal. Welcome to East Berlin. Heard it on Alex Jones Radio show.
