Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Lawsuit
To Protect Your Right to Recover Money Damages
The Filing Deadline is April 20, 2011.
A New Orleans federal court is overseeing litigation against companies involved in the oil spill and has approved the content of this notice. A trial will be held in February 2012. The trial will decide whether Transocean, the owner of the Deepwater Horizon rig, can limit what it pays claimants under Maritime law. To preserve your ability to recover money damages against Transocean and include your claim in this trial, the Court filing deadline is April 20, 2011.
If you had a personal injury, loss of earnings, property damage, business loss, or other economic loss from the oil spill you may be able to participate.

The Court has approved a Direct Filing Short Form. You can get the Short Form by calling 1-877-497-5926 or visiting the websites listed below.

The deadline for claims against Transocean, whether you use the Short Form or not, is April 20, 2011.
There is No Filing Fee

Filing with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) is Not the Same as Filing in Court
The federal lawsuit is separate from the claims process in the GCCF. You may be able to participate in the federal lawsuit even if you already filed a claim with the GCCF. There may be other requirements you have to fulfill to proceed with a lawsuit against BP and the other defendants.
If you have questions, you should consult a lawyer. For more information or to obtain a copy of the Short Form, visit www.OilSpillCourtCase.com or call 1-877-497-5926.
