HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - More than 100,000 claims have been paid by BP for its oil spill in 2010 and only 12% of those claims have been from Mississippi.
The Mississippi Oil Spill Claims, PLLC, want to help the Pine Belt businesses obtain more information on how they may file a claim and apply for funds.
"We've got businesses throughout the state of Mississippi, north of Hattiesburg, even Jackson area," said member of Mississippi Oil Spill Claims, PLLC, Dustin Thomas. "Many businesses have met the financial test and we think there are many more that would do so."
By hosting an informational at the Lake Terrace Convention Center, the Mississippi Oil Spill Claims, PLLC, hope to make more Mississippians aware of the claim they can file if their business sustained an economic loss in 2010 due to the oil.
"I would encourage any business, church, or non-profit that lost revenue in 2010, and that includes a lot, to come, listen, and decide whether this is something they would like to participate in," said member of Mississippi Oil Spill Claims, PLLC, Brian Montague.
If you are interested in obtaining additional information on how your business or organization can file a claim and apply for funds, the Mississippi Oil Spill Claims will host an informational at The Lake Terrace Convention Center on January 24 at 6 p.m.
