There are two BP claim deadlines right now for the BP Claims Process that you need to know about.
First BP claim deadline that is coming up are 23 November 2010, this is the cut off date for the BP emergency claims payment, if you want to file for emergency claims payment you need to have your BP claims in before November 23 2010.
By filing a claim for emergency claims payment with BP you do not wave your rights to later file a lawsuit against BP for the damage they have done to you and your life.
BP Claim Deadline final claims payment
The second BP claim deadline are for the final claims payment from BP, this claim is more of a lump sum payment, the deadline for that is August 23 2013, so you will have some time on filing that claim. When you accept the BP payment for a final claims payment its important to understand that you will give up the right to ever sue BP over the oil spill and the claims you had against BP. The final claims payment is just that a final payment and you should expect no more payments and you cannot go after BP for any other claims that might arise in the future.
If you are not sure about how to file your BP claim or what claim to file I suggest that you contact an attorney or CPA that can help you with filing out your claims paper work and advising you on the best course of action. Remember the people that you meet at the BP claims office, that are all very nice are not looking out for your best interest, but just trying to do their job as best they can. So its important for you to have somebody in your corner that can advice you on your options.
