Gibson Vance, host of the Beasley Allen Report, welcomes fellow Beasley Allen attorney and shareholder Rhon Jones to discuss the latest developments in regards to the BP Oil Spill litigation. According to Jones, on Feb. 12, 2014, the medical settlement portion of the lawsuit was approved and Beasley Allen is now accepting claims on behalf of those affected. This settlement will involve those injured by the oil spill, such as cleanup workers and others living near where the Deepwater Horizon oil spill occurred in April of 2010. The medical settlement will allow those physically impacted to fill out medical consultations every three years throughout the next 21 years in order to have their expenses covered. Serious medical conditions appearing later in life can also be covered by this settlement if sufficient proof is found, Jones says.
