Beasley Allen attorney Rhon Jones visits the Beasley Allen Report each month to provide an update on the ongoing BP Oil Spill settlement claims process. This week, he visits with program host Gibson Vance to discuss the case. “Many, many businesses, from the bottom of the state to the top, are becoming more educated about the settlement and what they can do, who they should talk to and how they go about trying to see if they have a loss and get that claim paid,” Jones said. Businesses all over the state are able to participate in the claim, even if they are not located along the coast, which comes as a surprise to many, he explained. Jones, who is head of Beasley Allen’s Toxic Torts section, has been involved in the BP Oil Spill litigation from the beginning, and serves on the Plaintiffs Steering Committee for the multidistrict consolidated litigation.
