Start Up Business BP Settlement

I have taken the section out of the large BP settlement agreement that is about start up business, so people with a younger business can look what the attorney BP settlement has in place for compensation under the BP settlement agreement.

A start up business is a business with less then 18 month records at the time of the BP oil spill. So you would have to have started your business after November 1 2008 to be in this category.

BP Settlement Causation Start Up Businesses

The BP settlement follow the economical settlement with the Zones so if you are in Tourist and seafood the causation is given in Zone A,B,C. Any business in Zone A is presumed causation, so all go there.

Any other business than Seafood and Tourism in Zone B and C need to prove that the BP oil spill was the cause of their losses. For the start up company they have to demonstrate that the business is now good since the oil spill has been gone for a while. So Zone B start up business have  to show an increase of 8.5% in 3 consecutive month from May 2011 to April  2012.  Zone C has to show 10% increase. In Zone D the upturn pattern should show 15% grows in 3 consecutive month.
