NEW ORLEANS – A Belle Chase company that provided support and services to the oil and gas industry alleges that BP has failed and/or denied its claim for damages.
Ultra Wireline Services LLC filed a complaint on June 2 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against BP Exploration & Production Inc., BP America Production Co., BP PLC, et al. alleging that they violated the general maritime law and the Oil Pollution Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that it was not compensated for the injuries and damages it sustained from the Deepwater Horizon spill that occurred on April 20, 2010. The suit states the plaintiff submitted a presentment claim to the defendants over the losses it allegedly sustained as a result of the spill.
The plaintiff holds BP Exploration & Production Inc., BP America Production Co., BP PLC, et al. responsible because the defendants allegedly denied plaintiff’s claim and/or failed to accept or sufficiently respond to plaintiff’s demand.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and punitive damages, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, attorneys’ fees, costs and all further relief that the court deems just and appropriate. It is represented by Lawrence J. Centola III and Christopher H. Carbine of Martzell, Bickford & Centola in New Orleans.
