NEW ORLEANS – A salesman for Grakco Rentals alleges his claim for damages relating to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill has not been settled or denied.
David Domigue filed a complaint on June 12 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against BP Exploration & Production Inc. citing the Oil Pollution Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that he has submitted a claim to the Deepwater Horizon Economic Claim Center but has yet to receive payment. The plaintiff holds BP Exploration & Production Inc. responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to deny or settle plaintiff's claim within 90 days after the date upon which the claim was presented.
The plaintiff seeks compensatory damages, plus legal interest, litigation costs and all additional general and equitable relief. He is represented by Paul M. Sterbcow, Jessica Ibert and Ian F. Taylor of Lewis, Kullman, Sterbcow & Abramson in New Orleans.
