    I’m a victom of the Apex EQ chemical explosion of October, 2006. I just heard we can receive $700 in settlement - how do I submit a claim? Thank you.

    The first thing you must do is get in a time machine and travel back to the time when all the necessary documentation was being completed by all the other residents of Apex who wished to be part of the lawsuit. With the aforementioned step not being possible at this point in time, you are in the SOL class of this settlement. At this late stage of the game, you can elect to hire a separate lawyer…if you can find one who’d take on a losing battle such as yours. You’re welcome.
