BP Claims

In the wake of the tragedy of the April, 2010 BP oil spill, tens of thousands of oil workers suffered temporary or long-term health problems from exposure to chemicals associated with the cleanup and the oil itself. On March 2, 2012 BP agreed to place $7.8 billion dollars under the direct supervision of Federal Judge Carl Barbier for the purpose of compensating claimants.

The most positive aspect of this agreement is that there is no cap on the amount that BP will have to pay. This means that if the $7.8 billion is insufficient to cover the losses suffered by sickened oil workers, then BP will be required to pay more money for damages. The Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) has proven itself to be slow and inefficient in its handling of the claims process. Those who have been harmed by the toxic oil spill will find they will have no choice but to hire a lawyer because the GCCF is being shut down.

Those who have pursued BP oil claims with the GCCF have found the process to be slow, arduous and painstaking. Sickened oil workers whose lives have been tragically affected by the BP oil spill have found that their claims have not received the attention they deserve. There is no exception for such maltreatment, especially when these oil workers risked their health and longevity to take responsibility for the tragic oil spill.
