Victims Of BP Oil Spill Warned Not To Sue On Their BP Claims
Threats by Pay Czar Feinburg Lower Number of BP Claims Filed; Fear of Taking Legal Action Causes Financial Ruin for Thousands
BP will fund the Gulf Coast Claims Facility (GCCF) with more than $20 billion in profits for use to pay victims of the 2010 Gulf Coast oil spill. Washington-based corporate attorney Kenneth Feinberg is the “pay czar” who heads up the fund, and he set out on a media blitz to discourage potential claimants from pursuing legal action for damages. Feinberg publically announced that those affected would be “crazy” to sue BP.
The GCCF has only paid out 300,000 of 800,000 claims so far, and Feinberg has said that he does not anticipate the GCCF will process many more BP claims.
Feinberg openly warned victims not to take legal action.
Many homeowners and businesses in the Gulf Coast are suffering from Feinberg’s GCCF rulings. According to Feinberg, any person or business suffering from what he deemed the “perception” of damage – i.e. loosing your job, lower business volume, and other indirect negative repercussions of the oil spill – would receive no financial compensation from the fund.
Feinberg is also denying claims across the board for those who suffered medical conditions resulting from the cleanup of the April 2010 BP oil spill. The GCCF denied medical claims from people exposed to the toxic chemicals while cleaning up oil from the spill, and Feinberg cited “the inconclusive state of the scientific evidence” to illustrate that exposure to the toxins was actually the cause of their medical issues.
A year after the oil spill, President Obama issued a statement in which he insisted that the public should still hold BP accountable for the effects of the oil spill on individuals and businesses. Obama said, “Nearly 2,000 responders are actively working in the Gulf to aid in the ongoing recovery efforts. We continue to hold BP and other responsible parties fully accountable for the damage they’ve done and the painful losses that they’ve caused.”
BP Claims is an internet-based company that provides assistance to those who have filed claims but have not received money owed to them and those who have had BP claims denied by the GCCF. Since the 2010 Gulf Coast oil spill, BP Claims has consistently helped over 200,000 victims of the spill recover money from their GCCF claims.
