BP Claims and Sick People
Feinberg is evading BP Claims for Illness
A few months a go Feinberg said he had not seen any BP Claims for illness related from the BP Oil Spill. Then Mr. Feinberg said he had only heard of a few hundred BP Claims resulting from the the Oil Spill. The folks that worked on oil spill clean up, and the bathed in the water, or lived close to the coast and breathed in airborne Corexit are sick. We have received numerous calls from people who filed BP Claims going over their illness all with very similar stories and none getting relief from the BP Claims process.
BP Claims Process and Illness Claims
Feinberg is under heavy fire for not taking action within the BP Claims process for illness claims. His record supporting people that have illness claims in the past regarding agent orange and 9/11 is strong. Knowing that these sorts of claims were going to be raised again in the BP Claims process should have been taken into consideration. It took years to act upon the Agent Orange and 9/11 claims, and we should have all learned from that. Feinbergs excuse is that it is going to take time to know the true extent of the damages as it did in prior cases. The fact is people affected by the Corexit and oil don`t have that much time, and need help now, and not just monetary help but Medical Care, though some ongoing financial help in the form of BP Claims would help.
BP Claims vs. Litigation for Sick People
As it stands the only recourse as I understand it, is for people to sue BP for exposure to Corexit and oil. We have been forwarding your information to Attorneys that are taking action on the behalf of people that have gotten sick, and many of these people have found solace that they are being represented by one of the best Law Firms in the country. The BP Claims process is broken in so many places, and the inability for the process to take into consideration the people who have gotten sick from BP`s carelessness is a testament to it`s inadequacies. I call on Mr. Feinberg to fix, evolve, do so something for these people, other then making them part of a study, because people are dying here, this is about medical help now, and some sort of money that can help them as they can`t work, this needs to be figured into the BP Claims process. This process need to evolve so they can be considered into the BP Claims Process
