Our role in the BP Medical Settlement
We met with many people that were affected and heard horror stories of people getting sick.
I had set up a few websites to help people get aid from Catholic Charities who were suddenly unemployed in mid May, many went to work on clean up, by early June clean up workers that were getting sick started going to the sites asking for help. This class of people were overlooked by most Attorneys, and in my opinion were in the greatest need of help as their health was quickly being affected. The BP Medical Settlement is a Step in the right direction.
Trends in the BP Medical Settlement
What we have learned since being involved with this from the beginning, is that the overall effects from the oil and the dispersant Corexit are devastating and far reaching. You see Corexit Bio accumulates in the bodies of what ever ingests it, when a shrimp eats zoo plankton, and a fish eats the shrimp, and we eat the fish, we eventually get sick, and that`s a fact.
A recent report has traced the Fingerprint of the oil spewed by the Deep Water Horizon to Zoo plankton and the carcinogenic hydrocarbons found in the Zoo plankton can be actually traced to the Deepwater Horizon accident. Do you know what eats Zoo plankton, just about everything, as it makes up the base of the Gulfs food chain. Here is the article link.
We have been hearing from many of you recently that have had children born with Birth Defects, loved ones who died unexpectedly after getting sick, usually from heart issues, not to mention many of you who worked the oil spill or resided close to the beaches that were affected.
The BP Medical Settlement does cover you and your family. For Example: If you live close to the beach, and have 5 people in your Family, you may very well have 5 separate claims.
From my experience out on Grand Isle you could actually smell the Corexit in the air as it was being dumped from the skies over the Gulf. There is no way this could not have affected peoples health, and this is what the BP Medical Settlement does cover.
