In the on going process of resolving the massive BP Oil Spill claims process, some good news came out of a recent 5th Circuit Court decision to issue a mandate approving what is known as the Medical Benefit Only Class. This class settlement is separate and distinct from the Business Economic Loss Claim settlement class and involves a set compensation for medical benefit costs for the BP Oil Spill clean up workers. While this is a major program that has been set up through the cooperation of BP and the plaintiff attorney's who negotiated the settlement, little is known in general legal circles regarding the claims process, the importance of filing a timely claim and determining if someone actually qualifies.
This video on the BP Medical Benefit Class settlement features three of the leading BP Attorney's who are most familiar with the process of determining if you have a medical benefit claim related to exposure to oil, chemicals and other materials during the BP Oil Spill clean up process. Attorney Rick Kuykendall, Attorney Daniel Perez and Attorney Craig Downs join Speaking of Justice for a 15 minute legal and administrative tutorial on what this program is, how it impacts claimants, what attorney's and public interest advocates need to know about the medical benefit class and how to determine if you should file a claim as a class member.
