BP Establishes New Settlement Funds for Economic Loss and Medical Claims
If you were a resident or clean-up worker of Gulf areas affected by the Deepwater Horizon disaster, and have developed a medical condition since April 20, 2010, then you may be eligible for benefits under a class action settlement against BP. If you have suffered any respiratory, neurological, skin, or eye conditions, then valuable settlement monies could be yours along with qualification for future benefits.
BP has agreed to reserve $7.8 billion dollars for the compensation of property damages and medical claims. If you or your business has been harmed as a result of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill, you may be entitled to a claim arising from this settlement. Claims are already being collected in preparation for payment.
If you meet the criteria below you may qualify as part of the Medical Class.
Clean-Up Worker between April 20, 2010 and April 16, 2012
Resident of "Zone A" for at least sixty days between April 20, 2010 and September 30, 2010, and have had a “Specified Physical Condition” prior to September 30, 2010
Resident of “Zone B” for at least sixty days between April 20, 2010, and December 31, 2010
Zone A consists primarily of certain beachfront property within a ½ mile of the Gulf of Mexico. Zone B consists primarily of certain wetland properties within approximately 1 mile of the Gulf.

ECONOMIC AND PROPERTY DAMAGE CLASS
In addition to the Medical Settlement, the Deepwater Horizon Settlement has also established criteria for Economic and Property Damages. On April 18, 2012, BP and the Plaintiff’s Steering Committee agreed upon a class action settlement that would compensate economic and property damage claims. These claims could include lost work, lost business income, lost rental income, seafood compensation, damage to your property, and many more. The courts have already given preliminary approval to this agreement that will establish a court supervised settlement program.
