Medical Settlement With BP Clears Federal Court, If You Got Sick, You Can Collect

NEW ORLEANS, La.–If got hurt or got sick during the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill aftermath or cleanup in 2010 to 2012, you can now collect part of a settlement reached with the company. There is still a claims process you must go through, though.

According to the settlement website, an appeal to a federal court by BP was dismissed this week.

The site says you qualify if:

The Medical Class includes all people who resided in the United States as of April 16, 2012 and who:

  • Were “Clean-Up Workers” between April 20, 2010 and April 16, 2012; or
  • Resided in “Zone A” (specified beachfront areas) for some time on each of at least sixty days between April 20, 2010 and September 30, 2010 (“Zone A Resident”), and have had a “Specified Physical Condition” prior to September 30, 2010; or
  • Resided in “Zone B” (specified wetlands) for some time on each of at least sixty days between April 20, 2010, and December 31, 2010 (“Zone B Resident”).

The medical settlement was separate from other lawsuits and claims.
