Is There Help for BP Oil Spill Cleanup Workers With Medical Claims?

The Life Care Solutions Group discusses options for BP oil spill cleanup workers who have medical claims.

LOS ANGELES, July 16, 2013 / -- Earlier this year, a federal judge gave approval for a settlement between BP and thousands of plaintiffs who claim to have sustained injuries or became ill as a result of the massive 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The settlement, however, only covers those with medical claims for those who were residents of a specified oil spill zone, leaving thousands of workers whose health was also affected by the spill to wonder where they could turn for help. The Life Care Solutions Group has launched an online help desk to assist BP oil spill workers who have questions about their medical and legal options in the event that they were injured after coming into contact with toxins during cleanup efforts.

As noted by the Life Care Solutions Group, a fund has been proposed to help compensate workers who were exposed to toxic chemicals or oil toxins and left with a range of heath complications as a result. A resource like the BP Gulf Oil Spill Help Desk is the answer to the prayers of many who joined in the cleanup efforts not realizing the medical conditions they would later be forced to face. Having been left out of a fund group in past decisions made to reimburse residents and businesses that were harmed, oil spill workers left in this predicament need information about their legal options regarding compensation claims.

The BP Oil Spill Help Desk is now open for injured workers and volunteers who participated in cleanup efforts and have found no resolution for their medical claims. Those who would like to schedule a free medical evaluation can visit today for more information about how to receive help.
