BP Settlement Claims

Accessing Environmental and Economic Justice

After the April 2010 BP oil spill devastated the Louisiana coast, LCJC cooperated with a network of legal aid programs to provide relief to low-income and vulnerable populations affected by the spill. LCJC guided over 3000 individuals through the process of placing economic and medical claims with the Gulf Coast Claims Facility as part of the BP settlement. From Orleans to Ouachita, LCJC was ready with answers, guidance, and support through the taxing process of receiving a settlement for overwhelming losses.
