BP settlement administrator urges those affected by oil spill to file claims

As Thursday's deadline approached for Gulf Coast residents to opt out of the proposed class-action settlement of BP oil spill claims, the court-appointed supervisor had a message for anyone who may have taken a financial hit in the wake of the 2010 disaster. "When in doubt, file a claim," said Patrick Juneau, a Lafayette lawyer who took over the claims process in March.

To make his point, Juneau ticked off a list of claimants who were recently awarded a settlement: a farmer in Monroe, a clothing store in Baton Rouge, a construction company in north Louisiana. He said reams of businesses not usually associated with oiled birds and tar-stained beaches may be eligible: churches and nonprofit agencies; private schools; machine shops and car dealerships.
