Oil spill administrator says claims process has problems

Posted on September 16th, 2010 No Comments

The administrator of the Gulf oil spill payments, attorney Kenneth Feinberg, has said that he can see ‘serious problems’ in the way the payouts are being made.

The process by which people are getting paid from suffering damage from the oil spill is taking too long, according to Feinberg. He announced that it is taking more time than he had anticipated.

Before the Gulf Coast Claims Facility opened in late August, Feinberg told people who were affected by the spill that they would be compensated within 48 hours and that businesses would be compensated within a week after they filed their complaints. As of now, only 22 percent of the claims have been paid.
