BP's Risk-Management Firm is Really Good at Screwing Over Oil Spill Claimants

LORDS OF THE DARKSIDE
"ESIS, the risk-management firm hired by BP to handle claims from fishermen, shrimpers and small businesses affected by the Gulf oil spill, is really, really good at its job. Which, if you read the company’s recovery services fact sheet, is all about “reducing our client’s loss dollar pay-outs.” When you cut through the jargon that means: paying out as little as possible. That little boast on ESIS’ website has raised the ire of Advocates for Environmental Human Rights. The New Orleans non-profit public interest firm has now sent a letter to Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, commander overseeing the spill response, urging the government to take a closer look at ESIS and the claims process, according to a Times-Picayune report. The obvious implication is that BP, which has had a relationship with ESIS for 15 years, is trying to keep its payments as low as possible."
