Kenneth Feinberg says the Gulf Coast Claims Facility expects many of the roughly 585 denied claims will become eligible for payment under new, more lenient procedures.

Feinberg also says people who believe they have received far less than they deserve will get a review, and possibly another check. He says he wants to be generous and recognizes there have been some problems.

Fishermen and business owners lost millions of dollars after the April 20 explosion of a BP PLC-leased rig that killed 11 workers and allowed 206 million gallons of oil to escape from the company's well. Most went into the Gulf.
