A DHECC road map

As promised, I've completed another VO to explain what I've learned about how claims are processed by the Deepwater Horizon Economic Claims Center and who the companies are processing them.

This is not meant to be an "official" explanation, it is my perspective of the process after having looked into it over the past 5 to 6 months.  I may have gotten some things wrong and if I did I will publish the corrections in this post directly below the video.  The video is locked into this site so you can't watch it without coming here, therefore the corrections should always accompany the VO.  Please note the Creative Commons license on this website and on the video.

I, and people helping me, have put a lot of time and effort into this, if you are so inclined you can donate via the PayPal logo over there >>>>>>>.

1. Right out of the gate I got the multiplier issue wrong.  I said if you had $10 in losses you would receive $25 with a 2.5x multiplier.  That's not how it would actually net $35.  The formula would be the amount lost plus the 2.5 x the amount lost.  So it would be 10 + 25 = 35.

This is a very helpful format to receive a lot of otherwise tedious info. I look forward to the next segment.
