BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

BP to appoint independent claims mediator


HOUSTON (Reuters)—BP P.L.C. will appoint an independent mediator to oversee damage claims that arise from the giant oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the London-based energy giant said on Wednesday.

"We are absolutely committed to a simple, fair claims process that gets funds to people who have been hurt by this disaster as quickly as possible," BP CEO Tony Hayward said in a statement.

More than 26,000 claims have been submitted to date, resulting in payments of over $36 million, BP said.
