Chevron to hold meeting on refinery fire update
RICHMOND (KGO) -- Even though Chevron has now closed its claim centers dealing with the Richmond refinery fire, claims can still be filed by telephone. Chevron says it will continue to maintain its toll free number after processing about 18,000 claims from people who complained of health problems. The toll free number is 866-260-7881
Meanwhile, Oakland attorney John Burris says more than 3,000 people have signed up to seek legal action against Chevron. At a gathering in Richmond Saturday, Burris said the fire was preventable. He is trying to bring as many people as possible into the fold to join a claim of gross negligence.
Attorneys and medical professionals were among those offering services at Saturday's "Know Your Rights Community Rally."
On Monday, the first in a series of meetings will update residents on the investigation into the August 6 fire. That meeting will be held at 10 a-m at the Richmond City Council chambers.
