Case Study: New Orleans Lead Paint Settlement
This settlement involved children with lead poisoning living in public housing projects managed by the Housing Authority of New Orleans.
Starting with hard copy records found in the warehouse of a bankrupt defendant, Analytics assembled a list of victims from tenant rosters, public health records, and third party data sources. With a class displaced across the country by Hurricane Katrina, Analytics leveraged a “big data” search for victims as the basis for a notice program that was supplemented by targeted media including regional print, television and radio advertising. Analytics personalized claim forms with known health data to assist claimants in proving their claims. With multiple rounds of registration and claims, Analytics’ Global Claims Facility integrated the victim list, medical records, and Special Master review and allocated damage awards. This engagement finished with the hand delivery of more than $20 million directly to claimants
